Water girl – Pratikchha Thapa, Wimbledon College of Arts
Acrylic and oil on canvas
150 x 120cm
This painting is of a girl that I met in my grandparents’ village in Nepal. Even as I took the picture years ago, I had many thoughts running through my head. Now looking back at the moment, it seemed special, even if mundane. The little girl was tasked with fetching some water to drink, and so we went to the river nearby. She knew where she was going. I tried to portray that moment on the canvas. I like to paint of the little things, of own autobiographical experiences, and of people that I have known or met. I paint from photographs.
