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.

Hello! As promised in my instagram, I'm sharing the downloadable link of my DIY planner index tabs, minimalism design, made for my passion planner. Before we get into the index tab, I would like to talk a little bit about how I feel about my new passion planner. It's not going to be a review really, just some comments.

Libra, Constellation Series Painting by Fred Wessel
Two major materials used in Fred Wessel's paintings always caught my curiosity, the gold leaf and egg tempera. I have never heard of painting with egg until I'm 20++. And till now, I am yet to try this medium. Gold leaf is always my top interest because the reflective effect on the leaf surface gives interesting interaction and dimension to the viewers in person. In the same time, it's decorative and beautiful.

It was a long journey took to complete this painting, started in Feb 2015 and officially completed in July 2015. There were some intermediate on-hold period while I have lost interest on her, have no idea to paint her or was busy with other pieces. I used indirect painting method but started with color layers, no grisaille underpainting. It took me a lot of time in correcting the light and shadows, the portrait and background as well. The consequences of no planning or color study before painting. A piece that takes long time to complete sure have a lot of progress photos. And it is. Beware of the following progress photos spam!!!

Love Spell by Yelena Bryksenkova
Who love art will collect arts, physically or digitally. Of course I would love to own more original or genuine prints of my favorite arts; however, I can't afford them. Thus, collecting their digital images if my preliminary way of art collection. Before we have pinterest, I keep the images in my computer. And now, I keep them in pinterest, all the drawings, paintings or sculptures that I like. I have decided to pick few artworks from my daily art finds, which share similar color palette or theme, and post them in my blog occasionally, perhaps weekly or monthly. Still deciding. 

So, please enjoy my art finds!
