What I Used for This Painting

Tamdyr, Winter. 2012. Acrylics on canvas. 60x90 cm.

Why This Painting is My Favorite from 2012

The best painting of the year? How difficult to select! My paintings are my children it is so difficult to decide which one I love more. I like my reworked “Portrait of Maya” (first published for the “Moods” project), and many others, and certainly I have had much fun fromthis year's adventures.

I've chosen my reworked “Tamdyr. Winter”. One of the series submitted to the Essence of Season Project, which I painted under the impression of my visit to Giverny and Rouen. I like it for the feeling of serenity it provides and also because the original (bread baking oven) was destroyed and the lovely holy place now exists only in these four pictures.

Lessons Learned

  • I got a very important advice from Marion about composition and reworked the painting. Thank you Marion for this lesson!
