It is a good time to mention bestselling art of the first quarter of this year. I will just mention here a few of them, that truly became best of the sellers from my art world collection of watercolor.
Above painting of Stockholm was purchased by an art collector, surprise, surprise, from Sweden. I am so happy that this painting print, which is already one of my bestsellers since 2010 now will decorate a house in Uddevalla, Sweden.

Another bestselling watercolor that I want to point out and I am not surprised that it was precisely in the fist quarter, the Water Lilies that I painted one day being inspired by Claude Monet .. And surprising enough, the museum Legion Of Honor was hosting the Monet exhibition this year. I loved visiting this exhibit with its bestselling art two times this year. And here are my Water Lilies bestseller, mine are painted with watercolor on a special watercolor canvas:

These watercolor lilies traveled to Clayton, MO to decorate my art collector’s house.

The Art Collector from Californian town Torrance, decided to purchase White Oleander painting of mine in a beautiful gray frame. Here is this bestseller in all its beauty:

And I was not surprised that my bestselling Italian painting with ancient town of Siena, was purchased this quarter as  well. By the way, the second quarter of this year I am planning to visit this town for business and will paint many more beautiful paintings of its churches, streets, flowers that most likely are keen to become bestsellers of the following year 🙂 . I love Italy, and even devoted a Gallery to this country, this gallery now has more than 100 paintings.
art for home decor
I am so happy that my travels help my art collectors bringing the art with beautiful places around the world into their home interior. As a good example this bestselling artwork with the view of Golden Gate Bridge through Lincoln Golf Park (the 17th Hole) which is so loved by my customers. This time  art collector from Fairfield, California purchased this art for the home decor:

Another bestseller from my Travel Collection went to one International customer from Malta. This art collector was interested in a Russian Cathedral, the Blood Cathedral from Saint Petersburg (the city where are was born):

And needless to say, my bestselling art pieces were also printed not only on canvases, paper, metal prints, and framed artworks; but as well on different merchandise. 
Such for example bestselling watercolor with dancing Ballerina was loved by the art collector from El Segundo, CA and purchased on a few blue pillows for living room decor:

Drawing is The Key

As we say “The Drawing Is The Key”; and it is absolute true. Drawing usually helps to analyze values and composition. It is extremely helpful to draw a little sketch before going watercolor. In my case I have almost a year between the drawing creations and watercolor paintings. And it happened in reverse. First I made watercolors (and I did make sketches before of course); however, when the need came to create new compositions, my watercolors helped me to choose the subject.


One assignment was given at the beginning of my Drawing Class this semester. I was asked to combine three spheres with line style hands and Nature. My watercolor “Lake Tahoe” helped me to fulfill the requirement. The still water of Lake Tahoe, the polished rocks and crisp winter air was the best choice when I created the drawing “Meditation”.
Another drawing that I named “Jewels of Love” was set up for shallow space realistic still life. And this time I used one shell from my shell collection watercolor paintings. The idea was to research the textures of different materials such metal, organic leafy object, glass, water, and sea shell. It was fun to remind myself again that the drawing is the most important part of any realistic painting if not all paintings in whole.
