John Bavaro for JKPP



Pin It
"John Bavaro", 30x24cm oil on canvas panel

























The focus with this painting was on brushwork. I only used some linseed oil mixed with Sansodor to thin the paint but mostly used the paint in the consistency straight from the tube.

This is good, Erik! I like the texture and skin color temperature variations.

Hoi Erik, dit portret is in mijn ogen sterker dan jouw vorige. Het lijkt bij jouw portretten van Julia Kay een zoektocht tussen vrijer en realistischer werken.. Kleurgebruik is bijzonder met die warm koud balans.Complimenten!

Thanks Arto! I really enjoy playing with color temperatures, especially in skin lately.

Dank je Hanneke!

The brushwork, and the blues throughout, drew me in!

Good to hear you took the bait Pam :)
