In my attempt to gift my brother with something unique, specially for him, I have decided to give him a few original paintings, for his new place. The though that came to mind then was to paint the places I’ve been to, places that have stuck with me.
As I have been traveling for the past 8 months, and I was planning on painting in each country I would visit, I had my brushes and paints with me. I did not have the time to paint in each country I’ve visited, because really, I cannot finish an oil painting in 2 weeks, and make it look good, and get it ready for travel….
so, when I got to my mom’s, and “stabilized” for 3 weeks, I thought that I could finally start a few paintings, and this is what came out of it.
Later on, when I got to my dad’s, I was able to paint more, this time in a new series called “hands”…. I don’t have pictures of those canvases, but I will soon.
in the mean time, enjoy and please let me know what you think of these paintings bellow.
They are oil color, on pre-stretched canvas, 100cm x 50cm.
The light I used to take the pictures is not that great, so the colors of the first one are a bit dull and dark. I will try to remedy the picture, or just find better lighting conditions.
