Philippe Pasqua. I loved this painting 'Portrait de Femme'. The overall scale was amazing, because the markings were so clear and seemed so simple when I was stood close to it. I've been researching this artist since coming back, and i find his oil paintings amazing, he's inspired me to go back into painting. Pasqua's style is expressive, abstract and spontaneous, his brush strokes are visible and the painting's appear to be in motion, bringing his portraits to life.
