Check in 2016

Hello everyone,

There a lot of good things to share this time.
Not so long ago I had a taste of painting with oil the great outdoors, it was an amazing experience. New Zealand has the most beautiful inspiring landscapes, and Im soo thrilled about it. Its very challenging to deal with the changing light, the wind and rain, gotta grip on the essence of the scene the atmosphere the mood, but I can tell you this is one of the most enjoyable experience an artist can have.
I found out about other masters of plein air painting, and became very enthusiastic to study their work, Richard Robinson, John Crump, Jim McVicker, and also Monet, Sargent, the french impressionists gave me great inspiration.
I have more paintings done in the past year, here is a little snippet of them I hope you enjoy.

I also have a new website, and artist facebook page where I post my most recent artworks:

 Here is a few of the best paintings I have done from 2015.

This one is the view from the look out at Shakespeare Regional Park. I spent quite a lot of time on this. When I was sitting there looking this amazing view, I thought it would be impossible to capture it on a painting. But slowly step by step working on it building up the layers, rewarded me with the result of this painting Im quite happy about.

Grants Island Mahurangi Harbour. It was an amazing view trough a paddock from the side of the road. I made this oil sketch, and planning to do a bigger one about this in the future.

Riverhead forest oil on canvas, made 'en plein air'  I used to go here for horse riding and got inspired to paint these trees, and capture the peaceful spirit of this place one day. The paddocks were empty, I was missing the horses they used to graze there.

 Low tide at Cox's Bay painted 'en plein air'
love the sight of boats sitting in the mud, their reflections in the paddles make me mesmerised.
This is KatrinaII painted 'en plein air' at Westhaven Marina
I love classic sailing yachts, I was quite happy to find this beauty :)
 Scandretts Bay ' en plein air'
Szentendre the town of artists
I love this little town in Hungary, so cosy and colourful.
