Realistic Oil Paintings

Below is a selection of realistic oil paintings I drew.

I paint mainly animals, landscapes, seascapes and paintings by order.

The atmosphere has a profound effect on landscape painting.

Color, brightness values and edges are used to create the illusion of depth.

The further away an object is from the observer, the contrast between the object and its' surrounding will decrease and so does the contrast of its texture.

The object color will become less saturated and its color will deviate toward the sky color depending on its distance and climate conditions.

Animal Kingdom Oil Paintings

Oil painting of animals requires consideration in the anatomical structure and accuracy in details.

Colors are important too. Each animal, like any object, is identified by its unique hue, which acts as its fingerprint.
