I’m back!!! And this is not all. Not only I am back but also I am available for commissioned work!
It’s been a long process. It took many years to master the skills I’ve got now. But now I can create practically anything
During my artistic pursuits I changed my style dramatically.
I have experimented with many things. There was a time when I was doing photography plus purely digital work (painting on a computer with Painter software and Photoshop, creating and rendering 3D models with Cinema4D and ZBrush).
It was cool and ultra modern but I wanted more. So I submerged myself into classical Flemish oil painting technique. This was the way in which the Old Masters painted. I started to do those very meticulous multilayer paintings with very soft brushes. Some people call this method “The Seven-layer technique of oil painting”. Truth be told, the amount of layers is always different. It is not exactly seven. Usually it is more than that. Before starting a new layer, an artist should wait until the previous layer is completely dry. So a creation of a painting can easily take a year or more. It was perfectly acceptable a few centuries ago but now… Time goes faster nowadays...
Eventually, I development my own technique which combines my love for computers with venerable oil paints. Now I use both. I prime my own canvases with a special kind of a ground. I paint on a computer first which allows me to experiment with colors and composition. Then I pour everything on a canvas and start to work with classical brushes and oil paints.
The result is a painting on a canvas. Museum quality painting.
You can commission a classical portrait of yourself. Or you can commission a fantasy portrait. There are no boundaries in what can be created.
