The trigger for my paintings are sensations and thoughts which appear suddenly or over time and are mostly related to introspection and social interaction. I first visualise the painting and then take photographs to guide me or paint from life. If I use a photograph I project it on the canvas, adding grids to some parts. As for the painting process, I usually start with the chiaroscuro with a transparent neutral earth; this makes it easier for the next stage when I add color, paying attention to hue and temperature. As I gain more understanding of painting materials and techniques, I am careful to keep that fluky initial impulse that drove me to paint when I knew nothing.
