I love painting this person. He has a certain dark mystery about him.
His hair/beard/tattoos/face make him an interesting subject.
The dimension of this piece allows broad brush strokes, it gives a fresh, expressive feel.

I am a figurative painter based in Cornwall UK.
I adore the work of Jenny Saville, Nick Lepard, Tai Shen Schierenberg...wonderful figurative painters.
I like to use broad chunks of colour to describe flesh, it is more expressive than blended tones, and sometimes gives an abstract feel to a piece.
