Coloured pencil on paper. A close-up of the girl in the famous 18th century painting by Thomas Lawrence. I did a bit of research about the history of the painting. The subject's real name was Sarah but her family nickname was Pinkie. She was born in colonial Jamaica but was sent to attend school in England when she was about 10. The portrait was painted in England at the request of her grandmother, who was still back in Jamaica, missed her, and wanted a picture of her beloved granddaughter, posing on a background that looked like her father's Jamaican estate. So presumably the plan was to send the painting to Jamaica when it was finished. Pinkie was 11 when she started posing for the painting. Sadly, she died of a common illness, maybe something like TB, less than a year after that, like so many children did then.
