Battered beauties painted by Dean McDowell

dean-mcdowell-intro
Dean McDowell is an artist from Northern Ireland who after a career in graphic design now dedicates his time to creating fine art. Dean’s focus is ‘the beauty of sorrow’, portrayed through expressive portraits of woman. What I enjoy most about Dean’s work is the expression of the portrayed women: although they often stare right at you there’s a sense of mystery you can’t ignore. The women tell stories with their eyes, something that’s very hard to capture on a photo let alone in paint! Maybe these are not your average beauty portraits, but hey, that’s not why you’re on Bleaq right? ;) Enjoy!
