Here are a couple of landscapes from a series I did this week.  So, I am going through a cycle of a series of landscape, still life and portrait,  Doing them in a bunch is a good way to hone ones skill.



“Drink up, Buttercup…” :)

It is good that the cold temperature in the garage-studio keeps the fruits fresh.  However I threw away the strawberries and the Cranberry Juice (Sorry not Red Wine), it is too risky to eat perishable items.   I don’t like throwing away food, that is why I don’t paint fruits as often, as I should.   Nothing much to say in this setup.  This is a study in Red, Green and muted blue.

I will be posting a Video of the making of this Art shortly on instagram @artistfaisal




Just Add Tea…

This was a still life I set in my Garage-Studio.  It was very cold today, therefore, the sliced orange stayed fresh, but I had to run the space heater to stay toasty.  As you can see I am playing the Blue colored surrounding, with the Orange and Yellow objects (contrast).  The Blue is subdued while the Orange and Yellow Chroma is intense.  Also, I set up the composition into a triangular format, with the bottom left corner of the painting as the apex of the triangle and the objects growing in size as your eyes travel to the top right corner (sort of)  Enjoy!
