Mona Lisa White Flowers. Original Painting - Oil on canvas (gallery - stretched)
I love to paint flowers, so I decided to paint white Peonies. They are beautiful for their fair, quiet, almost whispering tones. All over the world, white represents purity and simplicity.
To prevent flowers from feeling too stark and boring I added texture with thick paint brushwork.
For background I had chosen contrasting colors turquoise blue and orange to add little bit drama.
When I balancing contrasting colors, I always think about quantity, value, and intensity of each color I use. In painting all colors are medium-light-value, and low-intensity.
How to create a certain mood or feeling in painting?
Before beginning any painting I try to ask myself: How can I create a painting that will convey a certain mood or feeling? What do I want to say?
My goal as an artist is to communicate visually in such a way that it will stimulate the viewer’s imagination to see not only with their eyes, but also with their hearts.
I solve the major issues first - values, colors, shapes - and then relating them to one another.
Symbolic meaning of shapes or subjects is very important to me. In this painting the paper boats reminds me childhood. When I think about it, I feel warmth, peace in my heart. Life is too complicated, with this painting I trying to find my way back to my peaceful, worry free childhood.
With the abstract shapes and decorative patterns I express joy and playfulness. White flowers symbolizing innocents, purity.
Window with the beautiful seascape - like mirror of the future, haw I would like to feel. Quiet water gives sense of serenity and peace. Geometric Shapes of houses symbolize order and stability.
I work from my imagination. I always wish to transmit what is pleasant and good for me and I try to recreate this in each painting.
I influenced by everything that moves me.
Which beading threads to choose?
I love to bead with Fire Line thread. It’s prewaxed, strong, flexible and ideal for use with silk seed beads and crystals, which can have sharp edges that cut other threads. They resist fraying and have near-zero stretch.
I may choose a Fire Line for strength; for another piece a Nymo threads - perfect for color match (it comes in 18 colors).
That’s why I decided to make a peace of jewelry “Nature Inspired” simple, with four- color palette( black, cream, brown and grey) and bold abstract patterns.
This necklace looks amazing at winter time with the blacks and grays; summer and spring with the cream, white and grey blue colors; fall with earth tones.
One summer day, after visiting inspiring farm, I fell in love with the sheep, they so cute! Immediately I started painting in my mind.
Couple months later, like a recurring dream, the idea of a sheep painting once again occupied my thoughts. I would like to show, how playful and together elegant sheep are.
Firs I work out several ideas in a number of sketches like this one. I play with composition and color. Then I enlarge it on a piece of tracing paper. After working out all the elements on the tracing paper, drawing and redrawing parts until I am satisfied they will work, I trace the drawing on to a larger piece of watercolor paper.
In this painting I used blue, blue greens, orange, red orange, ochre, burnt sienna, burnt umber.
I imagine this painting in elegant room, with light blue green, tan, sand or light peachy walls, red orange sofa with playful blue, green pillows. Chinese coffee table and elegant light wood chairs.
