Still Life Oil Painting progress



I like to introduce you to a new oil painting.  Still Life in Oils 12” by 12”  and for the obvious playing with the background which is painted simultaneously with the still life, aiming for texture and a good color scheme letting it rest or stepping back .   

Working from photographs, but ahh que mas da, tengo que jugar con lo que esta a mi alcance en el momento si al verlo te hace feliz, lo demas no importa~

ACEO Oil Painting


Noticed how is taking form, but still not satisfied it has a long way to go in my opinion, letting it dry, and continue working with others.

Original oil painting sketch roses


Titled “timid”


Today a beautiful day and sunny! this bouquet of roses flowers from my neighbors yard. Hard to resist a decision had to be made.  Sketched under the sun, noticed they are huge like peonias* but with less petals…

The beautiful pink colors still can’t be mimic by paint. Holding the brush straight as if a charcoal and giving a straight forward response with the brush to mimic form… and there you have it!

The painting measures about 7” by 8”  drying happily at the moment .

This is the song that inspired the process… hope you enjoy!

remember to continue creating!

Oil painting male nude sketch

It's being a Great Monday the weather is changing with a beautiful cool breeze, the leaves changing colors a true inspiration for any artist! it is the time where many of us drag our palettes out and about, stuffing zip lock bags and getting our outdoor gear together and that includes a hat, getting ready for our expedition, let's not forget off spray! not necessarily in that order, that's how it goes for mua at least.

But landscapes a side here is why and the main reason for this post, my next miniature reproduction oil painting male nude on a standing pose. It is still to early to talk about colors at this point and or any other technique.  I'm finding it harder to deal with the bristle since is not natural and my color palette is getting limited, noticed that? I need more paint!. Any ways on the mean time,concentrating in being able to finish  as calm as possible as long my health permits and keep the same or similar colors to the original.

Oil painting two women


“on the Atsion lake”


Say yes to random! see what else is there in your reference photos?  There is a vast potential for more than just one painting in one single photo, action painting is a way of keeping your mind, fresh and full of ideas. 

For this painting Anders Zorn came back to mind a master in completing he's figures with a limited palette  and whom I’ve had the pleasure to study for the past several years. The randomness in action of  must of he’s nudes figures gave me the zing to try this one out, abstracting as much as possible every trace of detail.
