The Rock Musician

Patrick Fleischer

It might seem a bit odd that I am suddenly painting something totally different again, after just having done the wedding pictures which were a new subject and a new approach for me.
But I got a commission for two portraits this weekend and this is one of them.
I must admit that this kind of subject seems much easier to me than the others and I now even more admire the painters who paint the scenes with people in them on this small scale! It's soooo difficult.

He definitely looks like a rock star! I think it's the eyes. Great work, Liza.

a friend from Berlin recommended me your work, and I can see what he is on about.
Very strong Liza, especially the portraits, this one remains me of Oren Lavie, just with shorter hair, fantastic work Liza !

Hi everybody,
thank you very much for your encouraging comments!
Ian, thanks for the tip with Oren Lavie - I'll listen into that as soon as I get round to it.
