The Bee.For the Magic Garden 2005

The RedBug  for the SmartTrack 2011

This is a little Bee from the “Magic Garden” animation film. Unfortunately,  I do not have a final copy of the film, but work material only. The film was made by resurfacing method. Many animated films were made by this technique. There is a Bug for earphone packing on the second picture. He is so funny like a Pop-star! They are so different but both of them are bugs!

Lizaveta, ink, paper 30x45 sm 1997

Here is my friend Lizaveta(Elizabeth). She looks very cool at her outfit. In the late nineties we got together for clubbing, laying on the beach, drinking coffee or bear in the cafes of Sochi. I will post more Liza`s portraits and write more stories about her. During my art college studies I accumulated a great number of artworks of my regular model. I think there will be a need to paste several portraits of Liza for showing you different methods and materials. I suppose it will be more convenient and easy to understand when different methods of the drawing are used with the same model.

Jugs whithout whitewash

                                                        Jugs,wood,oil 33.2cm x 53cm 1997

This painting was created in 1997. I took gesso ground wooden board and paint it in several steps. The first layer is monochrome. The last one is colored. It painted thin layer wash. That`s why the first layer is turned visible. This method can be used if you work oil paint or tempera+oil, at the beginning you may use tempera and when it dries out you can continue with oil paint. This method does not require any white lead because the fare gesso ground is used.

The Beginning

The Trees. ink, paper 32x47sm 1999

                                                      The Tree. ink, paper  19x30sm  1996

From now and day after day I will publish a picture or two with some comments. I really hope that you will find my drawings interesting and, maybe, make you imagine something. Drawings of my Studio (actually mine only) are created in diverse ways and reasons, as they belong to different times and different attitudes.
