Ran, painter, author, developer


My name is Ran, and I was born in 1972.

I started painting at a very young age, especially drawing nostalgic cartoon figures.

When I grew up, I engaged in computer graphics, mainly 2D and 3D graphics and web developing.

After the birth of my daughter, I devoted several years for figurative pencil drawing before starting my artistic journey for realistic painting with oil paints.

When it comes to oil painting, I focus primarily on landscapes, seascapes and the animal kingdom but I paint other subjects too.

Realistic oil painting is a challenge and a craft that combines knowledge and experience.

Science has its importance when painting realism. Understanding physics, geometry, perspective and climate can help a lot.

The combination of hard work and constant research leads to growth or evolution.

Personal Note

Each article or painting is special for its creator. That said, sometimes there are creations we like more than others.

My favorite article is How to Create the Illusion of Depth. It took a lot of time to develop (both writing and drawing). It is still under constant development.
