Head Old Lady

This image was taken from a sketch of three old ladies sitting in a local pub ( The Borough Arms )in Barry, South Wales. They sat together but said very little. This lady seemed consumed with a feeling of discontent. The light green and black portrayal of her face projects this. In the Buddhist tradition pale green depicts the kingdom of death, a corpse and everything pertaining to the realm of the dead. Her coat is deep red and black and she radiates into her surroundings dark blue/black. The colour black represents the primordial darkness, the void, despair and sadness. In the Buddhist tradition it is the darkness of bondage, blue/ black
signifies chaos.
