nina nettlefold


my studio at winterbourne was adjacent to nina’s teenage bedroom so i walked though her bedroom daily on the way to my studio. this was the first portrait study i made of the family and it was instinctive, happening quite quickly. much of the reference material i used, old photographs etc., showed the ladies in different hats. i do like hats and have a whole selection myself. i hope i’ve managed to capture a touch of the teenage angst i dimly remember. i like the palette i used and the palest duck egg blue background.
