I was awestruck by an old man I met in London. I was with some friends and had just left a Pub when I noticed his stand filled with flowers. I asked for the Blue and Orange arrangement and then on paying for them noticed that he was blind. I asked how he knew the colours if he couldn’t see them and he told me it was the scent and feel. Asking if that worked for everything he reached out and touched my face and hair then told me about my hair colour and completion. We were so impressed we helped him close his stall and took him with us to the next pub. On returning to Australia, I painted his portrait as he would see himself, with no reference to visual or physical structure, just shape through touch.
