Helmantel .Tapuit. 21.5x24.5cm. 2004.This could look really good with pastels. This could be the first link between my artists. It is a very calmed painting and sad at the same time, because the bird looks delicate and silent and still, but the whole reason is because it is dead. I think that Helmantel deliberately chose to leave him alone in that table because maybe he was feeling like that as well, or he wanted to represent 'solitude' or even a feeling of melancholy.
