Lavender blue, Tilly Tilly, lavender green. When I am king, Tilly Tilly, you will be queen. ~ Sammy Turner.

It’s interesting that I chose a background of lavender and this nursery rhyme because her mother would sing it to her when she was a baby! I changed the words to fit Matilda, a sweet little commission finished in time for a new bedroom in a new house this Christmas. This little girl loves purple and pink. She’s now 18 months older from when I started (I can explain!) so I tried to add a little age to her face. As ever with these things, she looks better face to face rather than face to screen.

    Thank you Pascale! We are absolutely in love with the painting. Right from the beginning of the process we couldn’t believe how you had captured the likeness and essence of Matilda. It was ‘just her’ from even the initial drafts you showed us. It’s amazing to have an original painting of our girl and we’re so pleased we chose you to paint her. So we are now busy designing her new room with her own painting and favourite colours taking centre stage. It’s gorgeous and everyone is blown away by it when they see it for the first time. Thank you!
