A few weekends ago I attended a portrait workshop at Barnet Guild of Artists’ studio.
In the morning I did a study of the model in pastel and charcoal.
In the afternoon I painted another model in watercolour.
First I did the underdrawing in pencil:
Then I started painting using watercolour:
Adding some colours in the background:
I was at the studio from 10 am to 3:30pm. It was a very productive and enjoyable day !

Hello:) I’d like to show you my new artwork ‘Starry Night’..It’s a little bit different style from what I usually do.
I saw this
beautiful nature photo, and I was inspired to paint something dreamy and unique.
First I started painting the lake.. I used
Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks
Adding blue..it feels magical
Adding some silver ink
Using a cotton ball, I took some blue ink from the lake and started painting the sky
Dropping silver and yellow inks to paint the stars
Using pastel, I added some trees
Adding more blue ink to the lake
After that, I added little rabbits and a fox using pencil. Then I cut out a paper to create the shapes of a bird, attached them to threads, and suspended them from the top of the artwork, so that they look like floating/flying.
It’s a bit different style from what I usually do, but I enjoyed making this..hope you like it too!

Hello! Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.
I recently painted this portrait of a cat I saw in Croatia.
It was a friendly cat and I took a photograph of her relaxing on the street.
Based on the photograph, I started painting…
First I did the underdrawing in pencil, and then I started painting shadows in dark blue watercolour.
Painting tabby patterns with orange watercolour
Painting dark patterns in dark brown
Adding some lights with yellow waterclour
Adding some accent/texture with orange pastel
By the way I’m currently running a summer sale on my
Artfinder shop. Please feel free to browse 🙂
Hope everyone had a nice weekend:) It was very sunny and warm here in London yesterday.
Based on the same photograph I shared you yesterday, I painted another picture in acrylic in more abstract way.
I recently read a book called ‘
Painting Realistic Abstracts‘ by Kees van Aalst
I found both books inspiring, and they encouraged me to paint more expressively.
Using my fingers to paint clouds and the waves
and the finish:)

Here is my new painting ‘Coast of Stonehaven, Scotland’
I painted this based on the photograph I took when I visited Stonehaven a few weeks ago. Stonehaven is a lovely seaside town in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
Here are some photos I took..
Dunnottar Castle was amazing!
This is the picture I used as a reference for my painting
After I had done the rough underdrawing, I used drawing inks by Winsor&Newton to start painting. I found they are great for painting the sea and the sky!
Next I used Conte pastel to paint the cliffs and the land
Used watercolours and inks to add more details and contrast to the picture
I wanted to keep it rather abstract, so I did not paint too much details…and here is the finished piece !
