Painting Floral Cards
Demo at Coffee Break started with bright Red on my brush. I, all of a sudden, wanted to begin not with Wet-On-Dry technique as planned, but with Wet-On-Really-Really-Wet.. 

I splashed some water in random places on the paper and made them red allowing the paint to flow down creating the stems of the flowers. My model was a recent loose painting of Red Puppies, which I created using the same technique:
Purple Lavender Yellow Flowers
After the first painting was done, I’ve made a few more cards with Wet-On-Dry technique “pulling” images from my memory.

I hope everyone enjoyed the day. 
But the most people having fun, I believe, were I and these young visitors

Free Demo
Above is a little flyer about a new Art Show. My artist-friend Vera Lysenko and I decided to paint a series of painting depicting Russia. San Francisco has a big Russian community and these series of paintings will be enjoyed by a lot of people.

I’ve made 12 miniatures and divided them into three groups.

Fist group shows the city where I was born, the great Saint Petersburg:
Travel Series
The next group is showing Four Seasons. Yes, there are all four in Russia even though sometimes it feels like half year of Winter:
Russian Landscape
Last group of miniatures shows one of the famous cathedrals, 
The Church of Our Savior on the Spilled Blood. I used to live 5 min walk from this gorgeous historical monument:

Saint Petersburg Cathedral
This coming Saturday I’ll be in San Francisco for the Art Show  reception and I’ll give a demo on how to paint cute greeting cards using wet-on-dry technique and basic watercolors

4601 Geary Blvd, San Francisco, California
(2:00pm – 3:30pm)

Needless to say, that everyone who can come is welcome!
