I recorded a demo I did for students during one of my workshops. The topic was painting a small landscape study. This is pretty much how I usually put color on canvas, especially when working in plein air.
The reference was a painting by Caspar David Friedrich. I’ll be glad to hear what you think. Especially if there is anyone interested in more of these videos.

I would say that ponds are very significant sign of my country. Wherever you go, you probably soon find one. And the best is that they are so paintable!

I can’t stop it. I’m probably addicted to painting trees. :)

This is a studio painting I did three weeks ago. I used a plein-air study as a starting point, but at some point, I took a new direction and let the painting evolve on it’s own. Do you like it?

I was lucky to spend a week on one of the Canary islands called “Isla la verde” and “Isla la bonita” – Green island and Beautiful island. It was real paradise for hikers. One could discover unspoiled corners of wild nature in the shadows of sleeping volcanos.
Unfortunetely I managed to do only several sketches, because we couldn’t afford to stay on one spot for too long, otherwise we could get stuck in wilderness – walking at night was too risky.
I will soon upload some photos to share this extraordinary place with you.

I’ve received few questions regarding the latest pack of pictures. “Where is the border between original and digital painting?” Was one of the frequent questions. And here is the image which explains it quite simply. On the left are original tempera paintings, on the right photoshop overpaints. Main purpose of this digital post-process was to emphasize important qualities of each image. You can clearly see that both aspects, traditional and digital, are equaly important.
People also ask why don’t I just paint them from start to finish. The answer is simple. It would never look like this if I just painted it. If I want to keep this specific visual, I have to do it this way.
Thank you guys for looking, I’m very greatful I can share my stuff with you.

As I promised in earlier post, here comes a second pack of new pictures from my factory.
The process of their creation was following: I painted a quick and energetic sketch with tempera. Then I scanned it. And in the end, I did some overpainting in photoshop.
See? It really is a symbiosis of old and new craft.

I’ve just finished first bunch of new artworks. This time, I seriously took tempera paintings and tweaked them in photoshop while trying to maintain original idea. But what now? Print them on canvas and do oil overpaint on same areas? Or leave them as they are?
More stuff of this kind is coming anyway guys. I will be hoping in your comments.

Here comes second pack of quick studies of atmosphere. To keep it fast and simple I do these using only limited color pallete of yellow, red, blue and white and two filbert brushes n. 8. One for light colors and one for dark.
Check also the photo of my workstation. Small window – big view. :)
And first half of little atmosphere studies here.
