Portrait of Mr. George Lengvari, by Paul Rupert

Take a look at this work. Its one of Paul Rupert's many dynamic works, done with his palette knife. For most of us, palette knife art is characterized by the thickness of the paint which has been applied to canvas. But not so with Paul Rupert's work.

The first thing I found myself doing was looking at the softness and delicacy of Paul's application of paint on the subject's coat. Run your eyes over the subject's skin and notice Paul's ability to create blemishes, highlights, age marks and creases. Now, look at the subject's shirt and tie and I am sure you will marvel as I have, at Paul's control in creating exact lines with his knife. About all I can say is..."This is most impressive painting."
