"Bikers"(8"x16")



I took this picture on a recent trip to the Dominican Republic. It seems like everyone is riding bikes or motorcycles there. And it is unbelievable how many people can fit onto one small bike (3 or 4 is pretty common). Beautiful country with the friendliest people I've ever met anywhere.

Pick a vegetable and paint it from life. Direct painting. That was this week challenge from DPW.

The DPW Painting Challenge last week was "All about Me". So there it is my self portrait and like Carol said, it was frickin' hard.

"Connecting" (6"x8") oil on canvas panel

This one is for this week's DPW challenge. I had more trouble taking a proper photograph of it than I did in painting it. The colors are not exact because of the dark, rainy-weather lighting conditions I photographed in.

"Bowl of oranges"(5"x9")

This is my entry for last week's Daily Paintworks Challenge. It's the Color Challenge, I chose combination of complementary and split complementary(blue, purple, turquoise and orange)

This is my submission to this week DPW challange. This was the first time I painted using only three colors. I never expected that it would be so much fun.

"Summer walk"(12"x10")





It's about time I started bloging again. I can't believe it's been this long. First I had my Mum and sister visiting me for a couple months. Whenever I tried to paint, I felt guilty that I should be spending time with them. Then...Christmas fever, but finally everything is back to normal.
I signed up for the "Streetscapes in Oils" class at Visual Arts in Mississauga. The course is run by Dermot McKeown (who I have already mentioned here before) and he is great, that's why so many of us keep coming back. And this is my streetscape painting.
