When I was watching grandson Vyron he did some portraits... mostly by imagination.
Below is gramma. It made me think of Picasso's method of combining frontal and profile view points at the same time. I also noticed I'm the only one that got any fingers. snicker.
Below is his self-portrait. It was very important, in the name of Realism, that he add the red stripes on his shirt.
'Mom' dances below. I think the artist captured a very real essense in this portrait. To me it looks like the artist used the number 8 for mom's eyes. 8 balls. And mom IS a bit harried and feeling a bit behind the 8 ball right now. Mom is also off balance, which could be reflecting her current and temporary changes taking place. How intuitive!
The artist has declined commissions saying "It just takes too much of my free-flowing creativity away."
(sorry about the quality of the pictures. I was rushed. The gallery did not allow photographs so I had to take these on the QT.)
