The Male Figure
I prefer creating my paintings from live models.
HOWEVER: I also can find inspiration in photos
and create something very different and new out of them.
My male-paintings can be
portraits head to waist,
or full length body .
Nude or semi-nude .
People often confuse nudity with sex.
I don`t paint porn!
Some of my paintings can be seen as erotic ,
but are almost never seen as sexual.
Ask for possibilities if you would want your personal portrait .
I can also work from your own photos ,
preferrence in taking the photos myself, if possible.
You`ll find my prizes quite decent.
Remember if you order a painting
prizes are made up by several facts:
SIZE , AMOUNT OF DETAILING ( = hours of work ) ,
CHOICE OF MATERIALS ,
If interested ask for more information
