Purple, an original painting by Andrew Thompson

Date: 2010
Style: Acrylics on canvas
Size: 60cm x 75cm

"Purple" depicts a girl sprawled out asleep. One breast is exposed, not coquettishly but simply because her clothes fell that way while she slept. I wanted to capture the subject completely at ease and unthreatened – without a care in the world.

On the surface, that might sound uninspired but when was the last time you felt that free and utterly safe?

"Purple" is the companion piece to "Catnap", and it's a style that I thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with during 2009.
