The Painting and Other Stuff

Gouache, 40x60cm

During one month  I did not draw/paint at all. It felt both, relaxing and depressing. Then I decided that I needed help and found new art teacher. Here is the first result of our collaboration. She insisted I had to use gouache (brrr..) and to finish painting in one 3hours session.
Artistic campaign is back to action.
I hope you were fine last month and look forward to see your victories.

Summer in Montenegro

Herceg Novi, Montenegro. Old fortress and boats are the main place of interest in the town.

Montenegro Treasures

Quick sketch with turquoise ink.
From my last year trip to Montenegro, the country of turquoise sea.

Sketching People

I am back to drawing class. And suddenly realize I do not remember human figure's structure at all.. So instead of usual 20 sketches I show only few.

New pen (Lamy Safari)

Pages from the sketchbook. I was experimenting with new fountain pen (Lamy Safari). And made pencil sketches for the birthday present from previous post.

Another birthday present  for a friend of mine, this time in oil.

Sea in the summer.

The birthday present for my friend, "Draw sea in the summer, please" was the request.

EDM 142. Peppers.

When in lack of ideas what to draw - I go to EDM list (link here).
This time it was "Draw something hot". Red Hot Chilly Peppers, was my first answer. Then reality struck back and I drew 2 green sweet peppers before sent them to casserole. 

Tennis Racket

About 20 years ago I played tennis. Last week I found my tennis bag with the racket in the back corner of the closet and decided to revive the past. I close my eyes and see me, athletic and fit, on the court.
No big deal that summer is over, I believe in my sports victories.
Now it is time for cup of  tea and cake.  
Sports records to be!

Irish Impressions 10. Last One.

Quick wet on wet sketch to catch the freshness of colorful Irish hills. 

This is the last one. Thank you for your attention and comments, thank you that you are here.
I have satisfied my wish to memorize the beauty of the place, and now I am ready to turn back to reality.  

Irish Impressions 9. Cliffs of Moher.

Looking at the power and beauty of cliffs of Moher, I realized again how funny and small we are with our problems, fears, wars in front of the eternity of nature. Like sand grains. Very sobering and refreshing thought.

Irish Impressions 8. Howth

 The weather was kind and patient to these restless Russian during the whole trip. Only on the last, 8th day, weather realized that it could not stand  being such a good girl any more and almost washed us away to the ocean. To be exact, the rain stopped to give us 15 minutes to make photos and was back to its best after this short pause.

Irish Impressions 7. Howth

After two hours of persistent attempts to draw the roofs and windows in right perspective, I gave up and took the ruler..
Perspective looks so easy subject in the manual...

Howth is located near Dublin and is known for fresh catch fish and fish restaurants.
