The lilac colour in this portrait seemed to be one the Penelope Carwadine favoured as she used it on a number of occasions

Penelope Carwardine was born in about 1730, the eldest daughter of John Carwardine of Thinghills Court in Withington, Herefordshire and Anne Bullock of Preston Wynn, who was also a miniature painter. Her father having ruined the family estates, she took to miniature painting, instructed by Ozias Humphrey, and had acquired her art by 1754. Carwardine exhibited at the Society of Artists in 1761, 1762, 1771, and 1772. She was a close friend of Sir Joshua and Miss Reynolds
