I love color first and foremost. I am definitely inspired by color and light, and the people around me. I’ve been doing these portraits for probably around 10 years but not with much frequency. My process is pretty simple - I just keep a folder of images I’ve captured myself (mostly iphone) of my friends and family. What attracts me most to images I want to paint are good color palette, interesting lighting, and nice interaction between subjects if there are more than one. I guess my style is a little different each time I make something but it’s always very colorful and sort of impressionistic I guess. I’m not a big detail person. My paintings are mainly for fun but I would hope that they make people happy.
