In a castle in France, this young girl is writing a letter in her night sheaf. This is painted in the classical realism style. I like to paint people

in a French environment. This is actually painted in a French castle. The style is contemporary realism. My paintings are often reminiscent of famous paintings in their classical look, but I actually get inspired for my subject matters not from a painting but rather from a specific place or a person. (On the original piece you can actually read what is written on the letter.)

A young girl is gazing at the window. She is wearing a lace dress and is surrounded by luxury. As you may have notice from this blog, I like to paint people. This is painted in contemporary realism with many layers of glazing. In the art trend, classical realism is a sure and lasting investment for the art collector.

Blind man's bluff/ Colin-Maillard, classical realism by Dominique Amendola

Copyright by Dominique Amendola

To see a larger picture, click on the image.

This game Blind man's bluff was very popular in Europe a couple hundred years ago. The girl is about to fall and the boy is ready to catch her. The cat adds a comic note. He seems to think: “Is she or is she not going to fall?”
Ce jeux colin-maillard était très populaire dans le passé. La jeune fille est prête à tomber et le garçon est prêt à la rattraper. Le chat ajoute une note
comique et il semble dire: “ Elle tombera ou elle ne tombera pas?”

"Blind man's bluff" is a painting in my series of classical realism artworks. I used a colorful palette and glazing, as I do in all my paintings, in order to create a lasting visual impression. Art buyers (and art lovers) will see a reference to prominent 18th century French painter like Fragonard as I offer homage to his artistic vision through my own art. This artwork is still for sale, so if you’d like to purchase the painting just click on the BUY THIS PAINTING button below.”

L'homme qui lit by Dominique Amendola

Copyright by Dominique Amendola

To see a larger picture, click on the image.

This painting is executed in a traditional way with a grisaille layer. My focus has been to have a great contrast going between pure whites and strong darks. Because i visited the Turner exhibit at the Grand-Palais in Paris, this work is an homage to William Turner. I used many layers of glazing over the grisaille.
A peaceful scene, an eclectic environment full of antiques and things all mixed up in an old house in Paris and an old man simply enjoying a great book.

This painting is painted in plein air.The moulin du roc is an area in Niort near La Rochelle on the West coast of France. This old building was used as a bath house for a time.

Copyright by Dominique Amendola

To see a larger picture, click on the image.

In a bathing Ghat a Brahmin( Hindhu priest) is fetching water in copper pots for his bath in Malkoti South India. Bath time is the fifth painting in my series of India artworks. I used bold colors and powerful brush strokes, as I do in all my paintings, in order to create a lasting visual impression. Art buyers (and art lovers) will see symbolic references to Japanese prints art like
Utagawa Hiroshige and Katsushika Hokusa as I offer homage to their artistic vision through my own art style in a more contemporary fashion. This is also in homage to my preferred artist Vincent Van Gogh.
