paintings for your living room. This is the first out of 5 paintings, titled The Tough Guy Collection

Exciting new paintings for your living room

Follow Theo's journey of creating 5 oil paintings in 5 weeks

Considering that Theo usually takes around two months to finish an oil painting, this is a tough target. The goal is to create five original oil paintings, all sharing a unique cinematic style. To have a chance of meeting the target Theo decided to reduce the size of each artwork and to cut down on detail in the painting, without compromising his unique style.

We are calling the paintings.... The Touch Guy Collection, a  collection of 5 original oil paintings that fit well with Theo's familiar theme of Film Noir artwork.

Painting number one is complete, we even had some time to put it into a complimenting frame. Here it is...

The Reporter is the final painting in the set of The Tough Guys, a collection of five paintings in an art noir style. 
The strong contrast of dark and light, the heavy rainfall, and the attire of the characters sit well with Theo's familiar Film Noir style genre. The Reporter, or perhaps we should we call it The Downpour, differs from the first four paintings as it it less photorealistic and leans more towards an abstract painting. 

We enjoyed the challenge, but creating the five paintings did take a little longer than anticipated. No doubt, Theo will enjoy a well deserved rest....
