el gallero pintura oleo

El gallero

“El gallero” is a painting in Oil on Canvas in which I represent the task of raising roosters, a long tradition in the dominican country, embodied in the figure of an elderly person who faces the difficulties and needs of his circumstance in this part of life.

For this artwork I took several references and models, which allowed me to sketch the figure, achieving a foreshortening with a much more dynamic composition to incorporate the geometric elements. The range of tones in Sepias and ocher harmonizes with the earthy and gray tones of the background.
