Hi Luis,
I really like the high contrast that you have going on here as well as the form. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Like it very much.

I love Surrealistic art and this reminds me of one of my favourite painters works, Salvador Dali.

He did a self-portrait (I think) with a Raphael neck similar to yours. Is that where you got the inspiration from or did you 'dream' it up yourself?

:P

Outstanding work!

Is this a portrait of a specific person, or from your imagination?

Hi Karen,
Having models is a little expensive so I dug up this vintage blk&white photo to get my inspiration. I am hoping with many years of practice to be able to paint the Human form from my mind =)
Thank you for your comment.

Best regards and inspiration!

Hi Devonna,
I paint from the Heart, Its been two years since I started painting and have found a new love..., Art is a true Gift that connects us all in the deepest levels. I have shown in a few places but have found that spreading my artwork through the internet I have more exposure.
Thanks again
Best regards & inspiration
