By immersing himself into his subject matter, Kassan is able to infuse his paiinting with life and realism.

Kassan’s influences are varied; citing Robert Henri and John Sloan as his primary influences on philosophy and subject matter. As for style and technique he cites Antonio Lopez Garcia, Mark Rothko, Franz Kline and Clyfford Still as influences as well.

Inspiring to watch you work on the I Pad better than most of us can paint with real paint. Your vibrant colors and greyed colors combine to make truly beautiful skin tones. Thank you for sharing this.

I like the top one best. There is more than just a beautiful woman to look at, very visually interesting. the second while well done... leaves me wanting more. Maybe just cuz I happened to see it in comparison to the first one? i dont know. Great work none the less.
