Hi every one,
Like I sayed i'm new on this site and wanted to show all of you abit of my work in oil painting. I hade taken about 9 years of private course in oil painting and I did here and there some drawing in those classes too. The 2 painting's that i'm showing you right now. I think are the 2 that meen alot to me. First because of the amount of work I putt into it and well the other one because one as a story to it.
*The painting with a street and a tower in the background. The story of this is.:
It start off that my father side of the familly is german. My dad always told me that my grand-father was born on that street. The iron work that you see, with the preztel. Well I was told that my grand-father boss started that and when he past away, my grand-father finish it.
This area always meen alot to my grand-mother and when she immigrated to Canada. She asked a painter to paint this same one and my parents as that painting and it was done in 1955. So for me i was always admire that painting and when i started my painting class i decided to re-do it from a picture that my Dad hade of the history of the town. So that painting as you see it is finish and i even putt a year on it just to make sure and I finish it in 1998. That painting is hang over my bed. ))
The size of my painting is 24x18 and the medium is oil. Took me about 1 year to finish in my painting class. The name of the town is Bad Wimpfen
*The painting with the castle in Germany. The Castle Neuschwanstein
This is a painting 4 years in the making. Why it took me so much time because of all the detail this castle as. I hade to work on some thing else and come back after but finish it and i got my aunt to cald it my master piece and i'm very proud of it.
