Mise en scène haute en couleurs, Michel …
L’imagination bat son plein et « el Chico » s‘amuse bien comme modèle …
°-[o
La version sépia lui donne un petit côté guérilleros en cavale …
Bonne fin de semaine …
Antonio

Bonjour michel

I like the intense colors, & warm cold opposition between the red & blue. Tres bon travail!

He looks trapped by that colourful curtain... It's the surprised look on his face that really gives us that feeling.
Cool pp work.

Ana

Salut Michel,
nice and colourful picture indeed. Even the sepia is cool. I like Serge's expression very much.
Nino

Toujours un travail bien fait et original, pour moi ce sera la version sepia, je la trouve davantage mystérieuse et comme l'a écrit Saiz, le coté guérilleros est pas mal intéressant.

Salut Michel! Une autre oeuvre très graphique! J'aime bien les deux versions. La sepia fait plus dessin encore, mais celle-ci est plus joyeuse et plus ''été''.

Hi Michael.
good portrait. good postprocesing product. i buy it.
colours are best!
regards, lukasz

C'est un rideau de salle de bain!? C'est fou ce que ça me rappelle un filet.
Ça me rappelle l'histoire de pecheur pauvre qui allait à la plage tout les matins lancé son filet pour subsister avec un peu de poisson. La mer n'était pas généreuse ces temps ci. Un jour son filet était bien lourd (Aucun lien avec Serge. C'est l'histoire. Il n'est pas gros bon!) Le vieux pêcheur tire de toute ses force et à sa surprise il en ressort une vieille lampe. Il la frotte un peu pour la nettoyer de ses saletées marines... Un grand nuage de fumée en sort et notre pècheur se retrouve devant un Génis...

Je ne vais pas tout retranscrire l'hisoire quand-même :o) Je laisse aller ton imagination ;o)

Cliché très évocateur. C'était une expérience toute simple sans doute comparé a tes trucs au verre martelé, mais le résultat est tout aussi intéressant!

Hi Michel,
Nice work. Serge's expression is really cute. Alhtough, I can't tell if it's fear or awe that he is expressing from the "barrier." The shower curtain adds nice texture, and your pp work very nice colors. I prefer this to the sepia version. Well done!
Richard

Hello Michel...As always I have said, you have a real style... I do like your colourful style... Excellent work... Thank you for sharing...

Can

Pour moi, c'est la version couleur! Même si le sépia n'est pas mauvais non plus. Serge est un excellent modèle et c'est bien d'en profiter. Le travail avec le rideau donne un aspect tout à fait unique. Beau travail!

Oh.. there it is, the party boy!!
Love this strong and vibrant colors Michel, they really turn the composition into a living one..
Beautiful!!
Marisa

Quelle idée originale que de faire ce portrait à travers un rideau de douche; il fallait y penser. J'aime mieux la version couleur (malgré que la sépia a un petit quelque chose qui me plaît bien aussi!). Tu as su capturé toute une expression de surprise sur le visage de Serge. On dirait un peu qu'il est en prison. Bravo!

Cool image! Looks like an old movie shot from the 60s. The colours and texture give that old movie poster look too.

Serge looks much more approachable here that in the "tough guy" shot. You have a unique and distinct style - "abstract realism ?" the photo, expression, colours and creativty are all nicely done. TFS, Sam

1 word: excellent

Great shot - it looks like he's caught in a fishing net - I like the colours too :)

Michel like always you have ideas who are worth it.
Contrast of colors is fantastic & the eyes of Serge is was caught my attention.
Salut
Ros

I love it, like a new 'digi-Art'? Thanx,M.(*_*)

Tres belle prise Michel, j'aime bien son expression. Le jeu des couleurs et des ombres est superbe. Tres bien fait!

Hi Michel; great performance here; a Hitchkock scene just before the murder attacks.
I wonder why somebody is behind a bathroomcurtain with clothes on.
This must be a setup.
Nice reult, great colours and the shapes of the curtain makes Serge really falling on my desk.
Thanks,
Huub

ihihih this makes me smile :-) it's so nice to have you, your creativity and your sense of humor back!

well done as ever to you and to Serge!

hugs,
Ayda

Is he trapped inside the shower, or staring in from outside? Whichever it may be, there's a world of amazement in his eyes. Great pp work.

Nice one Michel,
the expression on his face is the best of it :))
Nice PP and saturated colours work great.
Veru creative indeed.
Well doen!
take care, Stef

belle composition de EL CHICO!
jolie travail de PP!
bye....tanbinh.

Bonjour Michel
Un style qui se reconnait, un jeu de couleurs heureux et bien dosés, la physionomie de serge est parlante, c'est tout simplement merveilleux.
amitiés
