For a long time I was almost scared to even try painting people or animals due to some failures in the past. But I was more and more intrigued by it and once I digged deaper into the techniques and gained some skills through practice I started to really enjoy the process.
I like to emphasize the eyes which are the window to the soul and once they are done every painting comes alive. I intentionally loosen my brushstroke on the areas of the rest of the body and the backgound which automatically draws the viewer’s attention to the face.
Most of my portrait paintings are commissions which is why you don’t find them in my Shop. Please check out the conditions for COMMISSIONED WORK here.
