    takashmen: you are welcome. The foreground is flat and cartoon-like, which is kinda unusual for me. I will check that out. For now, I'm busy reading great book called "Fill your oil paintings with light and color" by Kevin Mcpherson. Up until now, it seems to be the best book about painting I've read!
    witcrack: Who knows how it should be? I love about pastels the most that you can make beautiful and very soft color transitions. I tend to use palms to spread the powder so everything is usualy very dirty.
    Alrap: thanks!
    +dave: Ha, never mind. Atmosphere is what inspires me the most, so that's probably the reason why it always comes first.
    Damien Levs: Thank you man!
    Saran09: I'm glad to hear that, thank you!
    OmertA: Thank you for kind words Jamie. I'm especially pleased that you pointed out my watercolors.

    And today, I’d like to share with you several pastels I did about two weeks ago. I strive to capture atmosphere every time I create something and this time was no different. I painted only air (as I saw it) and light. No ground, no trees, no buildings – just pure atmosphere. I also get fascinated over and over by that glow around street lamps when there is a fog outside. I always feel like if there was something behind the fog and that something was far beyond understanding.

    takashmen: thanks again man!

    Let's get back to beginning and paint some still-lifes. These were pretty quick, all under one hour.
    The watercolor was painted at night, only under warm light of a candle. It was damn suprise when I saw how the colors looked the next morning.
    The last one is oil, the rest is old egg temper. I don't have proper red, so I have trouble mixing some colors. But it's still fun.

    wasabi89: thank you bro, the variety is two handed weapon - you try a lot, you learn a lot - but at some point, you have to choose your way.
    Yor: thank you very much!
    nor: thank you too man, it's kinda funny btw: yor & nor
    Whitesock: thanks, I'm glad I could share it. And yep, that's ink.

    Like many others, I’ve always been treating egg tempera like something inferior, especially to oil – the technique of masters. But last week, I discovered how wrong I was. In right hands, it’s as powerfull as anything else.

    Chek out for yourself what I created when I was mindlessly doodling. Mindless doodling is incredible by the way – you do the subjects you like in a way you like – no thinking, just spontaneous painting.

    First three are approx A3, the rest is pretty small about A5.

    Hey guys,

    Today comes a digital painting! Starting point was a temper painting I did few days ago. I tried not to loose the painterly feel.

    I included a step by step tutorial for those who are interested.

    Your scenic painting really capture the feeling of being there. I really like your use of atmospheric perspective.

    beatiful works, merl1n!
    Lovely loose brushwork in your traditional works.
    Would it be nice to take them to a more finished level also, like you do with your digital works? Keep up the good work!
    PS: nice view from your window

    Fantastic environments and great improvement on the traditional side. Some of the pieces seem to be rushed however. I would love to see you spend more time refining some of the watercolours. Are you finding it difficult to make the transition?
