Watercolor with oil pastel accents.

I turned off TV, I do not read news in internet, I try to turn off radio news in the car. I can not stand more evidenciary of the disaster my country is speeding into.
I am so deeply sorry for 295 innocent people  of  MH17.


Flowers in our little country garden inspired this sketch. Watercolor, ink pen, oil pastel.

Almost Done

I was interested to draw aluminum box's texture and the state of almost spent package.
And I can thank "21 days of creativity" for the idea to add old newspaper as a background.

Girls, I can recommend this cream for your hands, L'Ocittane de Provence hand cream, very good list of ingredients in huge box.

Dacha Life

Quick sketch from my dacha life this weekend (dacha - small house in the Russian cities suburbs).

21 Days of Creativity. Day 21.

21 Days of Creativity. Day 21. Last day!
Task is "Make your own book, collection of ideas". I decided to make collage of my works created during this project to keep them all together for future reference.

I liked the project because it was fun.
I liked the project, as it trained me to work daily, without excuses.
I liked it for the freedom and lack of control (no control? - very unusual for my life)).
I liked it for the courage it gave me to post any crap in my blog. To be more myself here.
I liked it for your attention and kindest comments. Thank you so much!

21 Days of Creativity. Days 16-20.

I decided to combine several tasks, hoping this would make my pages deeper and more interesting (to be honest, I have enough of this scrapbooking experience, and try to round it out), so:
Task 16. Use layers.
(And these are the instruction how to make typical scrapbooking page, I did them step by step to decorate my idea of "man and grapes")):
1. Ink cotton swabs and make dots.
2. Blotts from ink bottle.
3. Forget brushes and find some other painting sticks.
4. Paint the top of the page, spray with water and see how free designs form on your paper.
5. Stamps.
6. Add water to ink to reach different shades of grey.
7. Accident lines made by 3 colors.
8. Stencils.
9. Sketch something by hand.
10. Write some text with closed eyes.
11.Draw green leaves from memory.
12. Draw frame.
13. Use white markers.
14. Use black markers.

Task 17. Use stencils (see p.8)
Task 18. Use stamps (see p.5)
Task 19. Relax and enjoy the web pages about scrapbooking.
Task 20. Interpret the ideas you found during relaxing in task 19.

21 Days of Creativity. Day 15

All you need is love, love, love..
Love is all you need..
Task is: Draw what you love, draw about love, draw with love.
It seems I am getting psychedelic..

21 Days of Creativity. Day 15.

Looks like we move at parallel roads - the project and my realization of it.
Here I tried palette knife for the first time when painted Buddha and birds.
6 more tasks to go. Creative freedom feels so good.

Into the Green

My 21 days of creativity were interrupted by trip to the country, where I did some sketches of green world around and some copies of Victorian ornaments (this activity, I like it, shuts my mind and makes steady my hand).


Inspired by the exhibition of Arthur Fonvizin, Russian watercolorist (1883-1973),  which I went to few days ago.
I decided to give a try to thick wall paper. Big mistake. Arches, I am sorry, I promise, I, will never again..

Arthur Fonvizin's airy and breathing art (press here to see).

And quick sketch about Norway waterfalls (15x23cm).

21 Days of Creativity. Day #13.

Task was "Patterns". Find/copy/draw pattern and cover the whole page with it.

I have no idea what is going on here.
I only know that it was impossible and boring for me to methodically draw one and the same pattern.

It should be idea behind any work of art.
