And here's a landscape by the same painter:

That is a lovely painting :)

The doughnut looks amazingly realistic. He also painted some really realistic pieces of fruit. What I like about his work is that it is so diverse. For anyone interested, here is a selection of his paintings. Sadly, he died a few years ago :(

you can't just decide out of the blue to climb Mount Everest without any prior experience in climbing and expect not to die in the process

That`s the common trait in the youth - believe you can do anything coz you just want to do it. I was such in my youth and thanks to it, I managed to achieve my life goals and now am a happy fulfilled monkey. :):):)

And from I understand - he died young... I'm sure he could get even better at painting, but unfortunately we will never find out... :(

Yes, but I'm guessing you gave up after that first oil painting attempt, because you didn't like the result... I think that many people do that, because they probably often don't realise that to make good art you actually have to put effort into learning how to do it and into practicing it. It's not like you are born with a talent, you take a brush in your hand and you're just starting to paint and some kind of magic is happening :))

As one of the drawing & painting teachers at our art school told us - becoming a good artist is due to 10% of talent and 90% of hard work.

So, that comment of mine was a way of encouraging those in self-doubt :) If someone wants to try drawing or painting - do it and don't give up. It's just always better to know what you're doing and do some research about what materials to use in order not to get discouraged at the very beginning of your adventure :)

Since the cyclon Paulina :D brought spring weather to Poland it doesn't look like snowy winter will come back, so let us enjoy it at least in some paintings of Polish artists :):

I like the way Jan Grubiński (1874-1945) painted snow - it looks yummy in his winter landscapes - like whipped cream :))

"Zimowe słońce" (winter sun) - oil on canvas, 70.5 x 103 cm:

grubinski

"Zima w lesie" (winter in the forest) - oil on canvas, 98.5 x 142.5 cm):

2

"Świeży śnieg" (fresh snow) - oil on canvas, 72 x 102 cm

3

"Wilk w zimową noc" (a wolf in the winter night) by Alfred Wierusz-Kowalski - oil on canvas, 117,6 x 152,5 cm, after 1900:

Such magic accompanied me in most of my endeavours in my life.... :):): It worked fine except a few cases, including this pathetic painting.

becoming a good artist is due to 10% of talent and 90% of hard work.

Yes, exactly!!! And after that attempt, I realised I could become a world famous artist but didn`t possess enough time and energy to develop my talent into sth bigger !!!! So I gave up with the full knowledge that I was killing a great artist in me!

do some research about what materials to use

When I tried to check my talent, there was no internet. Don`t forget about it.

Well, I guess we all have to make choices in life ;)

You can always try again once you retire though :) Painting is relaxing :))

Yes, I understand. The internet is great in this respect - nowadays you can find any info you need, there are instruction videos on YouTube, you can order art materials in on-line shops, etc. :)))

And another snowy painting...

Marcin Jaszczak is a contemporary artist with an interesting style:

"Zimowy sad III" (winter orchard 3) - oil on canvas, 80 x 70 cm, 2023:
