Van Gogh Studies: Café Terrace at Night

Café Terrace at Night

The second paintings of Van Gogh I studied, "Café Terrace at Night" is one of my favorite. I use textured light blue art card for this studies. As usual painted by using Mungyo Artist Oil Pastel, blending with small stick of white and black Simbalion oil pastel bought back from Taiwan. Simbalion OP is rich in wax and its white and black give a very good layering on top of Mungyo OP.

Van Gogh Studies: Sun Flower

Sun Flower

My studies on Van Gogh's paintings begins here, this is the first one I did. I paint this one on the yellowish art paper, the surface of the paper is textured, which gives a nice effects for oil pastel.

Well, if you aware, my vase is a little bit smaller compare to the original one. I made a mistake on calculation during sketching it. When I realized that, its already too late. Its a bit upeasy for me, although the flowers looks quite charming.

World Cup 2010: Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi, the world best football player of his generation. He born in Argentina and now lives in Spain. He plays for Barcelona and the Argentina national football team.

At the age of 11, Messi was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency. The Argentina local football club River Plate showed interest in Messi's progress, but did not have enough money to pay for treatment for his condition.

Carles Rexach, the sporting director of Barcelona, had been made aware of his talent were able to arrange a trial. Barcelona signed him after watching him play, offering to pay for the medical bills if he was willing to move to Spain.

Therefore his family move to Spain and Messi dedicated himself playing for Barcelona until today.

Messi said:
Barcelona is my life. They have brought me to where I am today. I could not leave, I don't want to leave. I know the Premier League is very good. But I cannot see myself playing in England because my heart is with Barcelona, always.

MUNGYO Artist OP, 12' x 8' white paper.

I like to draw fruits, because of the combination of colors as well as the interesting surfaces on the fruits.

By sketching those fruits I learn that star fruit is really hard to draw. Because of the shape and the colors to express the 3Dness of the star fruit.

Well I enjoy painting orange, that is the reason I place the orange infront and hides the star fruit behind.
