This was a challenge to myself to do a cold modern painting. It was suggested I was making urban images to sentimental by seeing beauty in urban settings through my use color and technique. I'm not changing my style, but am always up for an experiment on the right subject.16x20 Oil on canvas.
Exciting news! A painter I've admired from afar for awhile now has hooked up with the Los Feliz to teach a portrait class. His name is Vadim Zanginian and he was trained in the Russian tradition. I'll be taking the class and expect some good painters to be there. I find his work to be a great combination of solid foundation drawing, but with a lush impressionistic painting approach. Please tell Ben or Jen I sent you.
If you want to see more of his masterful work please visit his site link in my links------->
