Red, Academic bust - 2023
Work: Painting
Scale 1:12, Mindwork Studio

In private collection.

Finally, happy with the photos of this project.
Painting this was a true joy and a big study for me in focus on painting skintones.

Attached you can see photos on grey background, plus size comparision to a bottle of paint, plus a photo in the cabinet beside other figures to provide a true sense of how the bust looks. You can find a lot of Work in Progress and explanation material on this bust via my Patreon. Link below!

Keep on happy painting!

      Thank you very much! I really tried to study the depth of the skin and its colorful layers with this one.

  • MartinSporka

    Truly masterful piece! I love the colour pallete, the range, each colout is on its right place and overall it looks natural. The great thing is that we can learn from what you learnt :) Thank you for that!

  • Josh_Underhill

    This is the most striking skin I’ve seen in a while. I particularly like the light and form given to the raised left arm and the red ambient light on the other side
