“Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.”
-Vincent van Gogh 
I found this little plant 🌱 in the early morning on the way to the ocean.

It’s a new year and I’m on a new phase to create more paintings!

Together

Together
Oil on linen, 2018
22.7 x 15.8 cm
POR






















These dragon fruits were from my friend’s garden in the southern island of Japan.  Certainly I enjoyed the taste afterwards.  It was so good!

I often use Burnt sienna trans for the under painting like this since I like the warm feeling which will see through afterwards.
The main color was permanent rose mixed with burnt sienna trans, vermillion, ultramarine blue, chrome yellow and titanium white, I believe.


Thank you for viewing.
Have a wonderful day!
