Alvaro Castagnet Workshop

11 x 13"

I painted this, but it is a copy of one of Alvaro Castagnet's paintings. Because it was raining out, we stayed in the studio and walked through his process, using one of his paintings. I did not quite complete it, the front guy/ focal point is lacking necessary final detail, but you get the idea. I think of Castagnet as "the Swashbuckler" because he really doesn't screw around, doesn't mince or fuss or get bogged down in detail, even when the scene may be quite complex. Learned a lot of good stuff last week; wonder if/when it might show up in my painting.
