I continue to work with the materials, brought from Tuscany plain-air ...
By this road we drove to the sea, to Livorno. It says just everything :)

Tuscan sunset. May. 13th, 2012 @ 09:23 am
rmonakhov
I began to work with impressions from our marvelous plain-air ...
Tuscan sunset is fleeting, but has amazing color and unusual, at least for me, light. Here's a story of a Tuscan sunset ...

November 1812. Apr. 2nd, 2012 @ 03:57 pm

The Soviet people in a single impulse is going to celebrate the two hundredth anniversary of the 1812 war.
Well then what an artist, should do? He is a member of the society :) And he also should not stand in the party  :)
In general, this is kind of a joke, but the thing came out like this...

Frosty evening. Engraving on cardboard. Mar. 13th, 2012 @ 12:29 pm
rmonakhov
What a stupid mistake I've done... I completely forgot, that impression is going to be mirrored, and remembered, of course, only when I've already made two-thirds of the work...
Well...  Let it be mirrored then :)

Gasholder in frosty morning. Mar. 10th, 2012 @ 11:27 am

Despite the fact that winter is driving me nuts a little, I continue to paint winter landscapes :)
No matter how cold and nasty is outside, anyway, there's always could be found some kind of beauty...
For example, gasholder ...

» Still life with camomiles. Etching.
And that's yet another "perspectiveless" still life. As usual for me etching follows the painting :) One plate multy colour print.

» Truncated boughs.
Such a dramatic story played out in my courtyard ... It was said that they are using green paint in other places. It could be so for reasons of humanity ... I do not know ... And we have — that's so brutal ...

» Frosty evening.
Frost is unpleasant because of cold. But at the same time it's absolutely beautiful. In my opinion, of course :)
The frosty air gets some new quality. Especially at night ... I'm already watching this frosty air for a week or about that...

» High Water.
Instead of snow and frost, just before the New Year, we had the high water... Even the closed dam did not prevent the water from rise and stand, almost flush with the side walks. It would be a huge remiss not to paint this :)

» Still life with Sandwich. The etching.
I'm still continue working on "perspectiveless" still lifes... I'm really lured into this story :)
Not showing stages of the plate this time — everything was etched with a single layer of lacquer, so the intermediate prints were not possible to do :)
