Sketch before breakfast in a process. Watercolor. View from the porch.
The idea of music and musicians was always very close to my heart. My senior work in my first college was composition Music, very experimental and sort of breaking rules. I was signed to go to draw at rehearsals and concerts in Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra for a month or two. Even had a crush on young violinist. Here I used ink and two Kuretake brush pens for color.
Celebration. Color only on ties, hinting that joy and emotions does not have to be shown on the surface, but inside, lightening up in faces and souls. Background – a little abstract, indicating community: people and houses.
Used 2 inks and couple of Kuretake pens for color.
Chair. Ink, Uranus, Pentel. I have an idea about water brush, how to make universal water brush. Who should I talk to? Really want that brush.
Buckets.I took limited art supplies with me and surprisingly I liked it. I used ink, Uranus pen and Pentel Multi pencil, called “bible highlighter” sometimes, 8 colors pencil.
Dancing men. Recently one man told me how upsetting is that many photographers and artists interpret life of religious and observant people as a very sad and gloomy, but in reality from inside it is totally different. So in my drawings I am still talking to him. I used ink and one Kuretake pen and lots of music.
