My painting on Amano Chocolate Label

I created the painting for the Amano Jembrana chocolate label - I love Amano Chocolates, they are really high quality and taste amazing. I was actually eating their chocolate while inventing this painting in order to get inspired - it worked :)

Red Nude on Black Original Painting by artist Martina Shapiro

In this video you can watch me create my painting Red Nude on Black, starting with a blank canvas. I paint from my imagination and don't use any models. I start painting directly on an empty canvas, inventing the shapes and lines as I paint. It is a very dramatic and sensual abstract nude painting with a lot of texture and free, expressionist brushstrokes. This nude has a strong 'presence' and almost appears to be moving. I painted her in rich and sumptuous Fauve colors with strong color contrasts of reds, yellows and oranges and with fluid and sensual lines and contrasts of both transparent and shiny black acrylic paint. You can visit my website for more information:

Abstract Girl Painting on paper (Part 2)

Here I continue working on the painting on paper that I started in my video Part 1, adding acrylic colors and finishing the painting. I filmed it by holding the camera in one hand while painting with my other hand - not easy to do :)
