A minor breakthrough in painting progress

Oil painting of a young naked man, golden complexion, lying on a leather couch, seen from an extreme angle near his foot. The yellows and reds of his musculature contrast with the couch's dark tones.

Iván Reclining represented a small breakthrough in my painting. The various aspects you have to keep in mind when creating a work all seemed to gel. I also felt far more confidence in my brushwork. Perhaps I am moving closer to defining a style of sorts. So I tried to capitalise on what I’ve learnt in these new works, Ángel Reclining and Pedro Seated (coming soon).

I’ve also added a few more charcoal works from 2019. The best of 2020 are on their way, I promise.
