Digital painting of Bruce Greenwood

This is a practice for me to explore and adjust some brushes in my digital drawing software. Most of time I tend to use one single brush to finish all work. So I have to force myself try something new and play with dozes of parameters on each brush.

I was watching movie <Spectral> when I drew this piece and I found him as general again. ^_^. I like how he played as general/admiral, especially captain Pike from <Star Trek>. Well, as to the movie, the idea was really interesting.

Among all those time travel, space travel and DNA related topic, this what they called Bose-Einstein condensate feels fresh. I spent days searching and reading and trying to understand this concept. Although it might have some theory and logic bugs (all other Sci-Fi movies do), I think this movie did a good job on telling a story and building characters.

I hope you would enjoy this movie as I did.

Thank you.

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
