This collection of original oil paintings were executed in tonal variation to empahsize a sense of mood and story. I use only high quality oil paints and medium. After drying, each painting is finished with a matte 100% pure damar varnish.
More portraits can be found by clicking "Gallery" from the menu above. Click on Go to Link provided when rolling over images to find out more about that image and to view other paintings.
These paintings are from
"The Hundred Portrait Project"
of 5 inch square oil paintings executed between 2011 and 2012; using old family photographs, vintage snapshot finds from thrift stores & flea markets, as well as professional and nonprofessional images as reference.
