Oil portraits 2021

Do you remember the oil paint smell! It’s so good! So I took the paints out and felt like painting, I started with a couple of landscapes, and then a couple of rush portraits. You need to paint sometimes or you will forget.

My sister is sometimes making photoshoots for creative purposes, so I lent some portrait photos from her shoots for reference with her permission. It’s pretty hard to find serious portrait references.

The first portrait started out as a realistic one but then I painted over it and made it into a blue vampire.

Photograph and model:

The second portrait from this month, is another model from my sisters photoshoots.

Abstract raven paintings (Ink art)

My eye started twitching from joy, I saw a jackdaw looking for food and it found a bug, picked it up and went to a nearby puddle to wash it before eating. What a neat little dinosaur.

Had some fun too,  painting smoky ravens is always a great feeling. Splash splash! I added four new artworks on paper.

Get some ink and get to painting!

Early morning (landscape painting)

Acrylic painting on canvas, about 12 x 12 inches (30 x 30 cm).

Early morning Southern Estonian landscape. I was trying to think of a place that I’d love to walk into in the morning and remember all of the elements that give out a sense of  calm.
