FAQ

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.
Прайс

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.

'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.'

Send one to all your friends who you think deserve a hug (which, hopefully includes the person who sent it to you)!! You might send it to your enemies as well! It'll really make them stop and think!!! If you don't receive this back, nobody likes you, and they wish you'd stop bugging them! If you receive this back 1 time, open up! Find more friends, enemies, or enemies pretending to be friends If you receive this back 2 times, you're off to a good start! (Unless you sent it to yourself! That's cheating!)
