Wag the Dog – 24-04-22

surrealist nude oil painting

My graphite pencil drawing Wag the Dog – 26-09-21 was waiting on the shelf to be put into oil. After my last oil Slava Ukraini – 18-04-22 I thought I’d use another surrealist theme and why not?

Model Session – 14-03-22

While creating my recent series of oil paintings suddenly I felt it was time to have a new model session.

Slava Ukraini – 18-04-22

surrealist nude oil painting

The West has recently become familiar with the phrase ‘Slava Ukraini’. Obviously everyone who is a democrat and values freedom above all can support the meaning of this slogan.

Solarized Roundism – 07-03-22

cubist nude oil painting

A new oil painting based on my graphite pencil drawing ‘Solarized Geometry -26-11 21’. After the previous one ‘Rusalka, Free Floating in Russian Waters – 28-02-22’ I was in for something new. In fact, I always am and that mindset prevents me from repeating the same old same.

Risque – 22-02-22

cubist nude oil painting

This Risque oil looks like a wild Liberace. Or could it be that I was inspired by the song ‘Digital Love’? Often I get these almost synaesthetic feelings whilst listening to music.

Clairobscur – 06-10-20

impressionisitic nude pastel drawing

In 2013 I started this clairobscur lit nude and tucked it in one of pastel maps, only to forget about it for years and years.

Cubist Expressionism – 08-09-20

cubist expressionistic nude oil painting

After careful considering I chose for a rendering with hatched strokes like I am used to in doing pastels and many a drawing, even though this is the first time in oil.

Bedside Moonlighting – 31-08-20

impressionistic nude graphite pencil drawing

My model and I were looking for intesting poses and on the bedside there it was: a beautiful one with some interesting lighting. Sometimes extreme light like in this particular case can offer a new insight in compositionary possibilities.
