#19 Acyrlic on Canvas 45x30. The inspiration was from some folks I thought were cool and were not. Thank you for your time in viewing and comments are welcomed.

Sergio, so dynamic. I love the pose, the color, and the contrast of lights and darks.

:wave: Hi Sergio!

WoW! This is very dramatic, and beautiful! Well done on the different textures. The expressions on the faces along with the body language of the figures read haughty and aloof - you've captured both personality and a moment in time so well. :thumbsup: All together, a superb piece though it's unfortunate the memory is not a fond one.

Fantastic. I great job on the faces and the modeling of the clothes.

this is SO well done... I say you go one further and enter it into a competition...it's REALLY well done!

This is stunning Sergio!! The masks are amazing and I love the mystery of the dark background. I love this one!!!

A wonderful piece Sergio! The subtlties of shading on the masks is brilliant and that ruffle leaves me gob-smacked! Besides the technical mastery, the subject matter is intriguing and the drama is compelling. So well done! :clap:

Sergio. I like this very much. Nice shading and folds. Very mysterious and the colours are wonderful. Well done.

I like this very much, too! What a great example of turning something negative into something fabulously positive!

Looks good. I really like the intense colours on the dark background.

FANTASTIC. Upload it in the photography forum and noone will question it. Very realistic. Great idea behind it too.

Great painting. The mood of this painting is/feels dark and sinister. I believe you caught/described what you wanted to with your talent. Upon first glance it caught my eye and my feelings. Beautifully done. Barbie

Well done. Those yellow areas really catch my eye.
