Xin in Michelangelo mood

About this artwork

from the series “Sistine mood”, oil on paper, original size: 42 x 29.7 cm. This series of drawings was inspired by Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. Some portraits are directly based on the figures painted on the vault. Then I painted other faces trying to reproduce that style, and the characteristics that in my opinion distinguish it: the intense expression of the faces, the light and half transparent colors as if the aim was to let emerge the underlying drawing, the profile marked by a darker line, the background of a mostly uniform sky. In most of my paintings, both on paper or on canvas, usually my work proceeds with the sedimentation of several layers of pencil drawing or chiaroscuro and oil colors. Often the pencil drawing is repeated over the paint and then again another layer of oil color partially covers it. My original artworks are also available for sale. Please contact me if you are interested in more information about my work, the sales prices of individual works, the costs of the expedition or the availability for work on graphics.
