Nice Picture nr.3 Masculinity as I think how it should look
Meet the German actor Christian Redl (1948), whom I discovered in my all time favourite movie Lea. (Ivan Fila, 1996). Once I saw him, I knew his face represented everything the word masculinity meant to me. So when I promised you to find a picture of masculinity, making the choice wasn 't that hard.
Why does the face of this man touch me to the core? I know, but it 's so hard to explain to the outside world! But hey, let 's give it a try!
It has something to do with the combination of hardiness and doubt in his face. Like he doesn 't seem to know how to approach a certain situation. This bloke is tough, but it 's like women can see through him.
I 've tried to catch this expression in a painting, and it took me a whole year of trying. I didn 't succeed to my complete satisfaction, but I 'm satisfied for the time being.
