Memories

Memories by Nela Dunato

Dreamy mixed media portrait of a mysterious woman. Could be a vampire from another century, could be a modern goth girl wishing she was...

After drawing many similar small portraits in my sketchbooks lately, I used the same technique to make a larger piece. This spontaneous way of working poses challenges, but also allows for happy accidents and inspiration in the random shapes.

Reference photo by Tuva Mathilde Løland. The way colors mixed on the paper perfectly matched the profile shape of forehead and nose, and that's the main reason why I chose this particular photo.
