Statement

I have always been interested in the study of the human figure. It is awesome how human body can be a vehicle to express deep thoughts and moods which we go through during our lifetime. Portraits: The face is like a portal, you can enter into people feelings through the look.

Before I start painting I study the proportion of the subject and draw a grid that helps me to place the face on the canvas. I like to work with acrylic paint, specially because it dries fast and this makes that my brush strokes do not lose spontaneity.
