I paint from nature and I bow before the beautyand the forces of the Nature and the simple,ordinary things around us.Try to catch the spirit of each material and totouch the thing beyond reality.
I usually see something I like, and the composition just becomes visible to my inner eye. Very often the composition is ready when I see it and I don’t change anything. Don’t like cluttered compositions; I prefer something simple, sometimes minimalistic and the same time rule breaking.
I often touch objects to feel them. Sometimes I observe a landscape for a long time before I start painting it. Suddenly I feel that I know what I have to do, that I know the objects.It feels as they trust me. Sometimes I paint fast, sometimes very slowly; the very work determines it.
I want my paintings to reflect everything I see or feel, to bring me closer to the essence of things.
Technically don’t follow any rules.I’m not that interested in the technical part; emotions are much more important.Try to paint every new painting in a way that is different from the previous. Love discovering new methods.Thus I discover new opportunities.Watercolor has enormous large range of expressions.I combine many different techniques in the same painting.I use different types of paper depending on what I want to paint. Love to work on vintage and handmade papers.
I fell in love with watercolor many years ago and dedicated all my time to this beautiful, versatile and really difficult medium.
