Stone Wall in the Garden, Digital Painting

I did this digital painting of a stone wall in the garden a while back as an assignment for landscape course. It was an interesting experience as I never tried to paint a “cutout” of the world before. It almost feels like this scene should be a part of a game, and I love it….

Autumn Road Sketch – Original Oil Painting

The road is short when you know it leads right to heaven. This painting of an autumn road is a quick sketch of an idea that I hope to rework in a larger format in the future. I used oil on linen panel to paint this small landscape. It is a mix of memories of…

Wave of Calm over Chaos, abstract painting

This abstract painting hides the idea of calmness taking over chaos. The perfect blue consumes the chaos of life, turning it into peaceful emptiness. From the other point of view, the blue wave could be creating chaos. In any case, this is the relationship of calmness and chaos. There is no one without the other;…

Mountain Flats – Landscape Oil Study

Last year, I took an online gouache painting course with Justin Donaldson. Most of the assignments in this course I did in gouache. However, some of them could have been done in any medium. I heard that gouache behaves very much like oil except that it dries much quicker. Therefore, I decided to give oil…

Pumpkin Monster Collection

Fantasy creatures is one of the reasons I love polymer clay. With this medium, it is possible to bring fantasy to life, and not just on a flat surface, but in 3D! This collection is an experiment with pumpkin and gourd shapes, and the idea of adorable monsters. Most of these are small figurines and…

This cameo is one of the first resin series called “Floating fruits” done by Oksana. This one of a kind pendant features a miniature pear on a branch suspended seemingly in midair inside an antique bronze cameo. In reality, the pear is held in place by translucent with a touch of sparkle resin. The resin…

Fruity Road Block, apple & pear painting

Apple, pear on the floor.. who’s the pretties of them all? I have worked on a number of still life paintings, and especially apple and pear paintings lately, and I started to get bored of plain backgrounds. That’s when I had a thought of mentally transporting some of the still life setups into the outdoor…

Sunset at the Lake in Texas, original oil painting

Beauty of living in the south is the warmth of all seasons. Summer is for fun, and the rest of the year is for work! Now that it’s cooling down, I can get out and paint more often. Here’s a place in my neighborhood that I like to paint. It’s a quiet small lake with…

Plain Air Waterfall Painting

Ever since I learned about impressionists, I wanted to try plain air painting. There’s something magical about capturing the moment, the air, the ever-shifting reality. It turned out to be harder than I expected! At the time, I used acrylic paint, and due to it’s drying time it proved to be impractical to use in…

Garden of Eve – Digital Painting

Occasionally, I like to do quick digital painting studies from some fashion magazines or clothes catalogs. Here is one of such studies. I used a figure in the red dress from the catalog as a reference and added a fantasy element to create a completely different scene. I used my old and trusted Wacom tablet…

Charm Bracelets out of Polymer Clay

I remember being interested in jewelry since I was little. Once, I found a few broken necklaces and chains in my mom’s drawer, and fixed them by attaching missing links or jump-rings using my dad’s pliers. I don’t think anyone really taught me how to do it, I just did. I went into making my…

Oksana Ossipov, portrait

I’ve been trying to fully devote myself to art in the past two years. I’m trying to learn and practice as much as I can. However, workshops, classes and art supplies cost presents a certain financial challenge. If you like my work and want to support me, I would truly appreciate it! I have a few tiers set up on Patreon or even just sharing my art or social media pages would help a lot. Thank you so much!
