A man’s portrait is much easier to make. So her is one in oil (6″x8″). Enjoy!
Painting is getting easier…
A Red Rose.

I have found this very baffling. I quite often see disagreements between women on what is a good looking man, and sometimes what I think is a good looking man, I am often told by my wife and daughters that they are OK looking? Here is a portrait in oil of a man that I think is fairly good looking… Also, it is much easier to paint and draw a man than a woman, that needs extra care to make their skin porcelain-like. (Reference photo was from Pinterest). Thank you for visiting and enjoy!

I am sure many women would find this gentleman attractive. I definitely found him a great subject to paint. Of course, the rings and the shaved head was what drew me to him. Thank you and Enjoy!
This is a quick copy (1hour) of a Sargent painting. I was practicing value and temperature more than the proportion in this one. I used mostly bristle brush on this one and then a soft brush, in the end, to smooth things out. It is always easier to paint men than women (and Children). Women (and Children) portraits require careful rendition and are not forgiving. Enjoy!
These are strange times we are living in. You would think I would be sketching and painting a lot, during the outbreak, but that has not been the case. Anyhow, enjoy!
Here is a still life. Another day another practice, what else would one do when you are cooped up in the house due to the Corona Virus? Ok! I need no excuse to paint/draw, I would have created this regardless. However, Stay Safe my friends. Social Distancing is the key.

An oil painting of the Grand Canyon. I love the play of shadows and light in a landscape and the reference photo (Pinterest) from which this painting was made had plenty of that.

This photo is courtesy of Pinterest (Thank you to the photographer, whoever you are). I Loved the whole “Mughl-e-Azam” vibe in this photograph. The one mistake I made was to do this on a 5″x7″. I had to resort to a tiny brush to get in the features and details. But anyway it was worth putting in the effort. Click the link below to view the video. Thank you and Enjoy!
