Traditional oil painting on canvas, all made by hand no brush. Mermaid and Egyptian Woman in a battle. Us humans have always battled each other, for different reasons, however the Mermaid is still managing to stay calm and still. And that should apply to our life, if someone attacks you, you should stay calm, as you are not in control of how others act, think, or behave. And if you stay still and calm, they will only attack themselves. Traditional oil painting takes a lot longer than a digital paint, however, the feel of accomplishment and energy you achieve in the end in priceless. I do art because I love the process, so if a paint will take long due to being traditional, good, as o love the process. And I try to do art I want to seeI varnished a lot in the end so it looks quiet glossy
Hello everyone, thanks for visiting our site. The lockdown is nearly over, hopefully, they will not extend this lock down for longer, and give us the opportunity to work. I have been working on my traditional oil painting every so often. In the era of digital art, I still go back to the roots of traditional painting as it requires you to think more and being careful with every move you make, as we do not have a delete button on a traditional canvas, it’s in my opinion similar to tattooing, as in every decision you make it leaves a mark in the canvas, so the thought process is at larger scale compare to digital painting. In this oils painting, I had the idea of a mermaid fighting an Egyptian female warrior, I’m a big fan of Egyptian culture and fantasy art. Keep an eye for more updates on the final complete image of this oil painting.

This Buddha was a part of Andy’s sleeve. The outer of his arm was the realistic Coy Carp as you can see in the picture bellow. Working with Andy is a mix of ideas and emotions. We have the same philosophy about life, however we are open to new ideas, and we feel free to discuss with an open mind. All these details add to a positive vibe in the sessions, and it contributes to a better outcome on the tattoo. Every time I see an image of a Buddha, it reminds me of meditation, and meditation for sure helps us with concentration. So if you have a job where it requires concentration, I would for sure recommend meditation, it’s a good habit to have, you mite struggle at first, but if you stick to it, like anything in life, you will start seeing the benefits of it. I had a realistic approach to this tattoo, with the artistic freedom Andy gave me, also contributed to the end result. Thank you Andy, I look forward to see you and have deep conversations with you.
