Diner on Route 66 (2010), oil on canvas, 18 x 18, $850

When our twins, Rachel and Luke (pictured), were in high school, we took a road trip across the country one summer. While visiting the southern rim of the Grand Canyon, we spent a couple of nights in Williams, Arizona, and ate breakfast at this diner.

The Oil Paintings of Andrei Belichenko, (by Vincent Mars)

Andrei Belichenko is a Russian painter born in 1974 in Kazakhstan. I believe that the black-haired woman who appears in many of his portraits is his wife. Visit his official website: http://www.abmbart.com/.

I were wiggling my toes in the dirt and the sun was shining, but it’s raining and it’s cold. So instead I will enjoy the blossoms and shades of green from my window.”

Very nice painting! :)

Naomi writes, “Today’s going to be a little lesson on painting flesh. I’m still working on Emma and going to be painting her ankles and feet. She’s sitting on a rock on the beach and the reflection of light on her skin renders a slightly blue purple color on her skin. She’s a red-head and has very fair skin too. The rocks she sitting on, will be darker shades of blues and purples with light reflecting from the sky, sunlight and water. The orange u see, is the under-painting.

The base color for flesh is Ultramarine blue and Burnt Sienna plus white. So mix up a pile. To warm it up add a dash of Transparent red Oxide. This is a very strong pigment, so just a tiny bit at a time. For the tender flesh areas, add a dash of lemon yellow to the base color.

Mix up a pile of  Permanent Alizarin and ultramarine blue to cool the flesh tone down mix in the purple-blue color to the base, really depends on the light. For dry brush scumbling I use a pink mixture of permanent alizarin plus white to give the skin it’s luminosity. The tips of the toes are going to be a red pink tone because of the blood flow. For the veiny area add a little lemon yellow with a hint of green into the flesh base.

I use a mix of burnt sienna and ultramarine blue for my darks and also a dark mix of Viridian and Permanent Alizarin.

Now I’m set and ready to paint. I begin with the shadow under her right foot, then paint in the red areas on the soles of her foot with Transparent red oxide, cad red and Alizarin mixed in with some flesh tone.  On the lighter tones I added a dash lemon to the flesh and the pink red tone on the top of her foot is a little cad red and alizarin mixed into the flesh base. I used lemon yellow for highlights. I blended the shadow color under the foot and painted in some of the surrounding rock.

I wanted this foot to kind of blend in with the background as it’s not part of the focal point. So subtlety is the key. “
