Always can be better...

Do you notice the differences and the improvement? I revised the painting after having my mentor, Kam Mak's critique. I really learn a lot from him:)) Obviously, the one on the right is the revised one that the girl is much more alive and everything is just more three-dimensional. It is always can be better!

A girl lives in a tree house with a fox...

8" x 10" (oil on gesso board )

under tone painting


In previous post, I had this girl in the painting and she appeared very small in the composition. Thus, I feel like I own her a portrait, which can show her lovely face clearly. I am definitely like her outfit and wish someone can make one for me!

Golden Flakes

After Kam's (my painting mentor) critique, I revised it that I took away the purple pole and added some falling leaves... 
Thank you for Kam~

handmade clay model!!

Finally, summer comes and I miss my winter so much now. Last week, I kept working on this tree house painting and really enjoyed to paint the tree texture a lot. There is still some minor areas that I need to refine and fix...Overall, I am happy about this one. Besides, I think making a clay model helps  me a lot for figure out the correct shadow and I would use this method for my future works.
