I feel I have come a long way in landscape painting. I have a good handle on aerial perspective now. of course the best part of painting is you are forever a student and that is beautiful.
I have not done still life in a while and I find flowers challenging. So I signed up for an online course with Jared Brady. This course clicked with me and here are the results. There is always room for improvement. I am finding my work more painterly and the effort is less.
Here is a mixture of my latest paintings. I feel I still have some improvement to make on brushwork. Also, I feel I have made some breakthroughs in Still Life, Landscape and portraiture in the past few months, based on tutorials I have watched. Enjoy.
The beauty of landscape comes from aerial perspective. Here are some more paintings showing that.
I am getting better at portraiture in oil, and here it is. Hopefully you guys enjoy viewing it as much as I did making it. Thanks.
As with any learning. There are moments when you understand something better and deeper. This time it was aerial perspective and atmosphere.
I was doodling on a Post-It note when I thought of creating a series of Post-It Note portraits. All that was used was a mechanical pencil, an eraser and a Post-It note pad, Simple!. I am starting my first sketch with the portrait of the lovely and talented Pakistani Actress Sarah Khan.
How do you feed an obsession? By doing more of it of course. Here are a series of 3”x3.5” landscape.
Here is a Zoomed-in View of the paintings. The weave of the linen is showing through. I have tired to remove them a little.
So, the ideas was to play with aerial perspective and texture of landscapes.
What attracted me to this scene was how the background mountain loomed over and dwarfed the foreground mountain, making the foreground mountain look like a mole hill. I loved the drama. Enjoy!
