Artist Showcase: Cristina Troufa
Hello! I don’t know about you, but these paintings rocked my world a little bit! Cristina Troufa, a crazy talented artist from Portugal, uses such a unique approach to painting (or rather, not painting). Her paintings are all focused on people and the human form: how they move, what they’re thinking, and how they feel. Coming from someone who has struggled with drawing anatomy: this is not easy. Yet Cristina Troufa makes these forms look so incredibly realistic and human. Mostly without paint. Wow.
Most of the form is implied with line, with the face and skin totally stealing the show. The thing that I find so exciting (personally!) is all the brush strokes and colors used in the skin tones. Stunning!
