Reflection

Grace, Age 11

  • Drawing
  • Painting on canvas with acrylic paint/pencil.
  • A2 portrait

My name is Grace and this is my first self-portrait. I started with a lot of detail in my eyes because I wanted to capture the depth of my reflection without expression. I chose the black background to show the darkness I’ve felt since being on lockdown and the flowers and leaves are my thoughts of happier times when I could go out and enjoy the beauty of nature around me.
