Near my village, after fields-harvest for feeding cows in winter. Watercolors.
I think the ay you use the colour is brilliant! Interesting point about the harvest. Your meadow must be quite high up as we have just started to get the corn in. Although we are at sea level we are a few hundred miles north of your location.
I agree upon colours! And the composition – it’s so beautiful.
How do you do it? please teach us, and I promiss I’ll read all of your cousin’s novels!
Your paintings blow me away. Truly inspirational.
Beautiful blue and gold color scheme! And this time of year when the fields are being harvested smells so good—especially during summer nights.
ZAZA, the cousin, if you mean Michail Boulgakov, was one of very few great writers of the world along with Marcell Proust, James Joys,Gabriel Garsia Marques and Nabokov, so checked it out anyway.:)
And watercolor is beautiful. Please, make more movies about the process, its enjoyable by itself.
Agreed with Nikira wholeheartedly. It’s too bad that half of Boulgakov’s writing genius would be lost in translation for those who (for better or for worth) are not native Russian-speakers…
Pascal – you’ve done your magic again. Wonderful painting.
Leo, my daughter read ” Master and Margarita” in English, she cant read in Russian and she was shocked by the beauty of this book, even saw 10 disks movie with subtitles, they made in Russia couple of years ago.:-)
Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
I’m thinking… Pascal Boulgakow should paint scenes from Boulgakov’s “Master & Margarita” – that would be seriously AMAZING. I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it.
Hey, Pascal… Considering your new urge to paint cats – there’s a very special cat (named “Begemot” AKA “Behemoth” AKA “Hippopotamus” in Russian) in that book.
Thanks a very lot for all comentaries.
Well, I went once in Moscow and after a few days at the Red Cross (they saved the archives about all the names and dates of birth), and as well at the embassade, I found no track about my grand-father, neither the famous Michail Boulgakov. So I gave up and I’m pretty happy anyway.
Ziza asks me to teach… but I’m a real beginner in painting.
I started two year ago. Never draw or paint before.
But my work is professional photographer, may be that helps me by the way.
I just try to show a place (always a landscape) and paint it the more abstract I can with watercolors.
I would like to do it more abstract with transparency than now, but I don’t manage it for the moment.
I don’t like abstract painting at all. All these paintings with a red point and a blue square, that makes no sense for me.
But real places we can reconize, painted with an abstract way is my aim.
Then I try to keep this rule about blue/cold colors blured in the background // warm colors and strong contrast at the foreground. Nothing else.
I’m still on the way to get my real own tendency of painting.
I think to be ready next year.
But I have fun anyway with watercolors.

Let’s wait and see.
