Young Love was inspired by a photograph I took while sitting at a cafe in Old Havana. There was a group of children playing when I spotted this boy and girl walking away from the group saying goodbye to their friends. Just as I took the photo the boy looked back to his friends and gave them a thumbs up, looking very proud as he had a beautiful lady at his side.
I used acrylic paint with a monochrome colour scheme for the portrait and for contrast in the background I used a combination of different recycled materials to depict a sunset that they are walking off into.
