REALISM FIGURATIVE

  

This painting is the first from a new series inspired by the Dutch masters. This series is dedicated to portraying vulnerability and the courage that underlines intimacy and makes it at all possible.

The painting technique I've used here resembles the Flemish method of layering thin veneers of paint between layers of varnish. I start with pencils, pastels, and varnish. After that, I paint a lighter layer with acrylics and finish with a couple of thicker layers using oils, gold leaf and glazes.
