After a precise drawing and execution of the background, like a printer. The portrait begins at the top, and appears with all its details as it descends, finished at the bottom, like a rolling curtain.
Precision in the execution
The white is that of the canvas, the single color used (special affection for the red) corresponds to the purest shade. It is only the amount of material deposited by touching or loading the canvas, combined with the white of the support that defines the different shades, without any mixture ensuring the purity of the pigment in all its gradations. The whites are preserved in the watercolour style. The tones can only be raised, but not lightened, hence the precision required during the execution.
