"Innocence" 6x6 female nude oil painting

New 6x6 painting for the New 17, more ethereal and symbolic piece that's open to interpretation, not everything should be explained by the artist, some things should be left to the viewer to decide. Also, more palette knife work then usual for textural effect, especially in the background, This one is available for purchase through my online store here

"Eye study" small daily oil painting on paper

 Been busy lately working on corporate illustrations for an Ad campaign and just got back from a trip to Europe but slowly moving back into painting mode and looking to expand some ideas on the canvas. I usually 'test' them into a drawing first but sometimes its more exciting to go straight into paint.

Seated male nude figure study

Male figure in a contemplative pose, painting on paper reduces the drying time significantly and also looks like acrylic in the end, but that changes with the final layer of damar varnish when the original gloss of the oil comes back to life.

a handful of them on a really low starting bid auction, they are dated differently and you can see variations in the style too,

 some of the paintings are more elaborate and took some time to finish, some are quickly resolved sketches,

reasonable best offers would be accepted.

"Jon Snow" watercolor portrait painting

It's been years since I've done any watercolors, luckily I found this old stash of watercolor tubes that was collecting dust, as a result of that - here's a portrait of Snow from Game of Thrones.

"Afternoon" female figure en plein air landscape

Color and light of the day, changing each second, objects and subjects reflecting each other, energies spiraling up and down, movement of people bypassing without ever interacting.

Male portrait 6x9 oil on paper

Second oil sketch from the same day, looks more like its been done with acrylics rather then oil because of the paper's quick absorbing properties, also the values look lighter then actual, the painting will get the proper finished look once a final layer of varnish is been applied.

"Girl with a dragon tattoo" female nude painting

Painted this one last night on a prepared paper, it responds differently then the canvas and the oil dries quicker, forces me to do more deliberate brushstrokes that gonna stay permanently on the surface, less thinking is more action.
