Welcome to my Art Gallery!
Painting is one of my most favorite pastimes.I love all sorts of media, starting with simple pencil, and ending with complex oil paints.This includes everything that you can possibly imagine in-between such as watercolor, soft pastels, oil pastels – you name it!In the recent weeks I started to do commission work where I create custom paintings of pets and people.You can find a few examples below. It all started with this cute baby Leo whom I painted as a birthday present for my cousin,and I could not stop ever since. I have people asking me to paint their pets all the time, and I love creating beautiful art for them to take home and hang on their walls!

I find watercolor to be easy and hard at the same time. It’s an easy medium to work with, but is quite hard to master. Faces are the hardest for me when done in color (especially the noses – these guys always come out a bit wrong).
Oil Paintings – Dry Brush Technique
Experimenting with the dry brush technique where oil colors can be used on paper. I use watercolor paper for its texture. When oil colors are applied onto this paper with a dry brush, the results can look quite great.
