Good sunny day to everybody! This year we have a really hot summer in Stuttgart, and as result, a lot of tasty fruits and berries!! So, my paintings for today are yummy strawberries. Here is some photo of painting process. And believe me, I couldn't wait to finish work and eat them all!^^


So, I did two etudes (both are 20x20cm., oil on canvas/cardboard) in alla prima technique, using thin soft brushes. I created form, using white color of canvas on the overtones, clean open cadmium red on lights and middle tones, and carmine in the shadows. I drew reflex to achieve more volume form. I tried to detail my painting as well, but in the same time give it some freshness, the impression of first glance. Also, I didn't use deep dark colors, even in the shadows, to show the sunlight and air in the picture.

For this painting I choose a little warmer coloring. One of the berries is cut in two parts, and I depicted its wet surface and water drops.


Both of paintings are on sale. If you are interested, please contact to

The branch of an almond tree

This beautiful blooming branch I found under the almond tree in April and soon made a watercolor etude. I hid it in the cabinet and absolutely forgot about that. And two days ago I accidentally found this work and now pleasured to share.
So, for that picture I chose watercolor, not oil paints. This branch reminds me Japanese prints with cherry blossom theme, so I decided to realize this work in graphic.
Firstly, I made a pencil sketch to explore the details of flowers form. I used a soft sharp pencil.

This graphic artwork perfectly fits to any interior. Bedroom or living area. Some examples:

And here is one more picture - watercolor etude. I applied dark deep blue color for background to highlight tender tone of flowers. 

Both artworks are on sale.

Dragon Flowers (Snapdragons)

These exceptional flowers called dragon flower (also known as snapdragons) I bought in flower shop near the house and decided to paint it as soon as possible.   

Although, dragon flowers are the wildflowers, I find them very fine and elegant. These really amazing small flowers have very interesting unusual form of petals, with color gradient from saturated pink to white. 

So, I painted this middle size etude from nature. As usual, for background I used light blue sky tone, for flowers I applied carmine, titan white, lemon yellow and emerald green. This time I didn’t stop on detail so much, I tried to achieve an impressionistic effect, some sense of air and light  in the picture.

Orange lily

Nice summer day to everybody! Here is my new painting Orange lily. Oil on canvas on cardboard, 25x25cm.

I really like the deep orange color and geometric harmony of these swanky flowers. It looks like splash of orange sunlight, highlighted with juicy green leafs. I applied freer alla prima technique, using soft fluid stroke. Strokes are lightly blended one into another and built up form of flowers and leafs. For background I applied broken short strokes, to achieve impressionistic effect of air. Picture is signed on the right bottom.
