This is a portrait I did of my sister. The word “chary” means “cautiously or suspiciously reluctant to do something”. I wanted to do something a little more experimental with colour and with the brushstrokes than what I had previously been doing. I think the vibrant energy of the colour and brushstrokes really contrast with her expression.
