    A Man of Color

    I wanted to make another portrait. I thought about a honorable man here that is so positive and has been so kind to me since I have been here on this forum. I love his artwork and admire his skill. The painting is intense, and I meant for it to be warm.
    I enlarged his avatar and sketched it, used oil and knife, watercolor and gloop. I made about ten layers adjusting effects and size.
    A tribute to our lovely forum mate Dr. Orianelima. Thank you kind friend!

    This is outstanding, and glows with affection. Alex, this is one of your best that I have seen in my short time with the forum. Brava!

    Even if it weren't Orianelima I would have marveled at the painting. But that it is our esteemed friend and admired art colleague and a star in his own right -- 5 of him actually -- why this gets five stars. . . er, smiley faces:

    Beautiful work, and I think Evart's jest is actually spot on. ArtRage forums is not entirely unlike The Love Boat in certain respects. Hahaha.

    So please tell me, what is Orianelima a doctor of? Medicine (specialty?), Divinity?, PhD?, Doctor Who? I could believe any or all of them at once.

    I've heard people referring to him being a doctor and I thought someone would spill the beans. Still no beans. . . I'm asking.

    Again, great painting. Very creative way to do a portrait. Five stars for you Alexandra.

    Sandy, great tribute to our esteemed Dr. Lima - I think you captured the vibrancy of his spirit in spades.

    Whodoo?

    He can cut me open anytime. I've seen how he paints and know he'd get it right. The man knows the heart.

    Wow neat! orianelima is pretty much awesome, and this really captures a sense of his work, his fantastic personality, and his amazing sense of color, all while maintaining your own artistic signature. Amazing. I love this!
