I’m not very good at updating my own website. I exhibit most of my works on Instagram (@studiobuda) and Facebook (Khanh N Huynh).
Lexi is another beautiful model from Portland OR. She has an innocent face and a haunting gaze that is both mysterious and curious. The way she rests on the couch was simply captivating to any painter. I converted the photos that I want to pain to back & white to free my mind from thinking of color and simply let the composition dictates my choices of pigment. I will definitely paint more of her as time permits

I started this series in the beginning of 2016 based on inspiration from a beautiful Portland OR model. They’re all still available. My goals for this year is to keep painting beautiful models and hopefully will grow my collection of beautiful works.
I do keep an active profile with FB (Khanh N. Huynh) and Instagram (@studiobuda) if you want to see more works.

“Mr. Leavitt” 8×10 study oil on board 2014
I saw this man (an artist) at the Oregon Society of Artists meeting in October 2014 and immediately know that I have to paint him. I asked permission to take a picture and transformed the rather mediocre iPhone picture int0 this beautiful portrait.
It was painted straight on Ambersand board without any preparation of the board. I want to keep the white of the board untouched as much as possible. I used the Zorn palette (Titanium white, Payne’s grey, Yellow ochre, and Cad Red medium)
I stopped touching the portrait after 90 minutes or so with the intention to keep the painterly look. I could go on with a softer brush and “feather” out the brush mark and slowly make it photographic. But to me, paintings that look like a photograph is a failure of the artist’s skill and vision.
