Joeralt on Art
People are perhaps the most fascinating of all subject matter in the art of painting.
Portraits, full figure clothed or naked , are great challenge with great reward when it touches the soul of the sitter.
I was always fascinated with he many expressions of faces and how the many intricate details are put together to represent the uniqueness and individuality of a certain character.
Revealing the inner layers of a persons face beyond the outer form expression was always my goal.
Working from general feelings, searching for those inner layers trying to balance the likeness to the need for my own individual artistic expression is the real challenge.
If successful , it’s a good work of art worthy more then mere representation of the specific likeness.
On this page you can find some examples of my work in different mediums and if you find my style of painting in one of those mediums appealing, you can commission me to paint your own portrait or your loved ones.
