A pleasure to paint,
a pleasure to dig myself into the topic,
a pleasure to learn more about these natives,
their lives, their habits, their struggle, their traditions.

"Eskimo Fisherman"
Sculpt by Romain van den Bogeart

The project was sold to a private collector.
Thank you for your support in my craft, work, art and passion!

Hope you like him!
Keep on happy painting!
