Kind of busy recently, forgot to post the paintings. My small group runs very well, we paint almost every Monday, here is the study I did a couple weeks ago. 14"x18" oil on canvas, please let me know if you are interested.
Last week's study from my small group. The model's yellow shirt is interesting to me, so I decided to add a warmer light in the background to create a warm tone for the painting. Email me if you are interested in the painting, 11x14, oil on linen.
I started a painting open studio with model on Mondays, 9am to 2pm. I have planned to do this for a long time but didn't get a chance to start... anyway, we finally started! If you are near the SF South bay area and interested in joining me, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, I will let you know when I have a spot available.
This is a 12"x 16"study I did, I tried to capture the moment when the girl was looking at the bar, please let me know if you are interested in the painting.
As I mentioned in the previous post, I am working on some big paintings. Here is a finished one. I find that my photos are always unable to show the big painting well, so I added a couple details of the painting, hope this will help. Let me know if you are interested in the painting.
Animals are always an interesting subject for me to paint. I like the brush strokes applied on the dog, the spring green shows on her body.
The girl is beautiful, I tried to capture the moment when she put her foot in the water, I can feel her happiness even when her face is in the shadow.
I know that I haven't posted any paintings for a while because I have not painted much recently. This is a painting I started a couple months ago but just finished last week, please email me if you are interested.
I resumed painting models in my studio with my friends and students, so I will have more paintings to share soon.
I came from China and live in San Francisco bay area now.
I got my BFA from China, MFA from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and now I am on the graduate-school faculty at the school.
Please enjoy my blog, and I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions about my painting. I really hope my work can bring you a piece of happiness today.
