I am Hidalgo
My name is Humberto Hidalgo and I am a portrait oil painter of Cuban and Mexican heritage. I live with my beloved wife and 2 daughters, and I work from my studio in Los Angeles California. I am a self-taught oil painter with a passion for intricate detail and replicating the changing effect of light on my subjects. I enjoy painting "Alla prima", but am fascinated with the Old Dutch Masters technique also known as the Flemish 7 layer technique (an example of this is "Girl with a Pearl Earing"). I am working to improve my technique until my paintings are as complex as that of "John Singer Sargent". Accepting both small and large-scale commissions, I work with the highest quality oil pigments on the highest quality archival support with the goal of my paintings lasting through time. Thank you for visiting my portfolio.
