THE PORTUGUESE FADO-PORTRAITS
The Male Figure
I prefer creating my paintings from live models.
BUT: 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.
Regularly I walk the street and see someone that I think would fit great as a model.
Nine out of ten people will refuse after asking because they are affraid or shamed in being nude.
Often , I am confused as being a "dirty old man", disguised as an artist, just out for sex.
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.
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.
