Francisco Centofanti Paintings
I believe in using traditional techniques to convey people and their surroundings in a modern way. I was trained to study nature accurately and this is an essential element in all my portraits. At the same time, I think it is important to combine observational skills with an approach to understand and capture the sitter's personality.
