Dear Tanka,

Beautiful painting!

I'd like to hear your comments about two things, if you are reading this note:

1) Your palette has several neon hues in it. Is this something that you usually use for traditional medium as well?

2) On that note, your painting looks like the medium is pastel. Is pastel your favorite medium?


Thanks. I really enjoy your work.


Your friend,

Dear Kwik,

thank you. Glad to see you here!

1) Neon hues are artifacts, because I painted this work from photo, not from nature. Digital photo lets me to create another digital picture on Queeky in more free maner. This is unusually for my works in traditional medium. When I paint in oils from nature I try to paint realistic as possible.

Here is some of my oil pictures:

2) I adore traditional (especially natural) medium, but I draw by pastel very seldom. Most of all I prefer oils and coal.

Dear Tanka,

Thank you for showing the oil paintings. They are lovely.


My favorite medium is also oil, even though I have used all around - pencil, charcoal, ink, acrylics, watercolor, and of course oil.

I also grew more and more fond of pencil for figure drawing -- an example is shown here:

I love figure painting from life. Portraits are all right, depending on whether the subject has an intriguing face or not.

Dear friend,

can I see your oil paintings?

Do you have or want to have special artist education?

Oi...

No, I don't have any formal art training. It's kind of just me. I would love to have more opportunities in art for sure.


Most of the paintings/drawings were of nudes and had been abandoned or lost... I'll make up to you in time, my dear friend Shock

Oil paintings...

I had the honor to view your oil paintings, thank you for posting the url here for us. They are quite amazing. I love to paint on canvas as well but I use acrylics. Thanks again!
