I love portrait as a classic genre in painting. Sometimes in my style I paint portraits on commission. But frankly, I prefer to paint portraits of people I have never seen. Which I can imagine in my imagination and endow with features that interest me. Create a portrait as a generalised character, as a person living in an imaginary world. I must say that I do not often create male characters. Mostly my heroins are female. I understand them better and can talk more about them. But this character appeared by itself. A kind of bon vivant, a gentleman, the hero of the novels P.G. Wodehouse or Somerset Maugham. So, I never met him, I don’t know why he looks like this and what he does. Most likely that he is not busy with anything. He's just a cute and kind loafer. His dog is also cute and sweet. I painted this story trying to find the personal touch of a character through movement, gesture, color, clothes. This artwork was painted mainly with a brush in warm natural colours. As in most of my artworks, I used the style of the 20s-30s of the last century, which I feel very close to me both in spirit and in design. This painting is part of my 2019 Festive Promenade collection.
