I like the smell of oil paints. Like, smells like paints, solvents, linen canvas negruntovanny. Like a hand on primed canvas, defining his grit and willingness to work.
Like mystery white nenarisovannyh canvases. Why do they always raznyeN After primed odinakovoN Once I realized: they break future picture. Why do I know: where will prevail, and where nizN I have the feeling now. Or: it breaks me out of nothingness.
But not always a happy combination. Oh, how capriciously painting! Sometimes a picture is not obtained, and it is useless to write a new job. On this canvas you can not work and need to part with it. And it happens: all the cons, but written well. The shop is dark, tired and palette all the colors are messed up, but - hand sold, beautiful strokes and impose themselves.
Or vice versa - Morning, beautiful light, fresh palette, clean the brush - rather than written. It turns from bad to worse. Change your brush - may be in them deloN sometimes up to twenty hands reach. And still does not work. Then all stiraesh one fell swoop - all the day's work. I feel tired and devastation.
But what joy you experience when the picture is!
The original idea comes suddenly. This impulse is necessary to catch the light touch, but rather to remember, to hold in memory. How interesting then to do sketches, collecting material, go to the libraries, even the ride to another city!
This is especially true of historical paintings, which I am very fond of.
I often ask myself the question: painting - is that for hudozhnikaN RabotaN ProfessiyaN or image zhizniN
After all, we are constantly in the mind of mixing paints, May combine figures and objects, memorize those lines, color spots. The work of the soul never stops ...
