Do Thi Kim Doan works mainly on portraits, especially those of the ethnic minority women and children in the North of Vietnam. Her paintings have a coherent structure and melodic rhythm. Her deformed plastic art is natural and her graphic lines are fluent. She uses many tones of colors including the cold one which is not familiar with traditional lacquer. Many people say that her art style and herself is just one.
