knife painting - Skies of Spain

This is a re-creation of Leonid Afremov's skies of Spain. It was done using palette knife on handmade paper. Since it was not done on canvas, it looks quite different from the original.

Quickfix Cone flowers

As I said, it was a quick fix, done in about 20 minutes, using soft and oil pastels. Although the 20 days are over, i did think I should upload this.

Day 20 - Romancing the rain

It's pretty late in the night, but I've worked on this for about three hours, so had to upload. The original is a knife painting by Leonid Afremov. I have recreated it on handmade paper, using brush too in some places. This is the end of my 20 day initiative, as I'll be getting rather busy with academics. But if any new painting gets done, I will post here. Let's hope I get the time for it.

Day 18 - Cityscape, Cloudy night

The inspiration for this was nothing else but the cloudy night sky. Soft Pastels on paper.

Day 17 - The Guitarist (Knife Painting)


I have just started knife painting, this is my second one, and the one I did on my own, not in painting class, so it's roughish. The original, 'Guitar and Soul' is brilliantly done by Leonid Afremov.  Knife painting is done using palette knives. Oil on canvas.
