About the Work
The ground of the painting has been gently washed with tones of fallow and beige, enhancing the natural colours of the raw canvas. Three parallel strokes in pale pink, chocolate brown, and cream have been confidently painted on the surface. The glossy nature of the surface paint is in beautiful contrast to the matte ground, creating a soft tension like the memory of a kiss left upon the skin.
