I can see through this magnificent painting that Samuel Silva has a great love for his work. This masterpiece will definitely trick a lot of spectators. Take note that this is not a photograph and what’s more interesting about this work is that it was created by Samuel using ball point pens. I really wish that I could have a chance to watch him draw a wonderful work of art like this.
About the Ocelot Portrait
This is a marvelous portrait drawn by Samuel Silva using ballpoint pens. According to Samuel, ballpoint pens must never be undervalued because they can be a very powerful medium. A ballpoint pen can be an incredible art tool. This medium is only as great as the painter who uses it.
