THE PORTUGUESE FADO-PORTRAITS
The Male Figure
I prefer creating my paintings from live models.
HOWEVER: I also can find inspiration in photos and create something very different out of them.
My male-paintings are portraits, or head to waist, nude or semi-nude.
But never pornographic!People often confuse nudity with sex. We were all born naked, clothing is optional against cold, never to be ashamed of !
Regularly I walk the street and see someone that I think would fit great as a model.
Local guys, from Rotterdam that would like to try posing , can contact me.
I am 65 and professional enough not to mix my work with my private life.
Posing in the nude does NOT mean SEX ! It is in the mind of people, not in mine.
Ask for possibilities if you would want your personal portrait .I can also work from your own photos ,
but only if they are sharp and large format. I can change it to something very personal...
My prizes are quite decent. Especially unframed work.
Remember if you order a painting prizes are made up by several facts:
SIZE , AMOUNT OF DETAILING (= hours of work ) , CHOICE OF MATERIALS , eventually postage.
