Artwork The Bartered Bride


A4 size ink and watercolour, mixed media work on paper, a soft and haunting figure of a mysterious bride reminded me of Bartok's Bartered Bride. This bride is timeless though, and could just as easily be from the future. Details of lace and silk organza in misty lilac. Her intense and yearning look communicates uncertainty, but also a fierce determination beneath the docile exterior.
