Oil & Gold Leaf on Cotton
2015
I had finished one of my super-exciting portrait painting, were inspired by three artists, the dark color (or limited light source) of Rembrandt's self-portrait; the portrait painting technique of David Kassan; and, the earth tone palette and gold leaf application of Brad Kunkle. This painting was painted indirectly which took me a few months to complete.

Project : Minimalism Constellation

I had always obsessed with metal leaf; yet, I had a difficult time to apply them seamlessly on my paintings. Therefore, I decided to try it on simple work as a practice; and this is the reason inspired me to create minimalism constellation design/artwork, partly inspired by Fred Wessel's constellation series.

Lake George by John F. Kensett
Registered my membership at local public library recently; then, I was enjoying my weeks within books I borrowed. One of many art books I checked out is "The Hudson River School: American Landscape Painting". Hudson River School is not a strange name among those who study Fine Art or interested in classical art or america art. 

The Hudson River School, founded by an English American artist, Thomas Cole, was a mid-19th century American art movement embodied by a group of landscape painters, whose  aesthetic vision was influenced by romanticism, were known from their realistic and detailed portrayal of American landscape and wilderness.  ( reference: wikipedia )

Single Brown Egg
5"x7" Oil on Panel
My first completed and PASSED oil painting from my study in Sadie Valeri Atelier. It was painted by looking at the real egg placing under a warm yellow artificial light. This painting is the ticket to my next curriculum of 8"x10" still life painting. It's feels so good that I can finally do the 'real' painting after doing the fundamental course works and a lot of block-in. Here's the step-by-step of my indirect painting process.
