Heidelberg. Watercolor landscape

Heidelberg is one of the picturesque towns in Germany. It wasn’t destroyed in the Second World War period and saved the charm of the far middle ages. While it’s a lively, young center thanks to the world-renowned University.

Here is a city landscape of street of this charming town. Typical narrow street with open cafes and cozy little shops nicely fits in the medieval architecture.
The picture made using watercolor. Its transparent texture fills the landscape with air, shows the thin iridescence of color and modulates the play of light and shadow. The black pen gives some structuring and highlights the softness of watercolor. 

This watercolor graphic landscape could decorate any office or home interior.

I am really fascinated by bold and uninhibited painting technique of this artist. By so small means, with just few strokes of brush he could achieve unequalled visual richness and mastery. Simple and ordinary objects of this sill life look really majestically and monumentally.

  Every part painted carefully and has its own character. A shimmering surface of a jug, scattered plums and bread – there is no the second role subjects, all of them are the «main». The mastery of arranging makes all the composition harmonized and unique.

Still life with cheese and garlic

Still life with cheese and garlic is some kind of modern paraphrase to a breakfast still life of Dutch Golden Age painting. Today it lost an unhurried contemplation, changed the symbolic and spatial relation, but we still could “read” this still life like a secret book, a message.

Still life with cheese and garlic could tell to attentive viewer about the frantic pace of modern life, with all its bustle and fuss. Artist views from above on the objects arranged on the table. Edges of the table a bit tilt to a viewer and show the fragility of existence without pillars of traditions.

The broken bread, crumbled on the surface of the table, hurry-scurry cut cheese, circles of sausage, some olives, crumpled wrapping paper and untouched pear – all of these show a haste, renouncement of morning breakfast rite in attempt to fit into a pace of modern city life.


On the barely touched with morning sun, ultramarine blue tabletop we could see the round cutting board. Its natural wood texture and warm ochre color reminds the Sun on the blue sky.  

Crumpled paper brings some disarray, but it balanced with velvety texture of cheese. Pink cut sausage and clove garlic give some spicy, and gold-green olives add a variety to color palette.

But the main object of the still life is pear. A little bit aloof, separated and thinly painted pear is a symbol of love and health. Warm and gold yellow is pleasing to eye and calms.

This full of meanings and details still life could became a perfect decoration for dining room as well as for cozy interior of a cafe.
Still life is on sale.

Red Gladiolus

I cant stop to admire the variety of sorts and colors of Gladiolus. This time I was inspired by attractive combination of tenderness and expression.

On the blue sky background barely touched with sunlight, brightly highlighted the flaming petals of gladiolus in all its glory. Shimmering with all tones of red – from carmine to orange red, they actually attract the eyes.

This burning riot of red is cooled with lightly cold tender pink silky petals that are supplement to this fire still life a bit of brittleness and delicateness.

Heavy green stem of flower balanced and harmonized the color composition.

This still life could decorate any interior. Especially suitable for the north side of the room, it could became a beautiful bright ascent.
