Oil on canvas, 90 x 70 cm (without the frame).

Start from 0 - finish approximately 2 days of work (7-8 hours per day) used my own free-time. And thanks God, it's gonna be sold after that (which is the reason I framed it) for some bucks.

Thanks for viewing. Hope you'll enjoy your own serenity.

P.S. - I used my own photo for reference & added the sakura tree on the left with my own imagination. (5 years and 2262 days ago)

Family Matters

Oil on canvas, 60 x 80 cm.

Black Swan Family playing, teaching, arguing, and many other things they do on the water. It represents the whole family matters like us, human.

A symbol of living in the harmony, protecting each others, even the ripples of life surrounding them, but they shall not fear.


I'm sorry for SBS that I forgot to capture the initial sketch of mine. But it is enough to see the progress. The original photo reference from my uncle that living near Shanghai, included in the SBS as well.

The final result came with 4 swan babies as you've seen above, it's the best composition in my opinion because I felt a little blank while seen the last SBS with just 3 swan babies. Done approximately 3 days of work alongside with my other entries contest & commercial projects.

Thank you for viewing, although the main subject must be a water but the protagonist that mostly painted on my painting was a swan family, it's still wet imho. (5 years and 2254 days ago)
