Amber's backside (standing nude)

Did some more work on this five by seven, when I started it I ran out of ivory black, so it never got dark enough which is essential for a tonal painting like this, it came to the full value range on the second pass.

Bowl of apples and an orange

This as an older small still life that I just re-touched, what I usually do is add a layer of linseed oil all over the dried painting and bring life and color to an old painting, some parts stay untouched and some are completely re-painted.

Blue bottle Gardenia 5x7 still life

 Lately I've been paying more attention to the selection of objects for a still life and especially their color and how they can compliment each other in the composition, I try to visualize it in my mind first before even setting it up, then I try to recreate that concept the best way I can.

New etsy shop for small figurative & nude oil paintings

I thought it might be a good idea to try Etsy as an outlet for my smaller works as its already been established as a global marketplace (who would’ve thought that a website named “Etsy” would get so big), their site’s bit slow to response but their back end analytics look pretty good, anyhow I’ve added a few pieces for starters at very affordable prices and be probably adding more along the way, you can access the shop by following this link.
