Portrait of a young man - sidelit oil painting

sidelit male portrait

Here’s a new portrait sketch that’s fresh off the easel, kept it loose with the brushwork and it also came out as a nice color study, the painting is brighter and has even more color when seen in person.

"Granny Smith apple" 6x6 oil on canvas


There’s a quiet synergy at work between the greens of the apple and dark grey/black background resulting in a calm meditative effect, especially with the painted subject being ‘self reflective’.

"Portrait of a young man with a beard" 8x10 oil on panel

A glimpse into the work process, this is the beginning stage where I established the major values on the face, this way I can judge correctly the rest of the shapes and values, its one way to start a painting and every painting is different and so is the start, but I usually adjust the beginning according to the given subject and circumstances.

Limited Edition Prints by Daniel Peci

"Green room" 
I started doing prints of some of my paintings, going through the selection process of images right now, they will be edition of 20, signed and numbered.

For now I'll be printing them at a standard size of 8.5x11 inches, I might decide to go larger in near future, the quality and color is very true to the originals,

"Antique door"
They are printed on a card stock paper, matte finish, that's how I like them, if you wanna see which prints are currently available via auction please

Merry Christmas

In the vein of the Christmas season I decided to list a bunch of different sketches, drawings and small oil paintings for sale, they are all listed on a seven day auction with a Really low starting bid, I thought its a good idea to clean out the studio so I can start some new ones in the upcoming year

The body seated yet turning, unrest, thoughts passing through, static yet moving, confined into space, daylight travels across the room, introspective shadows reveal forms...

"Nonchalant" 6x6 inches Female portrait girl oil on canvas

If you were following my postings on my other blog A drawing a day, you'll notice that I did a preliminary drawing for this painting, now that doesn't mean that I follow the outlines of the drawing to create the painting, its just to give me a better idea how to visualize the painting before I start, the whole process then unfolds spontaneously and it can go in any direction.
