Throughout this series I investigated the way in which the so called gesture defines one´s own traits of personality. In painting, gesture means the act that is performed by an impulse and is said specifically about giving expression to a painting through the imprint of rapid movements of the wrist, elbow or shoulder. Furthermore, as very keen on graphology I believe that the way arm and hand move for writing says many things about how a person really is. It makes sort of a portrait and, accordingly, so does gestural drawing. I started this series in Huéscar in 2002 and concluded it in Palencia in 2006.
