|El Terror ( 40 x 50 cm, acrylic paint on canvas, year created: 2013)|
This is a portrait of my partner Asko. The name for the painting started out as a joke, but somehow the name got stuck to the painting, so "El Terror" it is.
I listened to a lot of "western" music while painting this. Songs like "Man with the Harmonica" and the whole soundtrack of the game "Red Dead Redemption" (haven't played the game myself, but I've watched "El Terror" here play it ;) ).I'm happy how this painting turned out...especially since painting men is not my strength.
