Walking around the cat show and vendor's area, I came across
the fabulous paintings of Richard Ancheta. He works in oils, and his paintings are truly wonderful.

Beautiful, vibrant, rich colours! This is an artist who understands and knows how to use colour!



Portraiture and figurative are the genres of art painting, the highest level of technical drawings. Rendering in a precise process of sketches to capture the models likeness, measurements and proportions are required to mold in different tones and values of the model.

Drawing the figure, the head and face, the difficulty of anatomies are keenly observed. The delicate study of eyes, nose, lips, ears and facial features are detailed.

Classical Oil Portraits are rendered in multiple layers of painting, the chiaroscuro technique is define to reinvent opacity and glazing textures, forming the tangible planes of the delicate surface of the face and figures. With the density of light bathing, the treatment of casting shade and shadows are complementary that gives its full life effects.



" I like a painting of sun, it's a good luck for my business... I like seascapes,
with blue skies, high mountains and astonishing waterfalls...
and you will paint it as a mural background in my salon..."

" I told to my client,
in the count of seven,
my magic brush will reveal your wish!!! "
