Hello! Thanks that have visited my page! :hug:



1)Как давно я рисую и где я этому научилась?
Рисовать я начала, как только мне в руки попали ручки и карандаши.
В 2007 году я отправилась в первый класс в художественной школы.
Сейчас я продолжаю учиться рисовать. Впереди еще долгий путь.

1)For how long are you drawing and where did you learn it?

I’ve started drawing as soon as I got pencils and pens in my hands. In 2007 I went to 1st form of art school. Now I continue to learn drawing. There is a long way ahead.

2)Какие материалы я использую?
Я пользуюсь ленинградской акварелью. У меня сборный набор: то есть, в его составе есть много разных цветов, которые я подбирала по отдельности.
Я пользуюсь такими кистями, как белка и колонок.
Очень редко я использую синтетические кисти.
Я не обращаю внимания на красоту или что-то в этом роде. Я заинтересована только в качестве и удобстве применения. Кисть должна быть упругой. Это может звучать глупо, но для меня кисти, как меч для воина. Это продолжение моей руки, часть меня.

Если Вы хотите получить яркие красочные акварели- нужно сразу научится писать чистыми, открытыми цветами, лучше всего по сырой бумаге в один прием( аля-прима ). Однако стоит помнить, что более реалистические картины получаются, если смешивать краски с землянистыми и охристыми цветами. Яркость зависит и от бумаги. Лучше всего использовать бумагу фирмы BOCKINGFORD или Fabriano (эту бумагу использую я, поэтому и рекомендую), в любом случае для акварели лучше выбирать бумагу 200-300 г\ м2. Немного яркости и контраста можно добавить и в фотошопе.

2)Which materials do you use?

I use “Leningrad” watercolours from “NevskayaPalitra” art paints factory. I have a collected set, it means that it has many different colours hand-picked individually by me. I use squirrel and weasel brushes, hardly ever synthetic brushes. I don’t pay attention to beauty or something like this. I’m interested only in quality and easement of using. Brush should be resilient. It may sound silly but a brush for me is like a sword for warrior. It’s a continuation of my hand, a part of me.

If you want a bright colorful watercolor-need to learn to paint clean, open color, the best on wet paper in one step (alla prima).
However, it is worth remembering that a more realistic picture obtained if mixed with ocher paint colors. The brightness depends on the paper.

It is best to use paper companies BOCKINGFORD or Fabriano (this paper I use, so I recommend), in any case, better to choose watercolor paper 200-300 g\m2. A bit of brightness and contrast can be added in Photoshop.

3) Использую ли я фото или рефы, когда я рисую?
Что касается рисунка карандашом, то да. Я часто срисовываю людей с фотографий, но добавляю в рисунок много деталей, изменяю взгляд, некоторые черты лица, позу, костюмы, фон. В итоге получается что-то значительно отличающееся от изображения на фотографии.
Что касается пейзажа - признаюсь сразу: вокруг меня нет таких красивых и эффектных мест, а посвящать все свое свободное время пленэру просто нет возможности. Пока нет. Но тем не менее, почти каждый день я наблюдаю красивые пейзажи из окна. Особенно утром или вечером. Это вдохновляет меня, я пишу небо с натуры. Деревья или горы, тропа или речка: это либо плод фантазии, либо срисовка с фото.

3)Do you use photos or references for drawing?

As for pencil drawings, then yes. I often take rubbings from people photos but I add a lot of details, change gaze, some face lineaments, pose, costumesand background. As a result I get something that significantly differs from photo.
As for paysage, I confess immediately: I don’t have such beautiful and spectacular places around me, and spending all my free time for en plein air is just impossible. However, almost every day I see beautiful landscapes from my window, especially in mornings and evenings, and it inspires me. I draw sky from nature, and trees or mountains, passages or rivers – all that are either a fruit of imagination or sketched from photos.

4) Что это за стиль в моих работах?
Я могу охарактеризовать свой пейзаж как реализм с примесью импрессионизма. Мои идейные вдохновители : Hong Leung, Абе Тошиюки( Abe Toshiyuki), Канта Харусаки (Kanta Harusaki), Роланд Палмаэртс(Roland Palmaerts) и Z. L. Feng. Ознакомившись с картинами этих прекрасных художников, вы сможете понять в каком направлении я двигаюсь. Я не хочу никого копировать. Я ищу себя. Свой стиль.

4)What is the style of your works?

