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…

Underwater Friends – Digital Drawing

Recently, I tried streaming my digital drawing process. The most positive effect that came from it was the ability to follow a schedule. It’s surprising how many distractions are there that keep me from actually drawing or painting. However, if I commit to a streaming schedule, I’m more likely to draw that day! I think…

Digital in Reality – Life Drawing Sessions

For the longest time, I wanted to make a post about this whole situation with quarantine due to COVID-19. I’ve started writing multiple times, and every time it would just turn into whining and ranting. Instead, I’ll keep those thoughts to myself, and try to stay positive at least in this web space. Therefore, I…

Starwhale, polymer clay sculpture

This sculpture is a part of 2019 Sky Whale series. My love for dynamic and movable sculptures is displayed well in this series. Most sculptures tend to be quite static, but I like to design them to be eerie and movable. This is why a lot of my sculptures are designed to be suspended in…

Sleepy Owl, art doll

When I first started working with polymer clay, I wanted to get good enough to make wonderful and magical art dolls. It took a while to build up my confidence, but eventually I found courage to make these mixed media dolls. This is a second art doll I ever created, and it’s called Sleepy Owl….

The Pear, oil painting

This is indeed The Pear for me, since it’s the first pear I tried to paint with oil paint. I love the way it turned out, and it might even be my favorite painting of the year. It’s hard to show the beauty of oil paint with just a photograph, but depending on the lighting,…

Lemon on the Checkered Tablecloth, oil painting

I have recently started exploring oil paint as a medium, and I fell in love with it immediately. The translucency and vividness of colors impressed me so much, that I wanted to throw color everywhere! This gave me an idea to start a series “Drunk with Color.” I started my journey with small still life…

Quiet Day in July, gouache painting

The weather in Texas is very much unpredictable. It can be a calm and sunny afternoon after a swooping thunderstorm in the morning. This is one of those “quiet now” days in July — water too cold to get in the pool, but it’s nice to just sit in the shade. Available for sale! 8.5…

Rhino Soccer Player, watercolor painting

I have this idea of a large format series of geometric animal art, but at first I decided to try it out on a tiny paper with watercolors. Overall, I think it turned out pretty fun, I think I might make a T-shirt for myself with this rhino 😀 Available for sale! 8.5 x 5.5…

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!
