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!
The possibilities with one simple orange, as a still life, is numerous. One can do many things with the arrangement of the peel to come up with various compositions. I also used this to practice a live presentation/demo on Instagram Live. I had completed most of the painting and then decided to put the final touches on live video. I am planning to do a simple demo tutorial soon on Instagram Live. After all the best way to learn is through teaching. Enjoy!
Here are a couple of landscapes and a portrait. Nothing much to tell. One must paint often and practice with a purpose. Thank you for viewing. Enjoy.
