 Painted from the live model. 
 For this painting I am not focusing on doing a portrait but instead I am trying to capture the mood and character of my model. Again the style is fluid and carefree. This is painted Alla prima, that is to say in one session with no retouch.

Partha Sarathi, illustrations, oil on canvas, spiritual art by Dominique Amendola

You might be wondering what i have been working on all those days. For the past 2, 3 months, I have been painting new illustrations for the publishing of the Bhagavad Gita. The paintings are quite large and demand a lot of preparation. Many sketches have gone into creating the art. It took me some 3 weeks to work on the Parta-Sarathi sketch. Those are not copies evidently and had to be design from the descriptions in the book. The Bhagavad Gita litterally mean the song of God; the song ( Gita) of Bhagavan ( Bhagavad). 
The Bhagavad Gita is a small part ( the heart ) of the larger work called "The Mahabharatha", an epic who would put homer's illade and odyssey to shame. This epic counts 100,000 verses! Yes you read correctly: 100,000 verses. 
It was a pleasure for me to illustrate this Bhagavad Gita with the new commentaries of Sripad Narasingha Swami. Now the original work will also adorn the monastery in south India. 
If you like to see the paintings, i am including a link for you to see them. They are not published yet, so I protected them with a large copyright sign across the work. Soon after publication, I will post those pieces in this blog.

Farmers market-Selling vegetables, oil painting, impressionism, by Dominique Amendola

There are places were the farmer's market goes on year around. The choice of vegetables is restricted but at least it is in season. In this painting i combined 2 sketches together to make an interesting scene. The woman is anxiously looking at the man's fumbling for his change. Some attractive yellow orange pumpkins on the side resonate with the man's bright yellow jacket. The purple jacket of the other man offers a contrast like a vibration in the middle of a symphony. The background is non descript with a few shadows milling around. The merchant has his back to us and is just a looming figure with no face. This is the art of creating an interesting scene out of a very ordinary setting. Everything is very colorful. The style is impressionism. 
This is not a print but this is an original painting. All my paintings are oil painting on canvas or sometimes on wood. This artwork is painted with museum quality art supplies and will last several 100 years. I've sold over 200 of my original paintings online, so you can buy with confidence. I do this for a living!!

Bangalore street scene, India, oil painting on canvas, impressionism by Dominique Amendola

©This image is under strict copyright to Dominique Amendola and may not be reproduced in any form.
To see a larger picture, click on the image. This painting has been sold at the Time and space gallery.
A typical street scene in South india, with pedestrians, cars, fruits vendors, rickshaws, motocyles, bicycles, the heat, the sun. Actually everybody is so patient. Any Europeans or Americans, would easily loose their tempers a hundred times over. But here in india, there is no road rages, insults exchanges from one driver to the next, or even pedestrians to drivers. The style is impressionist, the technique is worked both with a brush or a palette knife.
