Acrylic Artists feature…… Figure artist Bernardo Torrens….

 

 

 

this artist is awesome! My favorite when it comes to depicting the female form with acrylics! He paints in oils as well, but only the last work shown here is an oil painting.  The rest are acrylic on wood.

The artist was born in 1957 in Madrid, Spain.

Of all the works made by the artist I enjoy the black and white nudes the most. Very sensual and the viewer is able to add colors as they like. Also interesting are the different twists of the body. If you enjoy this artists work you may also want to check out watercolor master Steve Hanks.

Also enjoyable as that the viewer can dwell only on one figure. There aren’t many emotions of different characters in his works, just a solitary figure.  The artist also is part of a dying breed of artists, one that uses the airbrush! Having used the airbrush myself, I am amazed at the control the artist used to depict his wonderful figures.

From my research it appears the artist is basically self taught. For me the artist, a successful artist be they in fine art or illustration are all self taught. You can’t just get art info in class, that might be where the seed is planted but an artist must keep reading of both past and current mediums and artists in order to always be growing.
