My friend and colleague, Robin, modeled for me after work one day and I decided to paint him. I love the style of Valeria Duca’s painting which I had recently seen in a gallery in Oslo. I tried to copy it, while still making it my own. I am also a huge fan of Andrew Salgado and Agnes Grochulska, so I might also have drawn inspiration from their work. I am planning to make this a series of painting focusing on portraits.
