The Art and Where to Find It

For Mum

Artist: Rachael Caddy

Year: 2008

Location: College Walk

A pencil crayon portrait of the artist and her sister Jenny, and as the name suggests it was a gift for her Mother. It captures the close relationship of the sisters and also how much fun they have together, capturing a moment when they weren't taking themselves too seriously. Rachael said: "It is really important to me when creating a portrait to draw something that shows a person for who they are in a moment in time rather than something that is heavily posed and looks forced. Colour and composition are also very important for me as they can vastly alter the mood of a piece."
