Joao Ruas Portrait

Portrait of fellow brazilian artist Joao Ruas -
I worked using memory and small online photo of his in one of his show openings.
My idea was to interact with his face in a very aggressive and personal way. This was the first time I tried a portrait like this.

Palette used:
  • cobalt blue
  • alizarin crimson
  • cadmium lemon
  • burnt umber
  • raw umber
  • ultramarine blue
  • burnt sienna
  • titanium white

  1. Really like that first one ! I think I like the "rough" aspect of it with big touches of color
