“Discover the orange" --- Sold

In my previous two painting emails, I mistakenly described my paintings as "Pencil drawings". I apologize for the mistake. I generate my painting email by cut and paste from my blog to a hand made html template. It is simple but not perfect.

You might have noticed, my recent paintings I smoothed out the background and kept the foreground more painterly. They are more like David Leffel's style. I like Richard Schmid's approach of using vignetted background with washes and dry brushes. I also like what David does to make the background smooth to increase the feeling of the depth. Can these two wonderful methods combined, I am not so sure.

Love this one. The blue and orange together are fantastic and those edges are just a delight to look at.

Beautiful! Your paintings are wonderful using either style. Now, what is Qiang's style? More of you will be evident in your paintings over time-your style.

I, too am working on this for myself. I will let you know how my style is developing as I continue to follow your blog and observe the development of your style.

I agree with MeeLi Lee. Find your own style, develop and perfect it. I like your paintings with a little light in the background. You have a way with the lighting of your subject that I love. Keep up the great work!
