Som unfinished artworks (oil painting and colored pencils)

The result of PhD examination was published last week and I was rejected, unfortunately. I know that I am a talented student, the only reason for rejecting me and other genius is political. I was too sad, desperate. I wish I could continue my studying. So nowadays I prefer painting and painting.

These are some unfinished art works which I am painting.

The first one is The Chain of hearts. This is one of my desires that all people respect  each other.

Natalie Portman’s Portrait: (finished) Colored pencil Painting


Natalie Portman's Portrait : colored pencil (23cm*18cm)

I finished it, finally. Because I am  accustomed to paint portrait alive, I can not gain the similarity when I paint by help of a photo.

For next week, I will paint some hearts and flowers with oil. And I will show you my fist pieces of oil painting which I have learnt at class.

My dear teacher asked me why did not you study art! why did you study Textile engineering!!??? I smiled. I told her that because of  my parents. They thought studying mathematics, physics, chemistry, … would be more helpful to have a good life! And I obeyed them! 

Also my supervisor ( my dear teacher at university) asked me why do not you continue art? why do you want to study PhD degree????  I told him art and painting are just for my heart! Let them remain for my hearts forever! I like studying too! let it remains for my brain forever!

When I was a child, I was really interested in painting portraits. However, I am keen on painting flowers and hearts nowadays! I can hardly find a portrait to paint. But for practicing it, I started painting Natalie Portman’s portrait with colored pencil last week and it is unfinished. I wanted to describe how I painted it step by step, so I  upload some picture but I can not explain it as well as a native english speaker!

Imaginary Roses :watercolor painting

 Whenever I paint a rose, that reminds me “Antoine de Saint-Exupéry” and his “Le Petit Prince “.  I wish he was alive and I could give him a painting of a Rose.

 My teacher asked me to paint some imaginary roses, and I did it today with watercolor.
