    Oil painting dump

    Hi again. Here are some oil paintings I've done during the last month-1,5 months.

    Mostly still life paintings but also two of six paintings I was ordered to paint
    for a finnish IT company for their office and for use in some of their leaflets
    etc. All paintings are painted on board with oils.

    Sorry for some of the photos as they are a bit blurry, should get a stand
    for my camera... and better lighting conditions.

    On to the point then:

    First a couple of quick still life paintings with vegetables as I promised to
    paint some of them last time I posted.




    Both painted alla prima. Size: 10'x10' and took about 3 hours each.

    Then a still life painting with a food theme also. As I'm going to visit some
    ateliers in Florence and show them some of my work for applying I decided to
    paint something fitting for the purpose. They mostly want drawings but I
    decided to put one painting along also.

    12'x15', about 20 hours.

    Then two of the six comissioned paintings. I'm doing two with bluish, two with
    yellow toned and two with light red backrounds, at least that was agreed with
    the person who I talked to about them.


    This painting yet lacks the text "Ride on time" written on it, I'm still thinking
    how I'm going to paint it, open to suggestions


    Kind of liked how this turned out. Both are about 24'x16' or little bigger.

    A quick 7'x12' sized 3h snake for laughs.


    A life drawing of my mother


    And for the last one a life study of a my cobolt blue.

    Wish it was some other color as this means I need a new C.Blue soon and
    they aren't cheap

    Thats about it, hope you like them.

    Comments and especially critiques are always welcome and needed.

    Thanks Elwell. And thanks for the tip lines are something I really need to practice, especially in pencil drawings as there they have so big role.
