When you are painting something that requires detail work like this Norwegian Folk art design you need to focus. I have been painting this piece for quite awhile due to so much interruptions it has gone unfinished from week to week. Finally I finished it yesterday.

These are some of my regular students who came to learn to paint various design. Some likes doing scenery whilst others are more to flowers and animals. I presumed everyone has their own interest as long as it makes them happy painting it.
This student used to learn painting from me when he was 12 years old but he had stopped painting for a few years to concentrate on his PMR and SPM. But now he is on his break from college and decided to learn painting again doing Russian Folk Art (Zhostovo) on a large wooden chest. He did quite a good job with it despite being just a teenager.

Here are some students from various places including a visitor from Thailand who had learned to paint on various surfaces. Most of them had the intentions to learn to paint for such a long time. Only now that they had the opportunity to try out and of course they enjoyed it. It does not matter whether you have the talent or not as long as you have the interest and willing to make time for it.

This is a student learning the Advanced technique of Norway traditional folk art design - Rosmaling. It is quite a tedious process in which you have to use a lot of brush stroke technique. Majority of the painting is using the filbert brush.
Recently I had a photo shoot with Majalah Keluarga for their upcoming pre-Hari raya issue. The theme is to paint various jars for Kuih Raya. So I did this four different jars using different techniques and paints to get different effects for each. If you interested with the details wait for it to come out. May be for June 2012 issue. It will be in the DIY section.
