Most of these painting are 11×14 format. Oil on boards.
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.

“Still Life with Red Vase” oil on canvas 16×20, 2013. This one took about 2 hours or so. This week has been quite slow for me in term of new paintings and practices. We’ve just welcome a new member to the family so it’s quite challenging to keep up with the baby not sleeping at night, crying, pooping every 2 hours or so. I did a lot of sketching at night though.
Thank you for reading my blog

“Buda” Oil on 11”x14” board, 2012.
This is a painting of my son BUDA at 9 months old. We were in Haiwaii for a medical conference (hence the flowery shirt). As his mom was trying to take a photo of us, a ray of sunlight hit his face. .. and the reaction is priceless. A few months later, when my painting skill was slightly improved, I sat down one early morning and paint this cute little guy in 90 minutes. I love the dripping oil paint and facial expression. This painting inspired me to paint 100 small alla prima portraits in a short period of 6 months. Project 100 Portraits (which is now completed) help me tremend0usly in term of speed and technical skill. I now face much less fear and self-doubt when I sit down in front of my easel. I know some artist would look down on the art of the portrait regardless whether it is painted from life or with the help of a photo. However, finishing a 11×14 alla prima portrait in 90 minutes is quite a difficult task since one have to figure out the composition, color choice, and accuracy of subject in a very short time. Because of this intense training, I now no longer use any mean of measurement when I paint (there no time for it) . This activity actually trains my brain and eyes to judge value, shape, and color a lot better than I was one year ago.
Buda is now one and a half years old. He is changing everyday.
