Featured Artist 4.10.08

Although I love simplicity in art, with clean lines, flat colors and what have you, I also am very much in love with a painterly style of work as well. Therefore I absolutely love the art of maronresur, who is a master of portraiture. My favorites being the "Slave Army" series.

"Slave Army 5"

"Slave Army 8"

These are beautiful portraits!
I love the palette. You should check out Jenny Saville. Some of her paintings are pretty gruesome, and even grotesque, but she has some really amazing portraits too. Lots of thick paint and bright colors. They are really beautiful.
