Subject of forest interiors have always been one of my favourite and one of the most difficult at the same time. It can be quite a challenge to organize that visual chaos into a readable statement. But hey, what artist would I be if I didn’t try to capture those serene feelings which pine forests offer?
What do you think. Are these paintings success?

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!

Three brand new paintings for you today! I finnaly increased size of my canvases by a bit and I must admit that working larger is even more exciting.

Soon I will be having annual exams. That means showcasing and defending all my work from past year.
And these paintings are the last I managed to paint in time to be included. I’m curious what the jury will say, because not many painters work in plein-air here. We are rare kind in Czech Republic.

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

John Singer Sargent is one of the best examples of artist with clear ability to simplifi without loss of realism.
Bruce Mcavoy, in his brilliant article, describes Sargent’s unique focus: “…identifying by the accumulation of single brushstrokes the minimal arrangement of signs necessary to produce a completely convincing reality.”
And what is the best to way to obtain an ability of an artist you admire? To copy his works. Following image is not precise copy of Sargent’s painting: Golden sail. But rather an attempt to learn his brilliant technique.

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?

These are oil paintings I did about two weeks ago. I’m not entirely happy with them, but I wanted to share them anyway. To keep record of my progres.

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.
