In the forest: Oil on canvas 40x60 cm, 2011. Is a realistic painting of a Japanese woman in Kimono drinking tea. The techniques are glazes and pointillism. This is a complementary composition where red and green are presented as velatura. Red provides energy and movement at this nature thematic which is representing with green that provides freshness and tranquillity. The perspective obtain by; the representation of trees and a reed bed that have vanishing point in the centre, background doing by pointillism and a cross of diagonal that give movement and starts in the line that follows the face and the look and the line that represent the defined light. The elements are defined by the contrast of colour, curved lines that emulated femininity and give a smooth the movement. The look of the figure is directed into the cup but his thoughts are elsewhere, far away from Japan.
