Story Of An Artwork Creation

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 🙂

Dancing Water – Abstract

A little bit of Water and Color and my next Abstract Series came alive (click on each image to play with the prints sizes, frames, etc if you wish):
In this abstract painting the dancer is leaving and bringing away the rough weather letting us to enjoy the future calm and quiet
Here the girl just stopped dancing, but her skirt is still moving with the last sounds of music
In this abstract painting the ballet dancer is going up in the air and the waves below represent her dress and the energy flow
In this abstract painting I did not even dare to place a figure. The vortex of moving waters was absorbing everything. I have achieved an interesting texture that reminds a foam by sprinkling some salt on the paint while it was still wet
These few paintings are a second part of my Dancing Abstract Collection (in Abstract– Décor – Collage gallery). I started the series when needed to clear my head from pure realism and when I asked myself a question: what color are some dances such Tango, or Flamenco, or classical ballet? And this question led to an idea to create a several series of paintings:


When thinking of Dancing Water nothing but ballet come to my mind.. I guess it is from my childhood memories about a Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky.

I took cold colors (practically out of the tube) with addition of warmer green. The cool blues are: Ultramarine and Phthalo with a little Cobalt Blue. Purple Violet with the dash of Payne’s Grey are implying deep sea. I definitely used plenty of water to move the paint around letting it spread as it wanted with minimal control. 

It was good to abstract. Now back to Realism :0)

When I placed four of my new abstract paintings together, I was surprised myself how the cold wet watercolors could transform into a hot powerful fire. Just in a few brushstrokes the energy of a dramatic composition moves the viewers’ eyes from one figure to another generating a new Dance of Fire.
My favorite Dancing Fire painting remains this one:
