Practicing watercolors

This media is not one of my strong points, that is for sure. In spite of it I am posting these, just to show I’m trying to improve my skills. Painting on a small paper, also not my strong points – I love to paint big paintings – so I do not end up drawing which is easy to do when a painting small canvases. as you can see…

I have not added anything here for ages – so that is the reason I’m  embarrassing myself by posting these..

Published by Ritva Sillanmäki Photography

I’m a student of life; I see beauty in nature, people and the world around me, small details and complete view. Without the ability to actualize an idea or concept, art would not exist. My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that I have about myself and the world I live in. I do not limit myself to one medium, style, or concept. Inspiration and ideas change. My knowledge changes and grows. Each piece I create is simultaneously an extension from the past, where I’ve come from and what I’ve learned, as well as a preview of the future, where I’m going. I do not classify myself as just a photographer, as some might think from looking at my work. I am a sculptor, a painter, a photographer, an artist. If a viewer stops for just a moment to view and reflect on a photograph, a photo collage or a painting I have created, then I have succeeded in my work.
