Even though here in California, Spring is slowly moving into Summer, and many trees already dropped their blossoms while teeny tiny fruits are forming on their branches, I am still in awe with Spring Blossoms at their peak of the season.

This artwork of Cherry Blossoms is created with acrylic paint. I wanted to show how another of my favorite water medium works greatly revealing fine texture of the paint on paper:

And recently, looking at my artwork from the bird’s view point, I’ve noticed that purple is becoming one of my favorite color. I’ve created so many artworks with this hue that I felt that there is a need to collect them into a separate gallery. 
I called this Art Gallery –
It has paintings from abstract to realism with all shades of purple color from sweet gentle lilac to deep violets:

Purple artwork fit interior decor so organically. They bring great deal of light and air into a room interior:

I have a blast seeing my artwork in an interior decor settings. This time I want to present how simple and really great different artwork style can decorate an interior of a dining room to either complement or highlight the spirit of the dining room area.

These flowing abstract paintings that I created practically in one day, add a cool sense and ply so well with the blue of the table settings:

I love to see how each of my artwork, no matter of the style of the painting, starts “singing” when it is placed into an interior decor. 

The abstract lines in watercolor with its vertical brushstrokes really dictated the colorful decor of that white couch. 

The next, realistic seascape looks so settled an airy above the couch in the living room. I don’t think that any other interior decor is needed here as the artwork itself is pretty informative and inviting:

The next art piece is quite tasty and well suitable for a kitchen or dining room Rustic Chick decor, the painting of pears and green apples on the counter compete with each other in their realism and contrast values:

My green abstract organic lines painting below fits so well this warm interior decor of a living room:

And for the lovers of all shades of gray, the muted, almost black and white organic watercolor wash on canvas is the best suitable piece for this living room interiors:

I love how the red-ish pillow attracts attention and adds so much interest to the surrounding grays of these two artworks:

On another hand, the colorful sunny painting with flowers in the next interior decor attracts the most attention of the viewer:

With these new designs, I am inviting snow, wind, winter blizzard into an interior of a house. And even though the Winter Forest artworks are full of dynamics of the harsh cold season, they bring an interesting accent into a room decor.

The Winter Blue Forest Silhouette adds cool hues to the living room:
When on another hand, this Winter Purple Forest would rock an interior of a all-purple-color lover:
These and other new paintings became a great addition to my Watercolor Silhouettes Gallery on www.artirin.com

Story Of An Artwork Creation

abstract, artist, bestseller, dancing, dancing fire, fire, hot, interview, Irina, painting painting process, process, Sztukowski, Watercolor, watercolour
My series of the painting that I named Dancing Fire moved emotions of so many people. Besides declaring itself to be one of my bestsellers, this body of art inspired some for articles (example is HERE), some for poetry (Examples are HERE and HERE) all over the world. 
Yesterday, I was contacted by an Advanced Art Class student whose assignment was to write an article about her favorite painting. She asked me about a creation process. I was very pleased that the Art Schools are focusing on the contemporary artists these days. I also, thought that sharing about the process of an artwork creation, especially an abstract piece like this one above, would be a great addition to my blog.
Here is the part of the interview.
******************************************
Question: 
When you were creating this piece of art, what were you thinking of and what were your emotions?
Answer:
 When I created this piece of art, I was conducting an experiment of some sort. I wanted to see how the watercolor from yellow to red, beige, and brown would flow into each other when placing the paint on paper using wet-on-wet technique. 
I had some hot yet classic music playing on the background that day. And while listening to the music, I was happily applying the paint with circular brush strokes. Then I peacefully, with the interest of a curious artist, watched how the paint “melted” and moved on its own. 
After the paper was bone dry, I’ve looked at it for a moment and the idea to add a dancing woman figure popped-up into my mind. 
It was rather spontaneous decision. I wanted to emphasize the flow of the paint with the movement of a dancing body and with her skirt curling in unison with the direction of the paint. 
*******************************************
I am so happy I can share my thoughts about creation of this Hot Hot series dancing fire 🙂

It is ALL about FIRE 🙂

From Abstract Watercolor To Boutique

One of my paintings from Vivid Abstract Vibrant Sensation series has been selected to accompany Fall Collection of Sandbar Boutique LLC, an online retailer of fine women’s clothing, jewelry and accessories (http://www.sandbarboutique.com). The creative team of the boutique chose this painting because it was perfectly resembling the burst of hues of a great season.

