Girl with braid – part one
I started new serie of childish pictures made of watercolours. First of all I titled “Girl with braid” because I wanted to decorate my children’s room. The goal is to choose the one and change it into stickers on wardrobe. Before I do that I need to try manyof them.
First image which I created was a girl with braid who is making bubbles. It was painted on paper sized A4 with watercolours. I hope you enjoy it!
Newborn metrics for girl
I created newborn metrics for my daughter Urszula.
A name Urszula comes from latin from word ursa which means she-bear. Thats why in the picture I painted bear-ballerina.
In the same style I added features of character typical for woman with the name Urszula: responsible, ambitious, independent, dynamic, happy and outgoing.
All made by watercolours on paper sized A4 and framed.
“Stairway to heaven”
This is the newest acrylic painting. Picture shows stairs to heaven with a couple of lovers on them.
Acrylic on canvas 50×60 cm. Edges painted.
Sakura trees – part 5 – corrections and details
Last part is to correct meadow – add more flowers and shadow them, paint family on the bridge, add details in some places.
I also added some glossy reflections on river using pearl white. I also wanted to paint something on the sky because I thought it looks empty there. So I first thought about balloon under heads of family. I even started to paint it but client didn’t like it so I had to paint over it. It wasn’t easy because I still saw horizontal brush marks so I painted additional cloud in this place. The effect you can see below:
I varnished my painting and I think my work was done so next step is to drive it into destiny’s place and install it on frame in client’s house. We need to cut off edges and pin on it on prepared frame. This is how it looks at the end:
My advise: if you want to have painting at house which will be covered during using television like in this case – don’t install empty frame. It would be much easier. But we of course handle it. Client was satisfied and happy, so do I.
I hope you enjoy it.
Sakura trees – part 4 – painting grass and river
Next step – painting grass and meadow on first plan. At the beginning I painted green background and later worked on details on grass.
I started from left side of painting. Small grass from faraway was painted by using fan brush but all visible blade of grass was painted manually and separately using normal very thin brush. It took very long period of time. Also I painted edge of river.
Next I tried to detailed meadow at the front of painting. Here glade of grass need to be larger. I also added some flowers. But it isn’t finished work with meadow. Some of planned flowers will be protruded by the river so I painted river before I finish meadow.
Above you can see painted river. I wanted it was very light. On river ducks are swimming. I also made some color on bridge.

Sakura trees – part 3 – trees
Next part was to paint all cherry blossom trees. At the beginning I painted brown trunks and branches and later white-pink blossoms.
I used brushes to paint blossom but I noticed that effect isn’t satisfied for me, so I found in the Internet smart way to paint it quick and beautifully – I used few cotton buds tight together in spite of brushes. The effect was much better.
I think blossoms look stunning. I just needed to shadow trunks and branches.

Sakura trees – part 2 – painting sky with clouds
After client’s approval I ordered canvas and paints and prepared place to paint. I couldn’t find prepared canvas in size exactly the same as they wanted so I bought little bigger and marked by masking tape necessary size. I could do that because I knew when I end this painting we will relocate it into new frame already installed in client’s home.
This is how it looked. Area between masking tape will be painted.
Next I started painting. I always start from top to bottom, so at first I decided to paint sky with cloud. At the beginning I painted blue sky and left unpainted places for clouds. When sky dried (and it dried fast because it is acrylic), I painted clouds. Effect you can see below:
I think clouds are pretty cool. Next I put first layer under grass and forests hills.

This is my newest acrylic painting inspired tv series “His dark materials”.
Below you can see an alethiometer known as a golden compass.it was special thing which could tell the truth to person who can use it. Only few people could do it. In the background you can see aurora which also is connected with this tv series.
I also saw a movie “Golden Compass” and in my opinion tv series is more interested than the movie.
Used media: acrylic painting + black marker. Picture painted on paper size A3.
Below you can see the newest drawing titled Dark Castle. All picture is made by graphite pencils on paper A3. The image presents dark abandoned castle. In my opinion it has a atmosphere of The Addams family. And you what is your first thought about this drawing?
