From the pictures you posted.

Rear of engine oil leaks are probably valve cover/ half moon seals. But also look at the 2 big aluminum plugs. These will leak oil through he threads if not tight enough. I take them out and clean the threads in the head and on the plug put sealer on both and reinstall.

Picture with the red arrow I would say is the distributor o ring. This is often the most over looked source of an oil leak. They get hard then start weeping oil from underneath the dist. clamp.

Post a few more pictures taken directly of the sides and front of the engine.