I may characterize my paysages as realism with a touch of impressionism. My ideological inspirers are: Hong Leung, Abe Toshiyuki, KantaHarusaki, Roland Palmaerts, Liu Maoshan and Z. L. Feng. Familiarized with works of these great artists, you will understand in which direction I am moving. I don’t want to copy someone. I’m looking for myself, for my style.

5) Принимаю ли я заказы?
Да, принимаю. Напишите мне письмо.

5)Do you take orders?

Yes, I do, just send me a note. Here’s pricelist:

6) Какие советы я могу дать начинающему акварелисту?
Я советую каждому много рисовать и больше практиковаться. Нужно приучить себя рисовать стабильно, если не каждый день, то раза 3-4 в неделю точно. Это необязательно каждый раз картина с сложным продуманным сюжетом- просто делать упражнения, изучать новые стили, копировать других акварелистов, искать себя и то, что понравится рисовать больше всего. Экспериментировать с бумагой и красками, с цветовой палитрой. Иногда, достойные идеи будут приходить и в процессе такой практики.
Акварель- достаточно капризный и деликатный материал, он не терпит ошибок. Иногда их можно исправлять акрилом или гуашью, но истинная ценность произведения- именно в чистой, приближенной к идеалу технике, к которой и следует стремиться. Нужный навык придет с практикой.

6) What advice can you give to a budding watercolourist?
I advice everybody to pain a lot and practice more. You should teach yourself to pain constantly, if not every day, then 3-4 times a week for sure. It doesn't have to be a painting with complicated circumspect plot every time - you just need to do excercises, learn new style, copy other watercolourists, look for yourself, paint your favourite things the most, experiment with paper, paints and colour pallette. Sometimes the most deserving ideas come during this practice.
Watercolour is pretty capricious and delicate material, it doesn't endure mistakes. Sometimes you can correct them with acrylics or gouache, but the true value of painting lies exactly in clean, nearly ideal technic, for which you should seek. The proper skill will come with some practice.


I Want paint it...

'Too much beauty,' Zenas gasped when he went to the next realm. 'I am half blind. I see flowers and waterfalls, majestic trees, a city of silver, but it is all a blur. The colors run like water. It's raining now, and the wind smells like perfume. This surely is Moonshadow, where Azura dwells.'

So... it's my job to contest

GDD Contest: To tell a story - 5 days left!   


GetDailyDeviations  is hosting an exciting contest for you ALL to participate in! We hope you're all very eager to create and submit your entries, please read the description, rules, and guidelines below!
To Tell a Story:
The theme of this contest is to tell a story, which is vague, but also very to-the-point. All artwork tells a story whether it intends to or not, as we all interpret what we wish to, when we see it. Your goal for this contest is to create a piece of art, with a specific story in mind. It can be your story, the story of someone you know, it can be fictional, it can be short, it can be sad, it can be ha

And I have to tell a story.

This history of the Earth and about the Earth.
Wild Architecture - silent keeper of secrets of the past and only a shadow of the present.
Golden arches and falled stones: absorbed nature. Nature is stronger than the inhabitants of these forgotten places. Tree roots hugging cut stones and they again become uncouth or destroyed.

Presumably, the remnants of once upon a time great and extremely wealthiest city, built on the rock.
Here lived a mysterious nation that did not left behind them any information.
Today, all that remains of nation - is the celestial palaces and artifacts found inside. Treasures of this deserted place often attracts wayfarers, who traveling across the sky in wondrous balloons. After all, only by air ships can get to the ruins of the once great city.

In the grand Heavenly Pavilion found a home wild animals and birds. :)

Image of the scene with a mysterious, forgotten, ancient site - the embodiment of shelter dreamers from distant lands. Me and many other people.
We can think about a knight's castle times of King Arthur or the magic sword that makes us strong.
Different things, events, cities, which no longer exist, or everything that can come up people.
And this is the story of this picture: History of the Earth and about the Earth.
It exists in
my mind, as part of the Great story. A Great story that I tell  using watercolors.

Это был чертовски сложный перевод для такого нуба, как я) Так что, если кто-то нашел ошибки или смешные моменты- сообщите мне, не дайте опозорится и ударить лицом в грязь :D

Heavenly fortress by AnnaArmona
Heavenly fortress
Watercolor with an emphasis on space.))

I like to dream about the strange celestial objects that could circling near the ground, as the moon or the sun.
And dimensional soaring pieces of land in the sky ...
