Small Seascapes (Mendocino - the cliff beach) - SOLD

It was very interesting to paint this one. The value of the sea water, the beach and the cliff were very close, I used the local color to separate them; moving the rock around on the canvas was fun for the composition; the size and edge was the tool to create the space; the brushwork helped to express the different texture... I think this is the beauty of the oil painting, and this is why I love the oil painting.
Please email me if you are interested to purchase this small beauty.

BBQ for the festival

Available at Silvana Gallery.

Are you planning for a BBQ this year?

This is the first narrative painting I have done, it is not an easy subject to paint.

I was attracted by the kebab and wondered about how to paint it, this is the reason I started this painting, but I think the beauty of the painting is the hard working chefs.

Girl Protrait - SOLD

by Silvana Gallery.

Yes, I graduated. No more nude figure :) The reason I chose nude figure as my final project was that I wanted to use the hardest subject to practice my skills, and now is the time for me to paint some thing that I want to paint :)

Some friends asked me about what do I want to paint now? The answer is simple: anything touches me, the subject does not matter to me.

This is the only "finished" portrait painting I completed in this couple years. Although I call it portrait, but her face was not the first focus point I wanted to paint. I think some time the body language could expresses the emotion and feeling too. I don't have the title for this painting yet, so, please let me know if you have a good title for it.

Happy New Year from Fongwei
