This is my first historical attempt. I wanted to create a warm desert type atmosphere putting a lot of red on the mix.
Almost all of the project is based on pictures of real faces and leather. This is my way to paint, copying life.

Hope you like it!

    Awesome Aythami! As I commented in FB, for me is the best version for long… GOLD for sure!

  • Luc "Windtalker" Vanpoucke

    Fantastic realistic painting, congrats. Oilpainting Aythami ?

    • Aythami Alonso Torrent

      Thank you Vanpoucke. That was my main goal.
      No oilpainting. This effect is done by giving several strokes to still wet glazes taking out the water of the paint. The result is a semi-satin looking perfect for sweaty faces.

    I’ve also painted this fantastic bust and I must applaud you on your version.I also find your way of painting very refreshing i.e. copying life,as it’s a welcome change to see work that isn’t OTT which seems the trend at the moment

    • Aythami Alonso Torrent

      Thank you for your words brian. “Real” or “fantasy” way to paint, the main goal on it is to give emotions to the viewers.

  • Aythami Alonso Torrent
