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

I hope you are you enjoying the holidays and Merry Christmas from Daniel Peci!

"Red shoes" 6x8 sitting female nude in a room oil painting a day


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.

"Fontaine de jeunesse" Female nude in a dress painting realism


A more archaic reference for this painting, using an old myth embodied in a female form, the power of myths is that they work at any point of history and even today, always open to interpretation, the image would be a visual stimulus to seek a personal meaning within or outside the context of the artwork.

"Zen #3" Japanese model female nude in daylight oil painting


6 x 8 inches Oil on Canvas panel
Fresh off the easel, this is a new intimist piece that I just painted, the warm daylight coming from the left travelling across all the shapes in the room, the subtle nuances of light always intrigue me.

"Summer house" 4x6 plein air female figure painting Available


4 x 6 inches Oil on Canvas panel
This one's really a small size for a figure but it has some cool flowing dynamics throughout the painting, when it's this small you gotta keep the space well thought out and tell a story with less, I'm not a big fan of overpainting things, its much harder to create a piece that's effective and works within its own limited frame...so in this respect, each brushstroke counts.

"Carrie" Female profile 5x7 Alla prima oil portrait painting


5 x 7 inches Oil on Canvas panel
Full profile here, I visualized this painting in my head first and where do I want the face to be exactly and decided further right, makes it more interesting instead of the usual middle of the canvas placement, it also points where she's looking in a more direct way.
sold

"Grace" 5x7 Seated female nude Original artwork for sale


5 x 7 inches Oil on Canvas panel
The angle was the key here which placed the figure towards the right, it anticipates movement and shows the sensibility of the female form more, sometimes certain poses give more hints about emotions or thoughts then others, you can never intellectualize all of this in the beginning since most of the problematics are resolved during the creative process, you can only try to visualize the result.

"The Swimmer" (Standing Female back) Modern Art oil painting for sale


5 x 7 inches Oil on Canvas panel

This female figure seen from behind was inspired by the 2012 Olympics in London, yes I watched some of it too!
There's a certain texture throughout the painting that suggests water and somehow found its place organically in the painting, originally it was just the initial turpentine wash but I kept its abstract quality all the way to the end since it served its purpose.

"Android" HTC - Smartphone still life painting realism


5 x 7 inches Oil on Canvas panel

Are we more connected today or disconnected?Does the device connect us only on a superficial level? Where's the line between the natural and the artificial? Did our brains go into stand by mode by being substituted by the android brain?...Are we more connected to the machine then to each other?

"Blank paper note #3" Contemporary still life art


6 x 6 inches Oil on Gallery wrapped canvas
sold 

So it's been a while since I did any still lives, I enjoy going back to a certain subject with a new take on it, its never the same, I had to deal with subtle variations in value here and explore the nuances of light falling over the subject, constant comparison is the key in getting things right in the painting process.

"Enchanted" reclining female nude painting sold


6 x 8 inches Oil on Gallery wrapped canvas
sold 

I tried taking a decent photo of this painting today but the weather wasn't cooperating, it was gloomy and rainy kinda so didn't get the proper daylight for a good shot, I'll try to take another one tomorrow if the conditions are right so you can get a truer representation of the original...

"July" Impressionist Female figure landscape oil painting


6 x 8 inches Oil on primed panel


In this particular scene I used the figure as an integrated part of the landscape, shapes merging in and out, colors reflecting each other, the warm light of July enveloping all forms, shadows quickly shifting their shape as the sun moves on.

"Zen #2" Japanese model Original art oil paintings


5 x 7 inches Oil on canvas panel
sold 

There's a preliminary drawing in charcoal that I did for this painting couple of months back so I decided to finally paint it, the drawings are not necessarily identical to the paintings and I'm not using them for tracing purposes, they both stand on their own, its for a better understanding of shapes particularly and the basic planes of light and shadow, the color comes organically.

"June" Impressionist Art female nude paintings


5 x 7 inches Oil on canvas panel
sold .

I'll break my 2 and a something months of blog silence with a new painting that I did yesterday, I have a good excuse for not posting more often since I was back home with my family so now I'll be 'compensating' for that time with new paintings, stay tuned!

"Unbound" 5x7 Male figure seen from behind Urban landscape painting

5 x 7 inches Oil on canvas panel
sold .

Man is unbound, yet the limitations imposed on him are growing bigger, social conditioning and strict rules of movement in a world where the man stopped following the given guidelines and got lost on the way, he ignored the signs and got cast away from the tribe.

"Zen" Asian female nude Original art 5x7 daily painting

5 x 7 inches Oil on canvas panel
sold
Since I did a couple of preliminary drawings with an asian model here's a painting of her, still a standing pose just a bit different from the charcoals.
