Favela Carioca by Rssfim Favela Carioca by Rssfim
I haven't used any image as reference, but this is a typical slum in Rio de Janeiro, the so famous favelas. More than a bunch of poor people living together in a high density zone with narrow alleys, this kind of community have cultural and social aspects that influence our way of living in Rio. It's also the cradle of Samba.

Actually I did this as a study for an oil painting commission. I'm glad with the result. Let's see how the oil painting is gonna look like...

Watercolour on paper.

That is really amazing. Great colors, excellent composition, and I really like how you've abstracted the figures. Great use of foreground, middle ground, and background to show the scale.

Thank you very much! I like the way you described the deviation compositon's elements. It's cool when someone analyses our method of creation! :)

My regards!!
