This is a captivating portrait of a young woman who we appears to be a traveller. The painting has a sensitive and cohesive colour pallet where the subject and the background almost become on.

She stands in front of us, in multiple layers of clothes to protect her from the elements. She also holds in her hands a wooden staff, that will no doubt assist her cross the rocky terrain that she will encounter on her travels. Despite her apparent young age she looks out directly at the viewer, unafraid, composed and captured in a natural state.
