Paintings by Ptak Evelyne
I am always entranced by classical paintings, especially the great mastrer’s paintings like Vermeer, Rembrandt , da Vinci, Veronese…
I was a boat people who had fled VN in 1980, when I was 25 years old. I have endured seven attacks from pirates during the flight and I still suffer from PTSD. I had difficulties to concentrate and to memorize. I had nervous breakdown and I have been hospitalized in psychiatry twice. Because of that, I could not continue working.
Doctors encouraged me to have some creative hobby. I have a fascination for old masters’ paintings and as I have a sister who painted well, and I admired her very much, I naturally choose painting and I have enrolled your drawing courses in 2013.
I love painting portraits, I paint regularly but I am aware of the challenge ahead. I still don’t master the rules and techniques of portrait and anatomy painting. I think old masters academy can help me fill in the gaps.
Old masters academy provides outstanding art education based on the heritage of old masters. I think I can learn the know how of Renaissance oil painting methods almost forgotten nowadays. So that I can greatly improve my painting techniques which are very poor.
Winning the old masters academy course will give me access to video lessons, rules and techniques of classical painting, advice, correction and encouragement from tutors like Vladimir London and Natalie Richy.
I am a pensioner living in France. Unfortunately I have no followers to vote for me but I sincerely hope that the public will do it, if they appreciate my paintings.
I love all your paintings, my dear cousin. ?❤️
I like the fringe backlighting. The images in front are in shadow and the color contrast is subtle.

All of your paintings make me think of the earthly paradise because of the satisfaction and happiness shown on the character’s faces. I love the peaceful atmosphere “spreading” from your paintings. You capture those little moments in your artwork 🙂
And I love all the girl faces. They look so real.
Thi Hoa Nguyen says
Simplicity, clarity and serenity….these are special characters of Phuong’s paintIngs. I really feel refreshed when I look at them. The lights, the colors and the expressions of these little girls reflect a joy of life, although the technique is still naive …Sincerely hope that you will win the course.

It’s amazing to see how paintings reveal the inner person of the painter. Through these paintings, I got the impression of your yearning for joy and peace which were robbed from you on the way to find freedom. The painting with the smiling girl in brown especially touched me. Her surroundings and clothing are dark but the utmost joy she feels from the inside is so obvious in her radiant smile. And the light and it’s source gives me the feeling of purity and simplicity. I congratulate you for your success in conveying and conjuring emotions through your art works. Hope you will win the course.
Phuong Ptak says
Thank you. You are very kind. It is true that I have had ups and downs but I never give up hope.
I like colorful and peaceful chidren’s faces. It is a pleasure and a challenge for me to express their inner feelings and emotions by painting.

You are a talented artist! I love all of your paintings. My most favorite one is the one with the little girl on the monk outfit. I love how realistically the light in the background lights the detail of her hair and her face is so joyful. She looks like ano angel!
