Why did I decide to write a blog and started to learn and train to do #goodmood paintings. Let’s start!:) But then our family’s discussions around the dining led to another thought: why not make it into a bigger idea? I have published about 500 paintings, both in oil and watercolor, completed both my Portrait certificate and Landscape diploma, several watercolor courses, successfully planned 20 art and architecture journeys, visiting and painting an average of 5-10 cities and places within each journey; so why not to share both Art and Travel knowledge with my new and experienced artist colleagues and lovers of culture who admire architecture and museums? Looking back to my ten years’ experience, I realized how much I have learned and would like to contribute to people who like painting, producing sketches during travelling on both city and beach vacations, painting in their own city, their museums, architecture, enjoying drawing people on a street or visitors in museums, and learning other countries’ customs through national festivals or concerts.
I will share my knowledge, experience and enthusiasm in all areas. For example, how to not be afraid to learn something new in painting, how to start to do sketches in front of other people in museums, on streets, at airports, how to find interesting paths in any city. I cannot handle to sit in one place for more than a couple of days as I want to explore all around.
I admit I love French Riviera and their sunny lazy beaches ….but even there, I find the need to go for one-day trips as I continue exploring. In my blog, I will show what is common between the forms of Arizona Grand Canyon’s rocks and the famous Barcelona La Sagrada Familia and the monumental ruins of the Roman Empire in Rome, Provence’s cities and Cordoba’s cathedral in Spain.
My tips on how to paint the Grand Canal in Venice and why frescoes in Germany remind me of Shagal’s painting in the museum in Nice. I have lots of material and my start point was 2019 year, then I will go backward to previous years’ drawings, painting using my notes and planning vacations’ artistic and travelling trips. I will share my secrets how to do art and travel, 2 in 1, about making original frames for your artwork and many others fun things… You are welcome to join Art and Travel Club with me:)
