"Incomplete" 不完整


Painting the whole thing in Photoshop from the setting I made several days ago.

The Left one was broken because I was backing up the car and ran over it, the right one I got it cheap from a native american store with 7 dollars since it was broken.

"不完整"

剛搬到舊金山的那幾天,左邊的音樂盒掉在車庫被車壓過去,已經轉不動也撥不出聲音了,右邊的應該是山貓的頭骨,在幾年前於北邊黃石公園入口處的一家印地安人商店買的,因為破損,用了7元美金購買下來.

2010.04.04 Oregon Coast




A trip with my sister and her family, and it was raining.
We didn't really go out, so I stay in the room and painted this one.
Right after this one, I also did a small oil painting with the same view.

2D Artist Magazine Issue 68



The topic is about how to paint children for 2D Artist magazine. You can find this tutorial in issue 68.
I did one thing which I think it fun to try. I mixed with a photo of my oil paintings, and I think it create some nice texture and some nice color blend which is hard to get with Photoshop brush.

ASUS EEE Note meets Auguste Rodin



This was done with Asus EEE Note EA800 which has 8 inch gray scale LCD, Linux based system , and Wacom Pen with pressure sensitivity.
Sadly, ASUS didn't continue to advance this product which I though has a lot of potential, and it only costs 230 US Dollars. Current version the hardware was great, but the software support is weak.

I did these drawings from last weekend when I visited Legion of Honor. They have some really good collections in the museum, and I found out Rodin has some of the best composition pieces in this museum.

Another painting session around Lake City way in Seattle




Gary Faigin is the Artistic Director and cofounder of the Gage Academy of Art, and he runs this sessions.
I paid 6 sessions and only went 3 times.

Portrait Painting with Digital Media 2010.01


This is the 25 minutes sketch from the same session.

Energy/Fresh/Raw
This is one of my early Paintings with digital medium from observation with life model.
Every time when I started with new subjects and new media, it always contains more energy and felt fresh. His name is Bob and he lives with her daughter in Seattle now. Later on, I invited him for another painting session.

Rembrandt van rijn



Currently there are not many good quality photos of Rembrandt's paintings online, and I felt these are good photos to share.

These photos were taken from MAT in 2010/05, and his paintings always make me stay here for a while, and his paintings shows the perfection of technique in the whole time.

This tree quarter lighting was what Rembrandt used for most of his portrait paintings, and how he handle the shadow is just amazing.

It is also fun to look at how artists today approach different types of portrait paintings like Lucian Freud, Chuck Close, and many others after seeing 400 years old master paintings.

Our Family Tree

This was one of my favorite exhibitions when I visit New York in Museum of Nature History in 2010/05. Look at how Human get here make me think about how Art evolve may be just like this.

Most of these species are extinct and only one-modern Home sapiens- ultimately survived.



Mt. Vernon 2010.04



There were tulip field in Mt Vernon but I found this place was nice, and stay there for this painting.
My favorite part was the upper right corner house and trees. They are fun to paint and fun to look at after I finished it.

Three Valley Lake Ghost Town







This is my favorite place from my Banff Trip.

I really hope they can keep this place for another 50 years.
Their collections are equal to Victoria BC Museum.

Rocky Mountains and Banff National Park







I was surprised a lot of good shots were done by Sony HX5v, which has tiny sensor with 10X optical zoom lenses camera.
