"Gold and Silver"

Click Here for Purchase Information

I did another large painting over the weekend. The composition is different from I used to do. It has shown more depth and gives more airy effect. The brushwork varies quite a bit from detail descriptions to loose suggestions. The background is highly abstract and vignette. The Richard Schmid influence is very obvious here. It is so interesting to see how the style changes. When we study from someone, our work will show the similarity. I will let the time to determine my style formation. This time I did use retouch varnish when I started the second day. I was really careful to protect the area that was still wet. I think it worked.

This is really lovely, as was the red cup. I wonder, how do you get such perfect ellipses?

It totally worked, it's a very nice piece. Qiang, you have your own style, your work is nothing like Richard Schmid's. Your work is very spontaneous and love your lose brush work. I love the painting of the little boy with the camera. U should definitely do some more figure paintings!
