Young lady

Three paintings of a very close friend of mine. I call them "young lady series" (there are two more). All of them are based on photos. From these three I think the most successful one is the first.

A young lady on the mirror, 2011 

It's quite a traditional portrait with a dark brown background (reminding the classic portraits of baroque etc). Due to my lack of experience with the use of acrylics, I wasn't able to make the portrait more alive and fresh as I wanted but despite this I’m satisfied with the overall result (mostly because of the sketch and the face expression). (30 x 40 cm)

Bienvenidos, 2010

Another painting of the young lady series. It combines a full body portrait and a photo of a wall I had seen in Cuba (in Trinidad). The proportions of the body could be made better (although here they are also even more distorted by the photo). I like the colors, though. (60 x 40 cm)

Portrait of a young lady, 2009

Another portrait of the young lady series. I used cold colors in order to emphasize the yellow hair. It is a painting I like, although it doesn’t resemble much the actual person. (50 x 70 cm)

Their struggle marked the beginning of a decade of workers' and students' mobilizations and the rise of the Autonomy movement. It was characterized by many as the last invasion of the working class into the sky. Last ... let's hope until the next one ...
