Henk Jacques Fernandes: Portraiture

Henk Jacques Fernandes: Portraiture

Portraitist, architectural painter and art instructor Henk Jacques Fernandes has lived and worked in Aruba, Venezuela, and the Netherlands. His restrained use of brush-strokes to create vivid, lively faces reminds me of Dutch Master Frans Hals’ work. I discovered Henk Fernandes’  beautiful paintings when I saw my website linked on his page, Atelier Fernandes (thank you very much, Mr. Fernandes).
