The 90’s Cartoon name kept popping in my head as I was painting this. For those who don’t know, the animal in the painting is a Moose (deer family) and is found in North America. I got the picture from Pinterest and loved the colors in the photograph, which I pushed to contrast blue with orange.
(6″x8″ in oil) Enjoy!
What is better than Contemplating over Coffee? Contemplating over Tea.. :). The reference photo was from Pinterest that I modified to meet my artistic taste. (Oil 8″x10″ on panel) Enjoy!
Here is a rugged tribesman, done in a painterly style. (Ref: Pinterest) Enjoy!

Lately the weather in Dallas-Fortworth areas has been awesome. So I have gone out to paint twice. It is exhilarating and satisfying at the same time. The whole painting should typically be wrapped up within a few hours, otherwise the light changes a lot and pretty much you have to paint from memory (or a thumbnail drawing, if you have done one).
I have painted one red head before and a few portraits of Africans, but have not posted them anywhere I remember. So here is a sort of a debut.

Grapes are interesting to paint, as they have a little bit of transmitted light that makes them glow. This is done from various reference photos (pinterest) and some imagination
Nothing beats an Indo-Pak bride when it comes to bridal attire. Here is a tribute to the Indo-Pak culture. (Ref: Pinterest)
