18¼" x 11½" (46 cm x 29 cm) pastel on pastel paper
Andrea is a friend via Facebook who lives in Italy. He and a partner recently had sent me a pic of themselves re-enacting my painting "Tie the Knot". So taking it to the next step it seemed fitting to do a painting of him. I did this painting from a camera phone pic he had up on his Facebook page. I needed to crop out a lot to bring focus and also did some altering of the background. The tough part was getting the rendering of the face, since by the time I enlarged it, it was very pixelated.
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.
This website contains fine art depictions of male nudity, gay themes, and men in sensual and romantic situations. Do not enter if you choose to be offended by this subject matter.
Otherwise, if you appreciate the male form in all its glory, come on inside and enjoy!
