Rose Garden

Blooming roses in the summer time!

After several flower paintings, I wanted to take a break from the flowers and paint something different. This is a quick setup and quick painting using rather cool colors. I think it turned out good.

Warm and Bright

I want to capture the bright sun light shines on the subjects on the table, with flowers in the background. The purpose was to learn the alla prima process of painting many subjects on the big canvas. It's a bit challenge for me and I learned a lot from doing this one. I believe I can do better next time.

Pink Bow

Under the warm afternoon sun and colorful daisies, the pink bow is quietly standing there, waiting to be found.


I got this orchid from a good friend of mine a couple weeks ago, and I said to myself why not just paint it. Orchid has its unique shape and structure, and I spent a lot of time modeling the leaves and petals. It's a quite different experience from painting the roses.
