Beautiful Woman presents a series of paintings with the faces of women from countries such as Colombia, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Kenya and the United States.
Each piece was created with the impasto technique: impasto brushwork is very heavy with thick paint. The mixture of colors may be complete or partial: a mixture of uniform color, thoroughly mixed.
So that colors remain independent but are together visually in the same stroke. This creates a lively feel, with striated colors to apply the thick brushstrokes. The portrait is a difficult mode for a painter always a challenge.
Belinda succeeds in translating its knowledge of aesthetics, with the beauty of melancholy and sad his brushwork is broad and has the configuration from within looming up an exterior that is resounding, the result is outstanding.
