Portrait Paintings by Roberto Castellini
Roberto has focused on painting portraits using the Sight-Size Method. These portraits, then, are life-sized and from live models, unless stated otherwise. Please click on an image to see an enlarged version with more details about the artwork. Contact Roberto if you would like a portrait painted for yourself or another.
"The realist, if he is an artist, will seek not to show us a banal photograph of life, but to give us a vision more complete, more seizing, more probing than reality itself."
(translated from French, Guy de Maupassant, Le Roman)
"Our favourite works of art seem to guide us to the truth of the human condition and, by presenting completed instances of human actions and passions, freed from the contingencies of everyday life, to show the worthwhileness of being human."
[Roger Scruton, "Beauty: A Very Short Introduction" Oxford Press]
