Linda Chaves – Art for Sale

My Painting Process

The Golden Buddha. Now sold. Prints available

My aim in painting is to create a picture that will leave a strong impression, with impact, that will speak to you, and that will enhance and be very present in your home, almost alive. I use bright, strong colours and textured backgrounds to help me achieve my goal – these are also strong reminders for me of the times I have spent both in India/Sri Lanka, and the American South West – both areas where colours are strong and brilliant, reflected from a bright sun and deep blue sky. I work principally in acrylics, although I also enjoy working in oils, especially for portraits. In some of the larger pieces, I like to incorporate my unique ‘ secret collage’ where I use hand prepared paper in subtle ways to enhance, and to add texture, value contrast, depth and shadow in a very discreet way.

 Portraits (commissions welcome)

Please read the following page for details of portrait commissions – I work in acrylics or oils, though oils will take a considerable time to dry. I love portrait painting, especially capturing the essence of the person or animal, the sparkle in the eye, and I will always want to know more about the person or animal, their character, and your memories of them. These are mostly personal ones as an example, ranging from highly realistic to more expressive, as you prefer:-

A black and white acrylic portrait on paper of my late partner, Roy. I tried to capture his kindness as well as his ‘cheeky chappie’ persona.
