A quick update on what’s cooking. 

I finished a commission request for New Blackberries painting for Jam Labels. Every time I paint berries my mouth is watering as I remember how tasty that jams are. And in return I pass the positive vibes to my art, and the berries start looking yummy :0)

The background painting is a sneak peek into my new art collection that I am working on these days. The unofficial name for this series is Some Like It Hot, official name is Bay Area Flowers. So far three large full sheet paintings are completed and I will be posting them soon. Many more to come.

Stay tuned!

In Every Piece Of My Art There Is A Piece Of My Heart And A Sparkle Of My Soul

Girl’s Portrait Study Final Phase

The Girl’s portrait is completed. I’ve defined hair, worked on eyes and lips. And at the final stage looked at the anything that needs to be fixed.

What did I learn?

– The shadow side of the face lit by the Sun needs to be painted darker than you think when mixing the paint. And even it looks exaggerated when it is wet it will dry lighter.
– The time to finish is the time when the artist thinks it is done. I could work on this portrait until the year end; but, it was time to stop. Sometimes it is hard to do so.
– Red hair requires pretty much all colors but Red: I used all shades of gold, which are yellow, transparent orange, burned sienna, green.

I had a lot of fun painting this portrait, learned a lot, and now it is even a little sad it is done. But I need to move forward 🙂

Ladybug

artist Irina Sztukowski, bug, lady bug, ladybug by Irina, ladybug painting

Why when we see a Ladybug we usually smile? Are they some kind of messengers from our childhood? These cute colorful ladies are amazing creatures. I’ve got so many of those hardworking (per online Dictionary they “are important predators of aphids” ) in my garden. Love just looking at them and watch them going up on the leaf and taking off to nowhere. This one is still thinking about where to go first. But wherever they go we are all know they bring us a good luck 🙂
