Sistine mood

Sistine mood”, oil on paper, 42 x 29.7 cm, 2015.

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.
