The Art of Charles Sovek

Exhibit | "Colorful Characters"

Exhibit overview: You can be a little off if you paint an apple and nobody will be the wiser. You can be way off when you paint a tree or cloud and can probably still wiggle by. But If you're just a tad off when you paint a figure, it sticks out like a sore thumb. I made a living as a portrait painter for a few years and detested it! The money was great, but my creative juices were quickly overshadowed by the sheer craft required to get a good likeness. Happily, my landscapes and still lifes caught on and I was able to both pursue my artistic adventures and still pay the rent. But I continue to enjoy painting people. My way. Real people in real poses under interesting lighting conditions with only my intuition to tell me when the picture is complete.
