Collateral Damage, different stages

This painting went through different stages (Feb. 2017). It started as a simple sketch of a bawling child, but took on a new meaning for me with the situation of the refugees trying to get to safety in rickety boats with their children. The portrait is fictional; for inspiration I used 9 different faces.
Different stages of development: sketch (2014), early version of the oil painting (2015), and the final version (2017).
