Towards the beginning of my gunpowder painting career, I became obsessed with learning to create portraits and felt the need to master them so I would be able to do commissions with confidence. I decided it’d be best to use iconic faces to prove it could be done. It worked! I really learned a lot during the process and still enjoy creating them from time to time. However, I’ve chosen to focus more on those who approach me to create a portrait of themselves or loved ones. I can create more than just faces so, if you’re looking, feel free to contact me!
The First Portrait Series
Below is the first portrait series I created. I experimented with different colors of smoke bombs, amounts of gunpowder and other mediums. Have you guessed I’m a Dali fan? There is also a Dali VI, but it seems I didn’t get a proper shot of it before it sold.
I now have an extended collection of famous portraits so I thought it might be best to put them all in a single category (Famous Faces) to make it easier. I mean, some people know what they’re looking for and I want it to be easier for them to find it.
