Last year, I started the DARK ART collection. In the Dark Art the artist transmits his thoughts in a very mysterious way and, occasionally, combining surrealist elements, visually stunning scenes, where the black predominates over all colours.Continue reading
Gold leaf can be a wonderful addition to acrylic painting, as it provides contrast in sheen and reflectance. I have always loved using gold leaf for my artwork so I use both gold and silver leaf a lot in my paintings.Continue reading
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts or Beaux-Arts is powerful, in-depth reflection of the highlights of civilization, included in the pavilion’s presentation of 750 international artworks on four levels.

When you’re beginning to learn to draw, picking up a pencil is generally the first thing you do. But, that’s where many of us stop; we learn how to doodle, but don’t go beyond the basics. If you’re unfamiliar with drawing with a pencil—beyond stick figures or scribbles—there are sketch techniques that you need to know.Continue reading
For centuries, artists and artisans have turned to gold leaf as a way to make their creations shimmer and shine. Evident in everything from ancient artifacts to modern masterpieces, the glistening gold accents can add an ethereal touch to any work of art.Continue reading
Charcoal is and always will be my favourite art material. Because of the softness of its drawing edge, charcoal tends to favour broad, vigorous draftsmanship, with an emphasis on mass and movement rather than on linear precision. It is about LIVING IN THE MOMENT. It is crushing the white paper.Continue reading
Acrylic paint is a fairly young medium among art materials and has gained great popularity due to its unique qualities. Acrylics can be painted using several techniques you would use with oil, such as impasto, but it dries much faster. With acrylics, you can also paint translucent glazes as you can do with watercolor paint.

The contemporary art, EARTH collection is inspired by the subtle neutrals and the magic textures surrounding us in nature and architecture. It is the time when you find yourself looking around dreaming you could just hold on to the moment – no other worries of the future plans, holding on to every little detail of texture and push of wind to transport you to freshness and newness of being in this calm place.
“Le Noir” is the beginning of the DARK ART collection.
I am so excited to share this with you! This collection embodies a journey of transformation, learning and finding yourself through your darkest times. It is all about neutral tones, monochrome style and fine textures.
I hope you will love the unique texture and beauty of it.Continue reading
If you’ve never learned how to play music, sitting with a group of musicians using technical terms to describe their work can be a whirlwind of confusing, beautiful language. A similar situation can occur when speaking with artists who paint with oils: suddenly you’re in a conversation where they’re debating the finer points of pigments, discussing the benefits of canvas versus linen, brush recommendations, and a technique called “wet-on-wet.”Continue reading
Aquarelle or watercolour is like life. Better get it right the first time – you don’t get second chance. What I like about it is that a lot of happy accidents occur. Watercolour actually moves on the paper, it is the most active of all mediums, almost a performance art.Continue reading
There is nothing more delightful than sketching. Today, I will share with you, my greatest passion – ART. I’ve been sketching all my life. It is the most direct and spontaneous expression: it reveals, better than does painting, your true personality.Continue reading
