Be Inspired.

The new collection 2020 is ready.
The last painting of this year has been completed.
Now we need to do some things: photos, descriptions, additional photos. Then choose images for the album. Make up and order the 2020 album ... and you can go to the winter schedule.
Reflect, sum up small results, think about the pictures of the next year. It will be dark for painting in Prague until the end of February. I will do various things that I wanted to do, but they did not fit into my days during the year.
Among the winter I paint a summer.
Fill up with color!

Dear Art Lovers,
Winter has officially arrived.
Oh my my what a week, what a year, what a world we live in. No?

1.Finally a large size painting arrived this year! 
Wonderful impressions of this summer in France embodied in the painting Under Magnolia Tree. 
The whole atmosphere of this lovely old house and garden, simple tasty food, clean air, friends, dogs, flowers, sky give a feeling of pure joy and peace.
2. I got really into art deco patterns this spring. I made several series of graphic works and it came back to me in the fall with a Lady in the Armchair in Art Deco Style on canvas.
 
3. And Flowers… joy and perfection…all this year I painted flowers! 
Summer refreshes the artist's palette. Summer gives us flowers and colour generously. But autumn gives the bright colours of summer a special richness and sophistication.

What is the best way to show the artwork online?

This is, of course, a question.

On the one hand, flickering and an abundance of additional photographs distract from the actual work.

On the other hand, a painting is, in a sense, an object, and here it is already important what surface, scale in the interior, there is a frame or not, and there are many other details. How to show all this in order to support the viewer in his intention to purchase a painting?

During the 15 years of our gallery's existence in an old, poorly adapted space in the center of Prague, it seems to me that we have learned to "show" paintings. But online?

So,you have to think.

Here are some of the presentation photos to share with you:

1. Painting in the interior, next to a chair, wardrobe or table.

2. Framed painting, if any.

3. Painting on a working easel.

4. Painting at an angle to show the side and surface.

5. A fragment of the work

6. Painting on the wall

The TOPIC of FEBRUARY is DRAWING:

✏️⏳ I have made plenty of sketches and drawings with models a few years ago, almost 30 gestures. Just for refresh my skills.
After that I closed the folder with all these drawings and forgot about them for 2 years.
It seems time has come to return to them this February.
Still winter now, there is almost no sun in Prague, what should I do?
Work with drawings, arrange them, try different materials and papers…It seemed to me that this is the best solution for today.
So I play and enjoy the seeming lightness:
