Title: The Cord Maker
Subject: 17th Century girl making cord
Medium: Oil on canvasboard
Size: 16.5" x 12.5"
On continuation of my 'period' paintings, this piece features a young lady of the 17th century period making cord. I was particularly inspired to paint this image because of the strong sunlight that is cast upon the lady's clothes, the secondary light then under lights her face which is in shadow.
This image was painted by kind permission of photographer Susanne Atkin.
