I sketch and draw my family members quite a bit. Although it has become less in the past few years. It is specially hard to get the children (teenage and adults) to pose now. Painting is a little more elaborate and requires setup and time from the model, therefore I get very little cooperation on that from family members. This painting was done from a photograph from 12 years ago, it will replace the charcoal drawing of my wife that hangs in our house.
Here is a Video Link of the making of the painting.
The title says it all :). The light source on the reference photo was not uni-directional and the contrast was not much, hence the challenge. Thank you for visiting. Do comment and Share and most of all Enjoy!
This is a heavily edited scene from a photograph on Pinterest of a Monastery. I enjoy landscape that have the potential of exaggerated aerial perspective, and this was no exception. Thank you for visiting and Enjoy!
Practicing light and shadows. So here it is another landscape. Enjoy
This scene is based on imagination, experience and some reference photos. Enjoy!
This painting was an exercise in background manipulation. This painting went through several iterations. I tried the background full of stacked houses first, then removed the background houses and replaced it with a large hill and then finally I settled for this one with few houses on one side and the wide expanse of the sky. Of course the star of this painting is the red boat. The orange/red contrast with the purple/blue shadow and water was a lot of fun.
Roosters have a facial appearance and a walk of a boxer. This one certainly did. The mean and determined look of this rooster, was priceless and I had to capture it. Enjoy!
I liked this image for the sun light raking across the trees and of course the aerial perspective created by the mountain. So here it is, Enjoy!
I liked the rimlight on this one. Loved painting this one. Oil on Linen panel.
I saw a photograph on Pinterest that was much bigger, with rivers and all. I was drawn to the golden evening sunlight on the mountains. I zoomed into the mountains and adjusted the shapes of the mountain a little to my taste. So here it is. Enjoy!
