Amy has been a great subject for several of my workshops over the years. This pose, reminiscent of The Girl with the Pearl Earring caught my eye. It won the A.M.E. Bale Prize for Best Work on Paper in 2010 as well as Runner-up Best Painting in the PSVA Annual Exhibition and also Best in Show at the Australian Guild of Realist Artists’. It also hung in the Victorian Refusé Exhibition in Melbourne.
