Anthony is seated in front of his laptop next to a mirror wall, in contemplation. The portrait contains two figures, Anthony and his reflection in the mirror. The two figures are intentionally the same size, but they are different in tone and in textures, expressing all the more each figures character and spirit.
One of my main sources of inspiration is Rembrandt. The two figures are the same size, with a mirror wall and a bright background, thus deviating from a more realist approach.
