So I went a diving in to my old store of holiday pics from the bygone days when I went anywhere at all, and found some snapshots taken on a trip to Tioman Island.. Their beaches are the stuff of paradise, as are many of our beautiful seaside destinations here. The sand as fine as caster sugar and water so crystal clear, one could almost forget the degradation and pollution that would probably have shown up if not for the resorts careful maintenance.
Painted alla prima....
.... and another gesture drawing... :)
Hidy ho guys! So I got out and got some sun for once, which took all of 15 paces from my door.. haha!!
Now I kid, I'm not that bad with the sun thing (not that hard in sunny Malaysia!), this was however a first in a long time at doing an en plein air painting, and the weather sure was ideal!..
Loved how this gesture drawing turned out!
Thanks for dropping by guys!.. :)
p.s Pardon the French! Been trying to incorporate it more in to my everyday speech/writing to strengthen my grasp of the language.. :D
This little 4x4" was painted alla prima, using the minimal amount of strokes to express the subject matter..
First in a series of travel pieces, I snapped the reference picture for this piece while traveling through one of the rural parts of India..
Thanks for the visit!.. :)
The concept of time & space has always fascinated me and so age old philosophies and scientific theories on the subject have been an almost constant reading companion and theme in my work for many years... Although many of my works have elements of this idea melded in with other varying contexts, this I feel is the first piece that is completely focused on the concept of time alone...
Hi there, I went a digging today among some of my old travel pics and found one I took of this world heritage treasure.. Like many, Egyptology has always intrigued me and painting the beauty of these historic monuments is completely captivating..
Medium: Watercolour on Watercolour Paper
Size: 3.5 x 2.5 Inches
This is actually my second attempt at this image, taking lessons learnt from the first to create this little watercolour.. :)
Thanks for the visit!.. :)
Just put up this piece on 'Daily Paintworks'!.. One of my rarer conceptual ACEO's, this particular piece was painted on copper mounted on primed linenboard.
'Timeless Chaos' ACEO
Medium: Oil on Copper Mounted on Primed Thin Linen on Thin Wood
Size: 2.5 x 3.5 Inches
Deriving inspiration from philosophical & scientific theories of time and space,this piece seeks to render and merge both dynamical systems theory & relativity with zen philosophy...
Featured is a classic Ford Model T, one of many reoccurring subjects used in my conceptual work..
Thanks for the Visit!.. :)
