I love this painting, your use of color, the theme. Everything about it. Well done.
Oh nice. :3
Great portrait; great gallery.
Love your painting style and gallery. Barrie
Thanks for the fav. I love your work - I gave up doing expressionist work because no-one liked what I painted in the that style - I found it sooo difficult too - I am a neat painter and it was so hard to let go
Yes, funny how difficult it is to let go, that's my main aim - get away from realism to do something more "personal". but in the end whatever we do ends up being personal, so might as well let the brushes take us where they like :-D I definitely like expressionism and I think you are very good at it, just as you are with "neat" painting!
I hate smokers, but I love your painterly work here.
"hate the smoke, not the smoker" (or something like that) thank you very much!
That's kind of true, but so many smokers are rude about where they smoke and others throw their butts and ashes as well as second-hand smoke out of their car windows while waiting at stoplights. Sorry for the rant. You welcome, and work is really excellent.
J'aime votre style.
J'aime beaucoup celui ci !! ça me fait penser à un autoportrait de lucian freud, je sais pas pourquoi
Flatté je mets pas mal de matière sur mes toiles, un peu comme freud (toute proportions gardée). Merci en tout cas!
Great color palette!
Thanks! It was painted in winter, the light outside was cold and the shades in my flat were nice and warm, hence the warm tones for the shadows and the cold blue light of the winter afternoon As for the green tones... not enough vitamins? :-D
Wow this is raw and raunchy (In a good way), it depicts real life and real issues to me. Just raw and wonderful how you've captured the human emotion in this! <3's!!
thanks a lot, I didn't see the raunchy side, but now you mention it...
fucking cool and great style.
This is so awesome
Cool colors, and nice brushwork. Interesting concept as well.
