What do see when we know someone – is it their physical appearance or their energy?

Lynne G, 41

I wanted to paint something that captured my daughter Lucy as she is now – she is growing so quickly, however, I never was good at portraiture. I started to think about what makes a successful representation of someone in art terms, and I realised it’s much more about capturing that special characteristic and personality trait than just their looks. For me Lucy is all about movement – she never stops, her energy amazes and exhaust me all at the same time.
