I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion, yearning, sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.

Pittura a olio

Started by TONY ALONZO. Last reply by Elisabetta Crisponi Sep 24, 2011. 2 Replies

Il mio primo quadro, a 18 anni,  l'ho eseguito con colori a olio e da allora, pur avendo sperimentato la tempera, l'acrilico e l'acquerello, ho sempre preferito l'olio a qualunque altra tecnica.

As for me, to paint the portrait is a very difficult thing! Especially, if you want to reach the same like real image. To paint Landscapes, still life, any flowers is a very simple thing for me. So, I'd like to represent one portrait. I need you opinion, please. " DANY", oil on canvas, 35x45, 2010.You can see it on my page. Galina

I paint in oil and it takes me long time to finish a painting. I use a lot of glzing in mywork to get  saturated colours. I romantise dying and death.

I love how people embelish graves of their loved ones they remember, especially if they were children who had died. It brings tars to my eyes.
