Antonio at work on a current commission

The artist started work on an portrait commissioned by the Spanish government in November 2008. The portrait of the former President of the Spanish Estate Council will be ready and unveiled in November 2009.

In the photos, Antonio is hard at work in his studio in Seville last July, finalizing the composition and choice of head and hands for the portrait in its final proportions. Before such process, and particularly for portraits, the artist likes to try different compositions and choices of details in small colour sketches.
