Tempera portrait - Renso Castaneda

"This is the second portrait with tempera; it was easier for me to master the material, which is difficult due to the fast drying and the difficulty of achieving a smooth finish, which I like in my work.

The Romanian painter was born on 23 January 1954, in Silindia commune, in Arad. He gratuated from the Faculty of Visual Arts at the Art University of Oradea, starting with painting in 1974.
