Just thinking
Acrylic on stretched canvas.

This was a project from the time I was in the art school.
I was trying to create a portrait of a person without the person (without a model).
I think that drawing or painting from a model is good exercise, it lets you understand proportions, light and shadows, skin tones, etc.
On the other hand when you create something just using your imagination the result will be unique.
You will ask yourself why this color, why these shapes, why that posture, gesture, position, what’s wrong with me, and there will be no right answer.
