Mandarins on the drapery

Good Friday evening to everybody! And my new painting for today is oil on canvas etude – Mandarins on the emerald green drapery.  (canvas size 25x25 cm. )

I chose square canvas for this etude and arranged mandarins in the diagonal position. To balance the composition I used the oppositely folds of drapery.
Its deep greens harmonize with saturated orange color of fruits. I used soft blending brush to achieve smooth surface effect on the drapery. Also, emerald green of background is favorably shades the mandarins tone and gives beautiful cold reflex in the shades. To draw texture of fruits I used fine pointed brush, applying pointed strokes. I find these two pieces very impressive because of picturesque leafs on the top. And I took attention to its fine streaks and outlined edges.

Hope you like it! If you are interested please contact to
Have a Nice weekend, and see you again!

Hello my dear friends, today I would like to share with you some spring mood. Here is my new work «Raspberry»

Raspberry, the queen of forest, symbol of kindness, heartiness and prosperity. Even in the garden raspberry smells the forest freshness, attract with color brightness and unique sweetness.
On the wooden bright and warm color tabletop lighted with the sun, highlights the white cup with raspberry. The pleasant texture of wood gives a warmth, coziness, and atmosphere of a sweet home.
Bright and juicy, sparkling with many tints of red, purple, scarlet color, the raspberry remind a summertime, gives a quiet joy and instantly cheers you up. 

Aloofness of the cold white cup barely highlights the whiteness of powdered sugar, which powders the berries. Several berries are arranged on the tabletop. Textured, thinly painted, with pearl dewdrops on the on the glitter surface – they are magnetically attracts the eye. 

Powdered sugar on the surface of tabletop looks like a snow, shining under the sun and emphasizes the coloring and beauty of berries. The green leafs, emerald green with yellow on the front and elegant matt on the back. The warm brown milky color of a chocolate candies reminds ones more about summers hot.

Flower bouquet

Today is 14th February, St. Valentin’s day, and I would like to wish everybody love and romantic mood. And of course, there is no happy Valentin without flowers! Here is my new work “Flower bouquet”. I composed and started to paint it as well in the end of October, but hadn’t  any time to finish it until now, because of a new projects. And now its finally  done. Hope you'll like it!

I picked up this cute flowers of the field near my home in Stuttgart. I like the way that red, pink and yellow pieces harmonized with each other. In the center of composition I placed a bright red poppy.

So I made a focus on it.

For the next step I blocked all surface of canvas with color applying wide fluid strokes.

And final stage is detailing. With fine pointed brush I thinly drew the petals, leafs, apple on the table and nuts.

I used light blue-grey color for background to highlight the saturation of flowers.

Size 40x50cm. Oil on canvas.
