Good evening, everybody. I trust you're well.

I wanted to share with you my new video on how to paint a #stilllife in #oil.
Starting from blank canvas, all the way to my finished artwork, you can see the progress of the painting, stage by stage.

I chose to paint #lemons, because I love lemons! How about you, guys?
They are of the most precious gifts God has given Man! It's their dazzling colour, their intoxicating flowers, their immense value in our nutrition, their lovely aroma, their impeccable beauty, ... everything about them.

This is the first complete video I am posting on lemons and still life, in general.
Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments below.
I'd love to hear from you!

Want to watch my new videos? Keep track of them on my YouTube channel.

Have a good evening and a good rest, everyone.

I don't know if I should be saying this, but I just found out that, from my mother's line, I am descended from the #Medici!

I mean, I've always known my ancestors were #Italian, but I never thought they were the Medici!

That explains my immense love for #opera and the #art of the #Renaissance. It's my #Italian blood...

Diego Velázquez was born #OnThisDay in 1599. 'The Rokeby Venus' is the only surviving example of a female nude by the artist. See the work in Room 30: http://bit.ly/2rB5pE2

'The Painter's Daughters chasing a Butterfly' may be Thomas Gainsborough's earliest portrait of his two daughters Mary and Margaret; some six others are known. The painting hangs in Room 35: http://bit.ly/2rkvLdt

'The Morning Walk' by Thomas Gainsborough shows an elegant young couple strolling through a woodland landscape, an attentive dog at the lady's heel. William Hallett and Elizabeth Stephen were both aged 21 and due to be married in the summer of 1785, shortly after the painting was completed. See this painting in Room 34: http://bit.ly/2o1Wr08
