M.D.N.A


The smart name for this post I stole from Madonna's (singer) page I like on Facebook. I am sure she does not care.
The girl is inspired by David Hockney's collage. I used news paper, magazines' pages, Brullov's and Rerikh's reproductions (that explain the richness of her coat, such coat I would like for myself too).
The eyes on the left are the alternative eyes I wanted for my girl. Unfortunately, they were refused and left on the windowsill.

Early Morning in Ikea Cafe


Deserted Ikea, right after the opening, gave me kind of surrealistic feeling. Empty rooms, which are always so alive and crowded, were calm and lonely. Cafe, silent and loaded with food. Little version of planet Earth after the end of times.

Ordinary disastrous every day events in my country and overall rise of temperature in the world completely washed away my wish to express myself in blogging. But suddenly the spammers helped. The amount of spam became unbearable, which usually shows that blog is forgotten by its owner and needs revival. So here I am, drawing, painting, blogging. I hope you are all right out there, my friends.

Dreaming Desperately

It was a shot I unexpectedly caught on TV when scrolling the channels. Russian movie about a lonely woman dreaming to meet the right man was actually a complete disaster, but this scene was great with dark background, red necklace, roses on the table. I memorized it and painted later in tempera.

Bert Dodson "Keys to Drawing"


These inks and shapes were inspired by the task in Bert Dodson's amazing book (Amazon link). This book and everyday practice can make miracles to any newbie with a pencil, I believe it and I know it.

The Night

I tried, but failed to show the silver of the Adriatic Night. I will practice more.

The Blue of the Sea

The Adriatic Sea has the impossibly beautiful emerald-light blue color. Just look at it and all your problems go away.
