Latest paintings - step by step

June 29th, 2014

I haven't been taking much "work in progress" photos of my work lately, but it's still nice to see how the paintings evolved during the days (and weeks). It helps me learn a lot from them, after they're finished. Most importantly - when to stop.

 

1. The Return

This painting evolved so much since the initial sketch. You can almost say I did three completely different paintings.

Finished painting:

 

2. Amsterdam

I've never painted a cityscape of this size before. I also discovered that painting straight lines is more challenging than painting faces.

3. Kindred

Painting this wasn't easy, but it felt like the painting was leading itself to its finish...
