Art progress in 4 years

I can’t believe how much time has past since I deeply focus on painting itself 😀

In 2017 when I just started I had no idea what my path would be, but now when I look at my folders I have better concept than before. Here I put some image comparison of my art progress in 4 years.

Barn owl. Left (2017 digital). Right (2020 oil).

Well, at least I’m still improving, right? ^_^

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.
