Daffodils in Violet Vase

"Mario, Saghi, Diane, Cristina, Aurelia and Colleen, thank you all so much. I wasn't sure how it would turn out when I painted it. Initially I made the vase more desaturated, so that it wouldn't draw the attention away from the flowers, but…"

The Stare

"Thanks Michael for your explanation and i understand your point. This guy is staring at me and makes me nervous after a while. I figured that i can nicely avoid eye contact and rest my eyes on the yellow side of the background ;-)"

About me

I have been drawing and painting all my life without any training until 2010, when I started attending a studio with tuition half a day a week. In the past I painted mainly in watercolour, but in the last few years, I've immersed myself in oils and I love it. I have read many books (around 80) on various topics and artists.

 

In 2011 I started the Virtual Art Academy course (virtualartacademy.com), a home-study course with an online campus.

 

I live in London and make the most of the wonderful art museums here (almost all free) and the numerous commercial galleries to study paintings at first hand.

 

I have lived and worked in Brazil too (Rio de Janeiro) where I enjoyed seeing the styles of painting there and returned to London with a number of paintings that I bought! I have lived too in Canada (Calgary) and Nigeria.
