Between the lines and Leonardo




Miniature 2.5” by 3.5”

Awesome week a head, presented the new art prints, and for the first time did a series of sketches with just ink.

This one is a very special one, from Leonardo Da vinci  who’s amazing skill is incomparable. Took note at the master interesting miniature sketches…

Oil painting figure nude




Size is 8” by 10”  Oil on canvas panel

The bristle is done away with… and now  sit and stare, analyze it, and come to conclusions, mind feels uneasy with it, but then again never satisfied, it was worth the wait I say, it is worth to not only do this painting in a small scale, but in a bigger size with all it’s details the same pose, perhaps a different model, now, my own version, how that sounds? 

I’ve taken my liberties with this one, and applied less shadows, change the hands position, less details on the mouth didn’t paid no mind to the “apple” rather make it an type of thing, or perhaps an pomegranate. Took note “emphasis” on her satisfied self, that the original artist wanted to convey, she seems like nothing is going to happen, innocent and cynical, that is just me..too much thinking.

Now to get more materials, to study my sketches, and continue…. to paint.

Oil painting figure portrait




Oil painting Repro 8” by 10” painting progress…


Painting is passion, an obsession, rewarding feeling like no other, there's a moment before painting the hearts accelerates like expecting a great reward, the urges of picking up the brush and exhaust it all…   To give it all and everything, until… nothing matters, but the selfish desire of completing...

Early quiet morning all  you can hear is that sound, the brush makes in to the canvas…silent of the walls, coldness in your hands.  The bristles making that sound, again, grasp…,pick.., scrub…and with each stroke, your head tilts,  you realize this is passion your obsession,  you are working so hard for, the love of  Art.
