Rhino Soccer Player, watercolor painting

Geometric Life of Pear, original watercolor painting

When things begin to get too real, I seem to be slanting over to the geometric side. These abstract pears can be viewed from two vantage points. Is the pear being filled with color, or is the vividness gets sucked out of it? That’s for you to decide depending on how you see the glass…

Single Pear, watercolor painting

When I just started painting these watercolor studies, my goal was to get as realistic, but graphical as I can. I think with this pear I nearly reached this goal. I really enjoy how lively it turned out, it seems as if one can really see the volume! Available for sale! 8.5 x 5.5 in…

Juicy Pear, watercolor painting

This year, my paintings are dominated by various pears. I keep painting them because it feels like more can be done or something can be improved. At the same time, I study the form in general. The question is how to make it more realistic, graphic, and vivid. This is the way to achieve beauty,…

Green pear, watercolor drawing

I keep a bunch of fake fruits on the table for the times when I’m too lazy to get an actual fruit or vegetable, or simply can’t like with this whole quarantine deal. I just turn them and paint over and over, all I care about is the shadows on the shape ^_^ I might…

Star gourd, watercolor painting

I wanted to make my watercolors more vivid, so this one turned out with fairly high contrast. Do you like when watercolor paintings are more subtle or vivid? Available for sale!

Yellow gourd, watercolor painting

The beauty of pumpkins and gourds is in how long one can keep them without spoiling. Whenever I’m low on fruits or veggies, I turn to these! They come in variety of shapes and colors, and they’re just fun to paint in general. Half way through the composition, I’ve noticed that I centered this fella…

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!
