This is a work from a series of summer still lifes and bouquets. The series is dedicated to summer flavors and atmosphere. The main idea is to depict the soul of flowers and their fragrance.
As for the artist, my preferred material for work is soft pastels, but this is not a classical school. I add and combine different textures and materials. All In order to depict the feelings and the non-material essence of objects. I’m always looking for new solutions, but the essence of all my images is the same. I’m always interested in the ease in work, I’m trying to convey the atmosphere and air.
The technique of pastel painting-graphics is inexpressibly poetic. It looks like gentle layers of translucent fabric, it is this effect that creates a living space between work and the viewer. I think that textures are very important for immersion. I create volumes for flat pastel technique, I mix it with technique painting of palette knife and sometimes with a industrial marker. For my artworks, I use only chalk-based paints to increase the degree of adhesion of pigments. I use pastel crayons – the soft pastel brand Schmincke, at this stage only they can convey all the shades of my emotions.
NB!! In my work I use mixed technique. But all compounds are verified by experiment, so the works are durable.
Pastel is a very durable technique with proper care. All work must be use under the glass with the use of a passe-partout with a thickness of at least 2 mm.
I sell my work without framing, I do not see the point, the buyer knows better what frame he needs. But each work will be packed on a substrate of hard cardboard, covered with several layers of tracing paper and a bubbly polyethylene, then packed in a cardboard box. The weight of the package, despite this, is kept easy.
Each work has author’s sign (autograph) in lower left corner.Details:
