Reflections


SOLD

I wanted to combine the static sitting pose of the old man with the constantly moving reflections of the day that bounce off the various types of surfaces and make abstract patterns of light and value.

Auction for this painting starts @ 8Pm Pacific Time.

No, this is not an actual paint tube that the famous painter Rembrandt used, "Rembrandt" is the brandname of this oil color, its a cadmium red purple and obviously it has been used, not in this painting though, only as a still life prop:)

"Stairway/Alleyscape #2" 5"x7" Oil on Canvas Panel


Painting Urban Landscapes is a specific experience, not like painting usual landscape since you can feel the air and aroma of the city, I was painting this one on location in L.A. alley trying to follow the constantly moving shadows from the houses and small buildings, their shape and lenght is changing according to the sun's movement making my job much harder, this scene is a close up of an alley that connects one of the streets in L.A.

Daily Drawings Blog

I've decided to put all of my drawings on a separate blog where I will post charcoal and pastel drawings, sketches or any works on paper and I will leave this Daily Paintings Blog only for Oil Paintings.I think it's better for them to be differentiated from each other as you can see the continuity of my work better, I've started a new series of still lives in Oil and you'll get a chance to see the first one very soon.You can go to my Daily Drawings here or through the link on the right side of the page.

"Red Plum and Sake Bottle" 5" x 7" Oil on Canvas on Panel

I like how the strong red color of the plum communicates with the white bottle and the design on it, making it the focal point of the composition, as always, it was painted from life, I was tempted to eat the plum many times while painting but I had to control myself since by doing that a valuable prop will be gone.

Self Portrait


SOLD
"Self Portrait" 6.5" x 8.5" Pastel on "Canson" drawing paper, Varnished
Auction starts @ 7.30Pm Pacific Time.
Ok...so doing a self portrait with soft pastels is not that easy, especially when the size is small and you are trying to do some details with the edge of the pastels, whats even worse the pastel itself crumbles in your hand and dissapears in small pieces of dust, so this is the result of my struggle with this medium and yes I was looking at myself in a mirror, I hate photos (especially Vacation photos).
