Sharing you some of my life drawings, from charcoal, to ink, to pastel. See more by clicking the link :) #lifedrawing #drawing #portraiture  
He also talks about drawing in a way that a kung fu master would about martial arts, or an enlightened monk would about the thousands of miles he's walked...

What does this make you feel?
#oilpainting #eternity  
I knew the painting was titled 'The Promised Eternity' before I grabbed the brush. But what does 'the promised eternity' mean to you?

Thank you, Kim. I'm going to paint a few more just around the house, and I'll try to video them, too. So happy that you enjoyed my video :)

Hey, I’m very close to finishing my long-awaited Oil Painting E-course! But I need YOUR help finalising it.  Please take a few minutes to answer this super-short survey – there is really only one thing I want to ask you…
What are your two top questions about 'Paint the Girl with A Pearl Earring with Vermeer' that I absolutely NEED to answer in my painting e-course?

The first time I held a brush in my hand and put paint on canvas in November 2011, it felt like magic.

Even when you were frustrated and the result was far from satisfactory.
There!  Right there, you saw with absolute clarity what you were born to do!

Magic? Corny? Or Scientifically-Proven?

If you’ve somehow “stumbled on”  your passion like I did, you can certainly relate.  But if you have not yet found your life’s passion, you’d probably roll your eyes, or even think it’s corny.

But hey, I just discovered that this almost-mystical experience is actually scientifically proven!

Why Aren't You More Passionate about What You Do, and How to Change That. It's not just magic, it's also scientifically-proven.

How would you feel if you could finally crash the dreaded inner critic?

Studying the masters’ works is one of the most effective way to silence our inner critic.  Because:
- We will grow in skills and confidence;
- We will see what we can accomplish;
- We will start to see the Masters as mentors, teachers and peers;

Experience life from an expansive mind, so you can develop your authentic expression!

When we are confident, we experience life from an expansive state of mind;
We are able to reach deeper into our own souls;
Then we can develop our true authenticity, because
we finally believe in it, in ourselves.
Get the skills and confidence to paint with the Masters. Let's re-create 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' with Vermeer!

In this short video Matisse book review, not only will you get a peak into pages of the book, but also how it has impacted my work in a very direct way.

Valentine’s Day is approaching, why not send your love flowers that will never wither, just like your love that will never fade away?

#oilpainting #valentinesdaygifts #flowerpower  
Beautiful blossoms are always just around the corner, you only need to look to see them. Why not send your love flowers that will never wither, just like your love?
