This is my first post in 2017. and here are some new paintings I’ve finished in the last couple of months. I am exploring big, flat brushes and Chinese brushes in these works. Have a nice day!
Hello everyone, I haven’t been quite active here lately, but here are some new stuff from the past few months.
I’ve been working on a new webpage portfolio of my art, which is currently in progress: BaricevicArt
Hope you like some of these and please comment, critique, share. I love reading every suggestion posible 😉
Last month was all about experimenting with different brush strokes to create a more fresh painting with an imapct. Here’s a selection of the ones I enjoy viewing and hope that you will to 😉
I’ve started working with softer brushes and concentrate on bigger shapes with fresh washes. The first painting is done in one go with soft blending for a a hazy mood and the second one is 2 washes: first a light color wash to set the mood and then a wash with strong pigment to set light with enhanced tone contrast. Hope you enjoy them! 😉
In April I’ve started using Fabriano 300 g rough and it’s a wonderful paper to work with. Trying to use the biggest brush possible and not focus on detail but more on composition and atmosphere. Hope you enjoy these! 😉
March was all about exploring marks with a hake brush and a palette knife. It’s a lot of fun if you want results very fast, because the hake is a forgiving brush, you can do wonders with a single stroke. Here are some of my experiments, hope you enjoy them:
Countryside paintings are always something I enjoy doing because the view is so calming and peaceful and everywhere you look there is another good subject. This one is 21 x 30 cm.
After spending a lot of time (and money) with different brushes I have found that a cheap hog brush fits me perfectly and allows me to easily play with different textures. The search for the right tools is always unique 😉
I’m really awaiting those sunny days in the countryside and looking forward to my first plain air year! 😉
Although the sky and water inspired me, the duck family takes all the glory for this one 😀
