Siblings - painting study

I painted this while listening to a cbc Ideas episode called Delusion of gender:
In 1797, the English clergyman Thomas Gisborne wrote a popular book called, An Enquiry into the Duties of the Female Sex. It outlined the different mental abilities of men and women and was a Victorian best-seller. Today many scientists believe there is a male and female brain. Australian academic psychologist Cordelia Fine begs to differ. She has written several books about brain development and the science of sex differences.
