Pencil sketch

I am exploring pencil sketch using Photoshop. Here is my preliminary result using spherical output from Vray SU.

Wall series

The idea of integrating 3D visualization with traditional media is always a possibility I want to do. I am trying it on this series. I started with Sketchup, editted the wall texture using photoshop, rendered in vray. Later I will use these ephemera for my painting collage together with sketchup styles of plans, elevation, or sections. Still a plan though. For the meantime… the vray render image.

Scent of a woman

Another completed painting using mixed media. I used lots of real sand granules, construction chemiclas like bitumen to protect the steel from rusting and ordinary house paints. I enjoy using architectural materials in painting. I will be looking on the possibility of water proofing materials and sealers.
