Realistic Oil Paintings
Below is a selection of my realistic oil paintings, more can be found in the blog section.
I paint mainly animals, landscapes, seascapes and paintings by order.
Seascape Oil Paintings
Landscape Oil Paintings
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
Painting 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.
