Today I want to express my appreciation to an Art Collector who purchased this Purple Ballerinas Silhouettes in Watercolor from Wayfair under my licensing contract. How lovely that people can have this art-piece in their home interior decor now.
Art Gallery To Visit And Enjoy : Watercolor Silhouettes
In the process of preparation for the coloring book that I am working on with the artist Maria Batkova , we check all the flowers that we draw Black & White first thoughtfully , then we color them passionately ; and even place them on a wall to see how it will look framed.
This book is about botanical flowers, we’ve researched antique botanical paintings in the library archive; then, we stylized the old masters approach into a modern, fresh look for a contemporary interior.
So, we are testing every piece of art that we create, coloring it with pencils, watercolors, and markers; and, even framing the pieces to see how they will look in the home interior decor.

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:
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 :
Whimsical Garden III (above on the left)
Whimsical Garden IV (above on the right)
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.
This soft organic paintings looked sweet on any decorative style print and even on bags:
Yes, Summer might be almost over, but my Decorative Gallery will have the memory of this season forever 🙂
