Blue Sunset

I always like to look at the sky, especially during early morning and evening. I like to go to beach, where you can enjoy looking at the sky as well as listen to the rhythm of the waves.

I always find it hard to paint trees and fields using oil pastel, as it seems to be messy and unstructured but it does obey the laws of nature, which introduce some patterns to be trace.

Scenery: Country Road

paper : 12' x 8' white paper

I went to Sekinchan, Malaysia during September 2009 when the paddy field is still green. Driving through the road between green paddy field.

This is a breakthrough for me to use only 13 colours on this piece, and I like the outcome. Usually, I tend to mix and blends a lots of colour together until it turns out dirty.

Initially, I sketch the scenery with light grey, differentiate the area based on colour tone and parting them with lines. I do precisely choose the combination of colours before I start my painting too.

willow trees under the waning moon

OP: MUNGYO 72 color
Paper's color: White
Size: 8.5 inch x 11 inch

Its been awhile I rest from painting, until the art show album of Pang Jiun I ordered from Taiwan arrived. His art urge me to sketch again, the color and the oriental feel of his oil paintings impress me a lots.

Therefore I picked one of my favourite painting out from his art show album, and try to come out the oil pastel version. This is what I usually do for practice, trying to gain some oriental sense in art.

There are so much different between oil paint and oil pastel, it is no way for me to imitate the expression of oil painting by using oil pastel. But I do not give up, instead I put my feeling towards the scenery while painting it.

Paddy Field at Sekinchan

Size: 8 inch X 12 inch
Paper: White

It was a beautiful morning,
I walk across the paddy field at Sekinchan.

The wind blows, and the paddy is smiling.
A car bypass at the very far end,
Slowly without making any noise.

At that moment,
The peace is there.
