Prescott, Arizona

200x400mm, Daler Rowney Aquafine, 300gr
When I joined the Moscow Daily Photo blog about two month ago I did not realise I will be so interested. In two ways. To  popularize my lovely city (and I became hooked by the idea, bought new camera, study city history, etc). And to see everyday reports of normal people from around the world, become friends with that people, enjoy their talent and creativity.
But painting is not forgotten.
This quick sketch is inspired by Jarart's Prescott Daily Photo, my hands started looking for brush, when I saw this watercolorly photo.
In Russia they say the painting from photo is rubbish . I do not care. Photo awakes my creativity. Viva la photo!


  1. Oh, Irina! I'm so pleased that my photo inspired this beautiful painting! I love it! I have to tell everyone to come here and see it.
    Thank You, thank you!
    Judy (Jarart)
