Fashion Study

This is part of a series of paintings focused on the investigative study of the human body. This painting goes back to my fashion roots rather than my more traditional portrait paintings.


  1. fashion is art and your painting is well fashioned

  2. Lovely! I do Digital Visual Art but enjoy a good painting done traditionally! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi, I really like your portrait work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

    I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

    I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

    I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

    If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

    A Patchwork Of Flesh
    45 Silversea Drive
    Westcliff on Sea
    SS0 9XD
    United Kingdom

    Each card I receive will be uploaded at http://apatchworkofflesh.blogspot.com/ to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

  8. My name is Yadyra Gonzalez. Im a sophomore. Im 16 years old. I love to draw and paint and mostly anything that has to do with art. Im doing a project for my art class, and i have to find a painting that i like and comment on it.

    The movement Jose Maria Castillo used on his painting is impressionism. The media he used is oil on canvas. The special areas where he used impressionism are the eyes, around the eyes, in the hair and neck. The use of line is on the necklace. The use of shape is around the eye. The use of value is in the blouse. The use of form is in the faces. the use of texture is oil canvas. The use of contrast is in the hair. The use of space is in the shoulders. The use of patterns is used in the necklace on the girl. The use of balance is the dark top right side corner of the painting.

    I like your painting because it captured my attention. It looks like its expressing some feelings. This is my blogger account. Check out my art projects!

  9. I really enjoy this piece. The expressions of the figures and their attire give this piece a modern feel while the medium and form of the painting give it a traditional feel. I love when concepts like this meet.

  10. Really a meaningful pic... It's worth to share....
