I consider myself as an artist belonging to the group of new realists where the human being is looked upon in a new light and painted strongly figurative. The meaning of Clair Obscure, in Italian chiaroscuro, is light in the darkness. Less light, less color. That is some of the reasons why I work with plain and few earth colors and very seldom part from that rule unless it is absolutely necessary. I've never forgot that unwritten direction and it was useable in oil, watercolor and charcoal as well. One of them was: "Don't be too tough with you pencil when you draw. Not too much information when you catch the line. Do not underestimate your audience".
