Garden of Stones. Apr. 29th, 2013 @ 05:38 pm
rmonakhov
Quite recently at that place it was possible to observe different industrial and urban stuff ... Here were buildings of the rolling mill, founded on June 21, 1857 . It started out as a "company for the production of bronze and iron foundry products", then became the "nail factory". After the nationalization it starts bear the proud name of "Red nailer." You know, at those days everything that was good or important was "Red"... Today it turned into a garden of stones...

Autumn beach. Sep. 3rd, 2012 @ 10:42 am
rmonakhov
Last week by chance I spent some time in Zelenogorsk. One more time I assured that in the autumn beaches are so attractive in terms of painting. There is a sort of something in it ... Don't even know how to call it ... But it's not important at all ... Here is the picture that came out of that :)

Summer evening at Pryazhka river. Aug. 24th, 2012 @ 01:55 pm
rmonakhov
Summer is almost over and everything is refilled with color. And this is so good.
Almost 20 years ago, we were playing on the frame of this building and we were absolutely confident that it would never be filled with life - that was the times of a full swing "perestroyka" around and familiar world just was rolling into the chaos. But, nevertheless, the building were finished, and it works. At least so far ... 
But this is not what I was interested in - colours are playing in the last rays of the sun in such a gorgeous way :)

» The Dark Carriage.
Can't say that I like the subway. Actually I don't like it at all. However, as the theme, the subway is quite interesting. At least, for the one who are interested in industrial objects, mechanisms, and similar things, like me.
That this is a story about the dark subway car...

» Interlude.

A couple of weeks ago we went to the Mariinsky. That was pretty well: in addition to opera impressions, I found an idea for this canvas...

» Kanonersky tunnel.
Here is, would seems to be worn to holes subject about the light at the end of the tunnel. But this is only "seemingly", because I was more interested in the light not in the end, but in the inside of the tunnel. With a light at the end of the tunnel everyone has their own relationship, but for some reason noone thinks about the light inside the tunnel. But in vain... Curious effects arise there...

» Office building roof.
Here's a view from the window of one of the classrooms of Design School, where I teach :)

» Truncated boughs.
Finally finished engraving on a cardboard, which I've started a couple of months ago .
As always mirrored :) Every time working with cardboard, I forget that the print is going to be mirrored comparing to the plate...
That's interesting, what could it be? I always remember to reflect an image when working on etchings, in monoprints — almost never forget to :)
But in the cardboard — always forget...
