Amália Rodrigues , fadosinger

2016

Amália Rodrigues is an icon in the world of music . She made Portuguese fado worldwide known . In Portugal she was rewarded with many orders and awards and also in the rest of the world. This work was made in pastels and the original work had a black border around it, that I was not able to show here as EXTO does not alow this kind of things, as they see it as a "frame". This work is only one of 36 portraits of Portuguese fadosingers I made during 3 years

Celeste Rodrigues, fadosinger

2017

Celeste Rodrigues is 94 year at this moment ,when I portrayed her. She is the oldest still regularly singing fadosinger in Portugal and also the less known sister of Amália Rodrigues .

Artur Batalha ,portuguese fadosinger

2017

Meanwhile , in 4 years time , already my 43th portrait of a  portuguese fadosinger.  I still am not bored by painting them  and most of these people I know also personally ,which makes it even more interesting for myself to do them . In between my other paintings I keep coming back to paint one or two of them. Most of these portraits are now hanging at the homes of these portrayed singers in Lisbon...
