So I did a couple of sumi/watercolor combo once again for the start of the fall season. I’m working on couple of serious oil paintings right now, so I might not be able to paint watercolor for a while unless I have a happy urge to paint with water.
Fall instantly translates into Halloween and I am serious I didn’t even remember that we are gonna go through that all over again until last month when stores started displaying the merchandise. Continue Reading →
So I couldn’t resist in the end. One for the Dragonborn of Skyrim.
I usually never paint fictional/non-fiction characters from books, games, or movies, but I don’t know why this time I was moved to paint one.

Hmm, what more to say than that..?
Hopefully more Ninja’s to come…For now, here we are: Continue Reading →
I feel like I’ve painted this Samurai many times. Even though I’ve never painted his face in particular, I feel like I might know what sort of samurai he might be. I’ll see if I paint more of him…
I just realized I really really enjoy the inking process using the sumi ink. Fast and rough, even better. True, many times lines end up too strong or too weak, not even straight, but that’s all part of fun. :)
