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

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

“Dalai Huynh” oil on canvas board, 11×14, 2014
These two paintings originate from random photos we took of our kids. Dalai is now 9 months old, a rambunctious little monster, full of energy. Buda is quiet and intelligent. They’re my favorite models. Since they’re my kids and I am quite familiar with their face, getting the likeness is quite easy even with short 1 hour warm-up exercises. Paint application using a palette knife has been utilized more in my painting these days. It’ll be a while before I can command the knife at will. It adds texture to a painting, but one must use it appropriately and strategically otherwise it is just another pretentious piece of paint applied where a brush mark should be visible.
