An awesome 122 x 122cm modern painting that was inspired by chance after flicking through a magazine. There I came across a model who had unusual features and a striking 80s style haircut. I was actually unable to determine if the subject was a man or a woman. Hence the idea for a painting whereby the face had both the qualities of a man and woman.
So the sketch began with a strong use of black and grey paint establishing some outlines. I wanted this painting to have some depth, to be able to add a striking element whereby the viewer kept staring into the subjects eyes to determine their true sex. I added a hint of blue and apricot to help soften the painting and continued with the unisex theme. However as I transitioned further through the painting, the Warrior started to develop and the strength of the nomad overpowered the original intention. That’s the thing with abstract modern art, you never know where it will take you.
