Artist comment - 

This lovely lady The Explorer - Rapa Nui is from the Easter Islands.  I loved the strength that she shows.  She is one of the first people that I have painted.  I enjoyed trying to get the facial features in perspective and tried to pay special attention to the shells and feathers on the cloak.  I really wanted these to stand out.

The feeling of this painting evokes great strength and wisdom.  There was something about this image that drew me to her.

I really love this piece and it is one of my favourite works to date.

All of the colours in the painting work together and I only use five or so colours in each of my paintings to create a cohesive series of work.
