Hey Y'all! Whassup everybody? hope you are all doing great! Here are some portraits that I have recently done.
1 - Fernando Pessoa (1888- 1935) was one of the greatest Portuguese poets/writers ever.
2 - Amália Rodrigues (1920-1999) was a Portuguese singer and actress. She was known as the "Queen of Fado" and was most influential in popularizing the fado worldwide. Fado is a portuguese music genre characterized by mournful tunes and lyrics. The word Fado means fate.
3 - Chico Buarque is a singer, guitarist, composer, dramatist, writer and poet. He is best known for his music, which often includes social, economic and cultural commentary on Brazil and Rio de Janeiro in particular.
I can't decide which version of Amalia's portrait I like better, so I'm posting both :) These where all painted in photoshop... this time I wanted something different, so I painted them in a different style, using brushes and overlayed textures to emulate traditional materials and techniques.
Hope you like them... Have a great week!!
Olá a todos, como estão?
Deixo aqui alguns retratos que pintei recentemente.
1 - Fernando Pessoa 2 - Amália Rodrigues 3 - Chico Buarque
Não consigo decidir qual das duas versões cromáticas do retrato da Amália me agrada mais, por isso estou a postar ambas. Estes retratos foram pintados em Adobe Photoshop, fazendo recurso de brushes e texturas sobrepostas em overlay para simular materiais e técnicas de expressão plástica tradicionais. Espero que gostem... boa semana!
