Sketches and more sketches

October 16, 2013 by | Comments Off on Sketches and more sketches

sketch-cutSo this time it’s going to be a post about sketches. Sometimes you notice some artists have a pretty different sketching style from their final work, so I personally like looking at different artist’s sketches.

I read recently on some magazine about how great masters of old did lots of monumental looking sketches, and in fact they look like they were drawn in life-size, but in actuality, the size of the sketches are really small. or something like that.

Water-lightsSo I’ve been working on a couple of oil paintings simultaneously. They don’t look good yet, so you know, I can’t upload them yet :P

But then again, in between the oils, I’ve managed to squeeze in couple sumi/water combo and a digital painting experiment. Digital painting is something I haven’t done much, and maybe in the past did one or two sporadically here and there. Now I think I’m going to try to get into it more often.

I don’t really know how to paint what I want yet, but for now, I want to experiment on couple concepts, you know, tight, fast, soft, transparent, such and such, etc.  Continue Reading →

fem-shepard-courage-thmb Here are some paintings I did today in between oil paintings.

Pick Up Lights Oil Version

January 14, 2013 by | Comments Off on Pick Up Lights Oil Version

So I’ve been working on some Oils and some usual sumi/watercolor combo. Looks like I have to complete more than 10 oils in a month. THAT will be very busy. I will paint some sumi/water combo here and there to refresh my brush hand though :)

I will upload as they complete.

Other than that, the New Years has come, and I forgot to paint a snake… Yes, I did. I should do a series of paintings for the Chinese Zodiak, so every year I can just whip them up and make a New Years card. Yeah..  Continue Reading →