I believe it is looking pretty good for a background on the boutique’s website:
Also, I would like to point out that this particular abstract was already presented in my own so to speak boutique in RedBubble Art Shop .
The light sleeveless dress looks vibrant and cheerful in this color theme:
So is more dressy outfit that is good for any occasion from the office wear to a party dress:

Needless to say, the silky scarf with this Vivid Abstract is presenting a great pattern when it comes to the large area such 55″x 55″ dynamic burst of colors:

I love how the pattern looks on the mini-skirt as well. So trendy! So bright!

But my personal favorite is a woman chiffon top that undoubtedly is the winner of my Vivid Abstract Vibrant Sensation collection! 

Whimsical Garden Decorative Design

In my new collection Whimsical Garden, I am using some old watercolor techniques with a new approach. I decided to block the color with the help of protective medium in order to allow the watercolor to flow only in one particular area. It reminded me batik style technique but with the new trick. The possibilities of this kind of style are endless. 

Here is another one for example:

I have selected the color pallet from light green to deep Paynes Gray thinking about departure of the Summer. 
It was fun to imagine these designs on the stretched canvas prints with mirrored sides :

Also, this style of decorative watercolor was “screaming” to me to try it on pillows designs:

And I wouldn’t be true to myself if I have not tried to see how these designs will look in the simple off-white and black interior. 
It was looking pretty good as the matter of fact:

Another design that was created in the same color theme, was the Organic Decor that has softer lines and mellow edges. I used wax application in order to achieve this effect.
Here is the end result.

bestseller by Irina Sztukowski
As I promised to my art followers, I continue to analyse the art sales and place a few bestsellers of the month on my blog. January and February sales report was placed a week ago, and if you are interested it can be found here ( Art That Sells post) 

Now it is time to talk about bestsellers of the month for March and April. To my surprise there were plenty of abstract paintings sold those months. The one above, Dancing Watercolor, was the bestselling abstract on my RedBubble website.

My main website www.artirina.com  was selling abstract art like crazy as well. 
Here are just a few of them:
purple bestseller painting Irina Sztukowski
blue painting decor bestseller
I am so happy that Art Collectors appreciate the abstract art for decorating their houses. I was also pleased that the abstract bestselling watercolor found a good home in the form of pillows. 

Here is one of the bestsellers:

hot vivid painting bestseller
Yet the portraits were not left behind. When I researched the bestselling art of those months, I realized, that quite a few portraits were purchased by art collectors.

Here are is one, for example, from the RedBubble Gallery:

And needless to say, I was not surprised at all that the same website sold again The Girl And The Ocean famous watercolor bestseller of mine 🙂

Another portrait in the seascape setting was sold by my ImageKind Gallery:

And another, this time silly portrait of Chameleon was purchased by the Art Collector from Williston, North Dakota. This cute curious animal became such a bestseller in the last few years:

So, concluding that most of the sales were abstract and portraits bestsellers, I also want to add that Italian theme, e.g. Italian landscapes and even digital artworks were also quite popular those months.
For example, Siena Italy painting hits the sales records again:

As well as my bestselling photograph of Venice which I touched with the digital brush, was looking so nice in the new frame selected by the Art Collector from Orlando, Florida:

Abstract Watercolor Painting

green and blue home decor interior
As I could predict, working on the project that involved very detailed watercolor illustrations of seeds, spices, flower buds, etc., I needed some rest and relaxing. And what is the best way to relax for an artist than to switch to a fast fearless brush strokes and create some abstract paintings. 
The Green and Blue Organic Curves watercolor was born by dabbing a sponge into a wet watercolor and generously patching the watercolor paper while listening to a nice classic music. So, in this project (above) no brush was used at all.

The next design was created with the flat dry brush. I used water this time as little as possible. You can see the brush strokes that are covering each other without melting. That what a dry brush technique is all about:

abstraction red blue yellow interior decor
And the last but not least experiment with watercolor was when I let the color paint itself by placing clear water streaks on the paper first and then randomly inserted all Rainbow Colors. The colors melted into each other creating unique lovely pattern of a Watercolor Rainbow Rain.

I love how great it looks in a simple interior decor:

and if to flip the very same painting upside down, and place above the fireplace the painting delivers totally different feeling. To me it even looked like a fire pushing the water up up up :
