I wanted to portray the amusing idea that children have of not being visible if nothing is visible to them!
This painting was based on a photo of my granddaughter in one of her special dresses, although in the photo she was wearing large green glasses frames. I bought this children’s ‘llama’ sleep mask especially for this project and modeled it on myself, taking selfies in a similar light to the photo. It was fun.
Once I’d finished the painting I gave her the sleep mask.
