In this picture, I used a photo as a reference, with the intention of capturing her emotion of sadness.
Now I don’t remember the picture I used since the reference photos are mostly taken from the internet and never look like the person, but I try to capture the person’s imperfections and what it transmits to me, imagining what he was thinking about him time to take the picture.
All this process is totally intuitive and never know how it starts or how the painting will take place.

In my portraits, my references sometimes are photos or my imagination.
I don’t like to make a perfect portrait of the character, I search to capture sensations or emotions that it transmits, which seem more volatile and unimportant, but which are more important for me.
