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.
Most of the work went into the stone. It’s actually funny how quickly I painted the plants, and how meticulously I kept adding details to the stonework. I have a feeling this could have been done much quicker if I made a special stone brush. However, it was a good experience.
As I looked at the finished painting, I realized that something is missing. Now, I feel like there should be water in this scene. Perhaps some day I’ll add a wave or two 🙂

Hi! My name is Oksana Ossipov, and I’m a visual artist and photographer. I was born in Ukraine and currently reside in the area of Dallas, Texas. My formal education includes a BFA in Digital Media Art from San Jose State University. After moving to Texas, I started to focus on my fine art skills and figurative art in particular. I studied for 5 years under Michael Mentler at the Society of Figurative Arts. Through my life, I’ve also acquired a multitude of skills that include web development, sculpting, photography, art studio and business management, and baking awesome blueberry scones!
I’ve been trying to fully devote myself to the art over the past few years. I’m trying to learn and practice as much as I can. However, the workshop, class, and art supply costs present a certain financial challenge. If you like my work and want to support me, I would truly appreciate it! I have a shop full of artworks and creations, but even just sharing my art or social media pages would help a lot. Thank you so much!
