I'm not completely sure what Wanderer is about. I'm hoping I don't sound like an utter fool by saying this painting came from the canvas cloth it was painted on. I knew for sure I wanted to paint but had no idea what to do. So instead of thinking, I started tracing the creases and lines of the cloth in charcoal. Eventually I started to see a face and that's how Wanderer emerged. I didn't have to do much mixing of the paint. Since the cloth was dry it took some effort for the paint to stick but I like the effect it did leave. It was a quick piece that I did rather quickly, majority of the work was done in one afternoon. As for the size of it, I'm sure you can tell from the photo the canvas cloth is about the size of a door.
