Claerwen James, Girl in Blue Against Yellow, Oil on Board, 2009
Claerwen James is a British painter. Her father is well-known author and critic Clive James. She specializes in portraiture, in particular of young people. She usually paints from photographs and not from live sittings. I like that her paintings are not overly detailed but there is enough to capture the person's essence and their expressiveness.
