This little oil painting, with just the background painted with analogous colours of yellow-orange-red, was sitting in my studio for a long time. 
With the Coronavirus isolations I sketched the lonely figure with some indications of activities on the horizon. The figure, although it is in foreground, is almost transparent. I used just a touch of blue oil paint to make the figure more visible. The feeling of emptiness on the image is what I wanted to project.

Any comments are welcome. I am not sure if focus is on the figure or on the black "city" —  indication of "life", far, left on the horizon.
