pastel artist of the male figure, nudes and gay themes
Original pastel paintings of the male nude and gay themes by artist Michael Breyette. Michael’s art isn’t just homoerotic but tells stories and conveys emotions of gay life and varies from whimsical, fantasy to even the mundane of day to day living.

I knew this piece would be a challenge for a several reasons. It has a lot of different elements; the vendor booths, the variety of outfits, the barn, trees, and that their are four figures with faces that are rather small to work on. But mostly because it's a playful whimsical piece that tells it's story through expressions on the 'characters'. And having done so many faces over the years I know how the subtle tilt of a brow, shape of an eye or angle of a smile can easily change that expression, for example an approving smile can easily become and evil grin. So I just tried to channel my inner Norman Rockwell and dove in.
Welcome to the art of Michael Breyette.
Michael's pastel paintings capture the stunning beauty of the male form with warmth and sensitivity while never shying away from lustful eroticism.
