I was always struck by how beautiful Nena was.
Enough so that I bought a large canvas and decided to paint a portrait.
I was working out of town and carried this large canvas with me, taking up my after hours drawing her face.
Just 'Flynn' doing something other than watching wrestling after work.
It was an easy painting to do. It just seemed natural, and the colors appeared out of nowhere.
The hair just happened.
The hair defined how I would paint.
Large broad strokes, the brush loaded with paint.
The impression of fire and sunset.
A take no prisoners approach to art.
I recently saw the photo I took for this painting.
I'm impressed at how quickly and effortlessly she went from playing a video game to being a model.
Like I said, Natural.

The Wikiman 3.0 Painting 150cm x 100cm 2012-2017 (acrylic,ink and spraypaint on canvas)
I first went to the Equadorian Embassy in 2012 when Julian Assange gave his first speech from there. I drew sketches of the circus with the idea that I was witnessing an historic moment. Over the next year I painted an oil painting from the sketches. I was happy with the overall layout of the piece but never quite got Julians face right so I scrapped the painting and started a digital piece. The second piece wikiman 2.0 was much more like the vision I had originally had but now was missing the serendipity of the original painting. As Julian was still in the same position I decided to continue repainting and refining the portrait until his release. This is version 3.0, where I have tried to include elements of the original oil painting and the digital remake. This painting is currently on show at Window71 Gallery in London
Here's my newest addition to this piece.
What are flowers afraid of?
What makes their heart beat faster, more often?
Where does fear lie?

”White Pigeon” 8”x10” (#406) oil on canvas panel by Lee Gordon Seebach
A True Story
When I lived in Chicago back in the 1970s, I did a lot of painting in what are called
forest preserves. These are areas in and around the city that are city parks but have large wooded areas with streams running through them.
One day, I sat down to paint in one of the preserves on a stream bank with an oil sketchbox on my lap and started to paint a landscape. Almost immediately, a white pigeon flew down to a spot just a few yards away to my left behind a tree root. He just sat there and watched me as I painted. As I worked on the landscape, I thought that he would fly away at any moment, but didn't. So, I slowly reached for an 8
x10 panel, thinking, "OK, if you're going to pose for me, I'll pain
Colored pencils artworks are one of my favorite. Earlier I wasn't even sure that one can create something interesting with this "choldish" material, but how wrong was I:) So, Nearly the whole collection. Enjoy:)
It's a painting I did back in 1988 and one of the few oil-paintings, I've done.
As I completely painted it out from imagination, I tend to call it a self-portrait.
I personally like the shoulder and neck part most.
Thanks to @art-trail and @paolobeneforti for hosting this contest!

And here are my Harry Potter fan arts, gathered together in one post. All mediums in one post. Enjoy:)
Short description who has not seen the cartoon.
Adventure Time is an American animated series about the fun adventures of two friends.

The boy Finn and his friend the dog Jake live in a tree house in the Candy Kingdom in the Ooo Land. When there was a little Finn gave the floor to help everyone who was in trouble, and now he and Jake are constantly striving to meet adventure, they save the inhabitants of the surrounding lands. In the Land of Ooo live Princess Bublum, she rules the Empire of Sweets, th
All that I knew about it was that it was long in the front, tall in the back, and pink all over. The description was too vague-- I would have to see it for myself.
One thing led to another, as things tend to do in life, and I found myself in New Orleans one summer day in 2004 with a paint brush or two and a roller with an extension handle.
A historian had picked the colors, and with twenty five gallons of paint and a couple of helpers, we roasted in the New Orleans daylight restoring the old house. I can still see some of the sunburn from that job. I underbid the job and barely broke even, but actually had a nice time in the strange city of New Orleans while I was there.
With a photograph of the restored house, I then painted it again. It was much cooler the second time in January inside a studio apartment in New York City, and watercolor was the medium. Here is a copy of a print of the painting of the painted house from 2005.
I have read many posts the past few days where people speak about God's inexistence with certainty. As if scientific discoveries on the nature of our existence cover all realms and immediately become evidence of His inexistence.

So, in conclusion to my fan-art series posts I decided also to create separate one for the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings characters. After all it's my favotite theme:) Larer I'll create one more with WoW fan art. All mediums and techniques in one post, mostly digital art. Enjoy:)
Teddy Bear Cholla have a warm and fuzzy name but are anything but cuddly cactus with their sharp spines! They make a great subject for a painting, however, here depicted in early morning light in the Sonoran desert south of Quartzsite, Arizona.

A small pencil study to work out my idea....
Next came a study of the center of interest - where I want the viewer to focus their attention....
Then a watercolor.....
