Painting description by Ananya

This artwork, which was selected for a gold medal, depicts a young blonde girl deeply immersed in reading. The clock on the wall and the light in her room and a somewhat darkened red hue over the horizon as visible through the windowpanes are clearly indicative of late evening. A rear perspective clearly adds a little suspense to the composition. Moreover, her reclining posture indicates that she is tired and the tilt of her head is a mark of the extent to which she is lost. What is it that she is reading, is anybody’s guess!
