Yesterday a painting popped up into my timeline via the Watercolorists Group on Facebook and it was one of Richard Chao’s. After going through his collection I found this portrait of an Aboriginal gentleman that I loved.
Chao’s style is incredibly realistic. His portraits look almost like photographs with a Photoshop glamour blur turned onto the edges. I especially like how he captured the weight of this gentleman’s eyes.
