A portrait of a beauty. Oil painting on linen.
To paint men is practice, but women inspiration, and I stand by it 🙂
Ceramic, metal, glass and any hard shiny objects are my favorite things to paint in still life. I bought this red teapot set (along with another set) from a farmers market, it was to cute to be ignored. I Absolutely loved painting it.
An Ebony beauty in Oil. 5”x7” on Canvas. Some faces are meant to be painted and this full lived beauty was no exception. Enjoy.
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!
