hi there...:). this is to wish u all a merry christmas and a very happy new year.
i painted this from life, from some souvenir that i have and a couple of references were merely consulted aswell. i did visualize the composition and the mood.
painted in artrage and some final tweaking in photoshop - using tablet.

happy viewing...:).

Very soft tones, yet rich detail. Outstanding work. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

A great one Waheed...i love the soft way in which you've portayed the ornament in the dimmed light it makes it feel even more special to me :D

You've captured the way the glazing tends toward sepia tones (in the indirect lighting at the sides of the vase) when it's very old. That coupled with the style of the vase definitely makes it feel like an old family heirloom.

Thank you Waheed!

Best of the new year and all that to you too! What calendar are you on?

This painting looks great! The light hitting the color of the vases and hinting at so much more lying beyond makes it feel like the title could be 'The Promise'.

Well done! :D :D :D

leo, jack, d akey, henna and cedric...thank u so very much...:).

d akey...yeah, i like that title, "promise" aswell, but u know, the actual title that id to put was "Memento", but i made a silly spelling mistake. so pls see it as Memento, not Momento...:).

a very happy new year to the whole community at ambient design / artrage.

have a great time...:).

May be you are an alien to do so beautifull paintings.
I m really sure that if you really paint on material with real oil paintings, you'll do miracles.
I like very very much your style. It"s not impressionism, not pointillism or something else, but you control the light and the choice of your colours.
Please, don't stop !
