This portrait of a teenage girl was made using a quick paint technique. It draws attention to the carefully shown complexity of the psychological state of the model. Julia correctly captures the mimic, face, close look and the slightly tense and awkward pose.
The awkward age is like a bridge between carefree childhood and romantic youth. It includes many discoveries and changes to a person still formed. Julia has precisely brought to the picture the slight feeling of gawky in the beauty yet to be born; she shows us her love and unfeigned interest in the contemporary model’s inner experience and aspiration.
