Captured on canvas are these portraits of four women, fashioned with the distinctive Lee Long Looi technique of elongating the features and the face. The mood is serene, contemplative and with slight contrition. Done in lovely, delicate and soft colours with streaks of vibrant chalky colours running through their veils and their eyes and lips, they are all wearing a neutral mien, their eyes downcast. These ladies are reminiscent of nymphs, as the atmosphere is almost spiritual.
