Study, oil painting techniques portrait

Study (oil painting)

I’ve been trying to find a way in painting that is sensory but avoids naturalism.
There is something about the icons that fascinates me a lot. I must understand to what extent I can style the image without losing the ability to stimulate the primitive senses (heat, cold, hunger, compassion…)
(the problem with Icons is that they are usually symbols, and symbols need context; Context makes painting more discursive; and a work that discourse comes first is definitely not my goal.)
