Hello art lovers!
You might be wondering what this page called ‘From the Studio‘ can be about. Well, my idea is to streamline all the things that I am currently working on here. It can be anything, photos, bits about my painting process, how various art series develop, sketches, illustrations, links to videos. Unlike the blog posts, this page should make it easier to see the BIG PICTURE.
Since I started to paint and create again I felt really grateful. Sharing the art and the process feels like a right thing to do. And I would love to hear from you. Whether you are an art lover, a professional artist or someone who is starting to paint, to draw, or to color, I would love to hear from you about your experience, what art you appreciate, what you create. So don’t hesitate and message me on my FB page!🙂
From the Studio
So what am I working on right now? Well, the first thing that comes to my mind is that I am thinking. That probably sounds strange, but it is exactly that. I have lots of things I want to do and I am now allowing myself some time to figure out what to focus on.
It is not a surprise though that my thinking and planning has to be accompanied by drawing, doodling, mind mapping. I do write a lot of things down, then draw mind maps, pictures, diagrams, story-boards. It is all part of the process that I love. 🙂
Some of my main projects:
NEVER STOP DREAMING
Never Stop Dreaming series started with pencil drawings, then developed into digital color pictures, became part of 2018 Printable Calendar, and now it is available as PRINTS and on home decor PILLOWS for purchase. A preview of original sketches and final color images is in the Illustration page of my Portfolio. I might use some new media to continue with this project, but not sure about it yet. 🙂
There is also A Mini Adult Coloring Book that features 10 of my favourite illustrations from this series. You can read more about the coloring book here. 🙂
More or less abstract landscapes, sketching, painting with acrylics. Now taking inspiration in winter mountains where we went skiing for this year spring break. But I already did an Acrylic Paintings Series of ABSTRACT LANDSCAPES based on our summer travels and some on my imagination. The Abstract Landscapes are done in acrylics on canvas. All paintings are framed and available for purchase.
This is an old love story of mine. 🙂 I live in Prague and love the city. So drawing and painting it comes naturally to me. You can check the 2017 Catalogue of the large canvases of Prague paintings. I paint the streets, historical buildings, the riverbank, cafes, views, exterior as well as interior. For painting Prague I love using oil paints on canvas, but doing pencil sketches and digital color illustrations is also fun. It is possible that some of my Prague drawings will make it into a new coloring book.
Some recent pictures of PRAGUE that became popular are available as merch or prints in my online shop. Like the Tote Bag with a night picture of the Dancing House below.
This is a new one! I have not done people much for some time. And I would like to go back to it. Let’s see how it goes. 🙂 One idea is to do sketches and paintings based on photos, portraits or full body. I will also work on COMMISSION. You can check my previous figure paintings in the Portfolio.
Last year I created a coloring book from my illustrations called “Fantastic Landscapes“. There is a page you can check which is dedicated to the coloring book along with the illustrations. It is published on Amazon.
Creating coloring books is not my main focus but I want to be putting out what I call “Mini Coloring Books” for adults. Those will be probably PDF printables. At this moment I am finalizing the first Mini Coloring Book that is part of Never Stop Dreaming Series.
More is happening in the studio which is not to be disclosed until I am ready. I might put out some fun videos about the creative process and maybe even some tutorials. Will keep you posted. 🙂
