2017 has been a slow one for me in term of painting new work. My two boys (Buda & Dalai) are growing fast and they need more attention. Well, something gotta give, right? Plus, I bought a violin a few months ago and got addicted 😉 – Good stuff !
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
MODEL: Olive Glass.
These paintings are inspired from a wonderful Portland OR model. The “Olive” series continue to grow. I wonder if they’ll ever be seen in public since figurative works are not a hot commodities here in the Portland area (been turned down by many galleries and I’ve given up trying).
I updated my website once every 2 months now. The main platform that I show my work now is FaceBook and Instagram. Find me! (FB: Khanh N. Huynh, Instagram: @studiobuda)
More to come. Thanks

These are painted from the New Master Academy stock. I’m still working to finish my goal of completing 100 nude paintings from this online Academy. May be I should splitting even 50 males and 50 females… may be
It was New Year Day (2015), and I decided to spend most of 2015 making juicy delicious small nude figure painting such as these. I have 100 boards prepped up and ready to paint. I have been painting one of these figure each day and will keep the same speed until the boards are all painted. Then, God knows what I’ll be painting next (may be another 100 of still life) I’m still experimenting with new painting technique and perfecting my current method. Still considering myself a student and not a professional painter, my focus is mostly technique oriented. The “artsy” stuffs, I believe they will come naturally as one paints pass 2000 paintings/studies. Thank you for reading Khanh N. Huynh, MD
I’ve been quite busy with painting new works for my upcoming show in September 2014 and have not been able to write new post for the website. Here are two of my paintings from today session 7/19/14.
Still life is not my strongest area. However, I continue to practice to overcome any weakness. These small paintings are painted quite quickly and impulsively. I randomly select objects from my growing collection of “junks” from garage sales and Goodwill stores. A trip to Home Depot or the Farmer market will provide me with amazing colors (flowers and other oddities). From there, it’s just a matter of arranging objects, pushing colors, and letting my mood dictate the flow of each painting.
Thank you for reading.
