The drastic societal changes as a result of covid have allowed me to spend much more time on working on landscapes in oils and developing my techniques and understanding of the medium.
Since December, I have been experimenting with more figurative works.
I have mostly focused on southwestern and southern California landscapes in pastel.
September 19, 2015
My first plein air event with exhibition at the Los Angeles County Fair paintout.
I decided to deepen my dedication to my art by increasing the number of days per week for painting (which of course meant spending less time at my regular job). This greatly increased the number of sketches and finished work produced.
In February of 2014, www.chomchaiart.com was created.
Later in 2014, I produced my first significant set of oils (much of which included sketches and revolved around the Southern California landscape).
2011 to 2013
My passion for art pushed me to begin producing works more regularly (with at least several works created every year).
This period was characterized by acrylic, inks, mixed media, and watercolor.
Prior to 2011
Occasional short periods of production resulted in small collections of work every few years. Life (school and work, mostly) would get in the way of art.
Primarily pieces were executed in watercolor, although I did experiment with other media like pastels, colored pencil, and acrylics
