According to a master class by Sergei Kurbatov. 28x38
Noisy options for this work on Instagram and good! But I just woke up and remembered about her.
More than a week, WEEKS !!! I wrote a copy of my still life for the exhibition iws_sare_gallery_moscow in February. The original was written in 3 days ... Damn, this turned out to be much more difficult with watercolor than with oil! And the monitor is in trouble. After my slightly settled relations with Sanders, I took arsh - for reliability and ... Arsh does not consume color at all! It turned out, probably, my brightest “tear out my eyes” work. As I saw with the backlight of the monitor, I transferred it to the sheet. From now on, the topic of the absorption of pigment by cotton turned upside down for me - when you rely on the fact that the paper harmonizes and calms everything, but no! And then by ...

Oh !!! Here she was able to overcome the cotton baohong !!!
Moving to Moscow. Gatherings, vanity, bags with things - once I really liked it ... The so-called "Suitcase mood". Now, with horror and panic, I count the days before departure. Either too much now has to collect junk (husband, children, cat), or I wound up at the end. And in principle, it’s not bad sometimes to shake oneself and change the shell, but only without these endless tedious gatherings!


The crown of all this fuss was that I submitted 2 works to the exhibition and both of my works were approved ... But I managed to forget one work in the Crimea ... How so?!? A couple of days, dumbfounded and angry at yourself "beloved." Now I'm sitting and trying to make a copy. The second consecutive copy of their own work! It turned out to be wildly complicated. It is much easier from nature or from a photo ... In general, it is impossible to make an identical copy - this is the whole charm of watercolor, but what to do with the exhibition? There were a couple of days left for a decision ... The fussy and tiring one turned out to me last year. And its ending is appropriate

Anastasia Molchan’s workshop @anamauchan . The reverse side of the once-tortured arshik on this training study behaved significantly different! I am more and more convinced that the paper in gluing is of better quality than in sheets. Well, at least so it seemed to me once again. The home Internet, however, let me down and I tried to view the broadcast on the phone screen - fi-fi! Plus, the air was torn, hung, and as a result, I took the colors of Anastasia, opened a photo of her daughter and tried to make in her style. I really like the result. What do you say?

When I was in music school, the names of musical works fascinated me: suite, nocturne, prelude, study, sonata, etc. Everyone is so different, with a different character and mood ... Fuck yourself a kind of sonata to stupidity, or rather to the satisfaction of the teacher. I experienced something similar with the next still life - hollowed to the point of insanity. In principle, I understand that this is how the real work happens,

I sat and stupid for a long time - I could not think of a name for this work ... Something strange is happening in my work. Usually I know very clearly what I want and fairly soberly evaluate the results. Desires and results do not always find a compromise, but I still understand whether the work was successful or not. And then a stupor ... I submitted documents for joining the Union of Russian Watercolorists and Olga Petrol @olgapetrol recalled my work “And this will pass” (or simply “Storm”) as expressive. She really is and, by the way, won the Audience Award at the Biennale in Alushta last year. And looking at this still life, I wondered - WHERE is my expression?!? I feel hostage to Sanders - his soft glamorous overflows confuse me. Or maybe I still haven’t really learned how to write on it? What do you prefer in my performance - soft glamorous works or expressive brushstrokes?
