Oil paintings

Now I’ve been working for a year, what have I gotten done on oil paint? Not as much as I had hoped, but still, something I have learned: The importance of texture. The totality of the picture. That I have passion for what I paint. And not to be afraid of trying something new.

Under, three images I am working on. Will update as soon as I can.

This will be a painting titled: Daphne. The myth: Daphne was a beautiful nymph, but she spurned all love from men. Apollo, the sun-god fell in love with her, and chased her, but she asked to become a tree to escape him. I tried to paint the clouds as an expression of anger and sorrow expressed by Apollo.

 31 X 34 cm

This is not finished, work title: Melancholy Tiger.

 Another riot picture, titled: No!

I want to have lots of smoke in this, colored by the fires. Smoke is not very easy to paint right. Working on it.
