You’re now viewing my painting of a woman enjoying a self portrait by Paul Gauguin. He dedicated this self portrait to Van Gogh. In it Gauguin appears as Jean Valjean, anti-hero of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables’, who, while vilified by society, remains true to his personal morality. Seen on the right in profile is Émile Bernard, a fellow painter, who later accused Gauguin of taking credit for his ideas – not without some justification.

Painting in Progress- Day 5 Ralph's Supermarket

Painting In Progress
the first stages of a brand new painting- day 5

I'm not satisfied with the portrait, but I left it for what it is and revisit it later. I'm now working on the background. It gets pretty messy at times as I'm painting over certain areas by accident. As you can see one figure almost disappeared and the other ones don't look too sharp either. I'll fix that at a later date. For I just want to get that light straight!

Painting in Progress- Day 4 Ralph's Supermarket

Painting In Progress

Today I'm working on the portrait on one of the magazines in lower right corner. It still needs a lot of work, but perhaps by now you can tell who it is I'm painting.

Painting in Progress- Day 1- 3 Ralph's Supermarket

Painting In Progress
the first stages of a brand new painting- day 1 and 2

Day1-2

After a week filled with things unrelated to painting I struggled figuring out what to paint next. I finally came up with this scene at a Ralph's supermarket in LA. You see it here in the first stages. I love the spacious composition and can't wait to get my hands dirty on all the details on the left and right of the painting.

Day 3

I'm blocking in colors and more colors not caring so much about details just yet. In case you're wondering what's what; on the left there's mostly candy, that black and brownish greenish blob in the middle will be a shopping car and on the far right I'm painting quite a few magazines. Well, back to blocking in colors!
