Koi fish in muddy water by Wintella
Koi fish in muddy water
A lame title for this painting, but it's how I feel about it xD I was messing around with watercolours, trying some techniques. First, I just put some colours without knowing what I was doing, crinkled some plastic and stuck it on paper to let it dry for stone effects in the pond. Then, I just had fun trying different ways of mixing colours on the koi fish, removing extra paint on it and reapplying on top with a different technique. And in the end, the whole thing looks like a blurry messy muddy water xD

Hummingbird and hibiscus flower by Wintella
Hummingbird and hibiscus flower
Just an experimental watercolour painting of a hummingbird and an hibiscus flower. I tried some of the techniques that I'm not comfortable with in here, making the bird and the flower and even the background completely different styles. Oh well, I guess it's by experimenting that we discover what we lake and make it our own style. The whole painting was inspired by this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNyj6F… . The hummingbird reference: www.mama-knows.com/wp-content/… The hibiscus flower reference is one of my pictures:

I'm just writing quickly this journal to say Happy New Year to all, a lot of love, happiness and creativity !

I just came back from Europe where I had my internship and traveled a bit, I need to put back my life on track. I have no idea when I will get around to do more art, but no worry, I will come back in force later in 2015 :)

Love you all,

Wintella

Canada
I'm a young 27 years old woman living in Canada. I came here from Russia when I was 12. I speak Russian, French and English. I'm a student at university in Master's degree in social work and I'm currently working in a women's shelter. I'm living right now with my fiancÚ and my two cats!

I'm a vegetarian and one of my goals is to become raw vegan! I like organic stuff, from food to all kind of domestic products.

I think that I am quite an artistic person. As you can see from my gallery, I paint on glass and on canvas with acrylic paint (my favorite medium!). Recently, I really got into watercolors. I draw too (I like especially oil pastels) and do other interesting artistic creations like origami and homemade snow balls xD I enjoy to take pictures too, but I don't have a good camera.

I looooooooooooove and adoooooooore animals! All the felines (cheetah, domestic cats...), imaginary ones (unicorns, dragons...), horses and I spend a lot of time watching documentaries on the natural world. I like to take some walks around my house. I live in a quite neighborhood just near a river and the sunsets here are lovely.

I also like to listen music: Enigma, Russian, techno, relaxation. I love to dance too... even if I abandoned ballroom dance lessons years ago.

I'm kind of hooked up on animes and manga, especially yaoi. I read a lot, fantasy books mostly. I do write from time to time, even poetry.

Hello Warren. You are very welcome :) I was glad to see something new from you. I do like it a lot ! I still didn't do much painting since I came back from Belgium. I'm busy right now with my partner preparing for a huge health food expo that gonna take place this week-end. Since he is doing raw vegan cakes, I help him a lot, working crazy hours. And I'm busy also with school work. Stuff are gonna calm down a bit after the expo and probably after April. Till then, art is on stand by.

Thank you again. I have been working on a large acrylic diptych but the watercolours give me a chance to produce new things in the meantime. It sounds like you are very busy there, and will get back to your art once things settle down. Good luck with the food expo, and the school work, I hope it isn't too much pressure on you, and you get a well deserved break once it's all over. :-)

Yah, there is a lot of pressure actually, since I'm way late in my school assignments. But oh well, it's my own fault 'cuz I have been procrastinating when I had time, just 0 motivation for paper work. But now, with 10-12h of work a day, I can't concentrate on that. I contacted my teacher explaining her what is going on, she is not happy about it, but the finances take the priority over the school. After the expo, I'm gonna give it all in for the school. I didn't spend more than 3 years of my life for Master's degree just to abandon at the end. That would be stupid ! With spring coming in soon, I'm sure the motivation for school work is gonna be there!
