AUTUMN IN PARIS | SITY SERIES
The Jardin du Luxembourg
These works make me very happy and remind me of travel. I hope that you too.
See all photos. Autumn Paris is beautiful.
I am a traveling artist, I paint with watercolors and oil and prefer plein air painting.
In any journey, it is important for me to stop and feel the moment, to feel here and now.
When I see the beauty of our World, it is difficult and hard for me to just continue to look and admire.
I pick up my brushes and paint. Every moment is unique, it escapes, and I want to save it.
And you can live through the beauty of the world with me and my paintings.
My paintings are a play of light and color.
These lines form a single pattern that one wants to read.
Yes, it’s “to read”, not to look at, because the artist is like a writer , he does not draw but writes ;)
Watercolor is an amazing and complex technique.
Watercolor requires precision, confidence and a lot of experience to make it light, transparent, to convey atmosphere and mood. One awkward or inaccurate movement and the work is spoiled.
Unlike oil and not acrylicpaint , it is impossible to erase and paint here again with watercolor.
On one hand, it is necessary to think over each step in advance and keep in mind a plan of action.
On the other hand, it is necessary to give freedom to yourself and watercolor , so that the watercolor can come out sonorous, light and expressive.
QUALITY OF MATERIALS
I want to assure you that for me , it’s very important not only the visual impression,
but also the longevity of my works. I work only with professional manufacturers of paper and paints.
This protects my paintings from ultraviolet radiation and makes them durable. I use professional paper made from pure 100% cotton from manufacturers such as: arches, fabriano, sunders, canson heritage. And the watercolor of such brands as: daniel smith, sennelier, holbein, mijello.
These are professional colors, their properties are confirmed by ASTM (the American Society for Testing and Materials (the ASTM), the largest independent standards writing body in the world.)
GIFT : A POST CARD
It is very important for me that my works bring joy, happiness, cause a smile and a desire to contemplate and stare. I am always very happy about the new home for my work and always put 2 postcards, you can see them in one of the photos. I sign one, and the second is clean, so that you can deal with it at your discretion) Maybe you like postcrossing? I will be glad to receive a postcard from you)
FRAMING OF WORK
When you receive my work, take it to a baguette workshop to choose a frame to your taste and interior.
I recommend that all watercolor works be additionally included into a passe-partout that you can also choose to your taste.
If you are uncertain when choosing a passe-partout and frame, choose a white passe-partout and a white, not very wide wooden frame. This is a classic design and most of the watercolors look very good in it.
You can see examples on the photos.
