Blue flowers painting
Nadezhda Bogomolova’s deft watercolor brush has created an explosion of cobalt blue cornflowers punctuated by picturesque daisies in various poses, from shy to buoyant. Clearly, the wet-on-wet technique is the artist’s forte. The vibrancy of the colors in this blue flowers painting is astounding. Each tone is a gem akin to lapis lazuli or other precious stones. In front of the blue cornflowers display, a bevy bright white daisies dance to an unheard tune. They enliven the subject of cornflowers and daisies and render it a bouquet of nature. Or maybe it is a small corner of the artist’s personal world. See another amazing painting of daisies by Nadezhda Bogomolova.
Mystery and Magic
Ms. Bogomolova enjoys the ease, lightness, and transparency of watercolor from the brush’s first stroke to the very end of the artwork process. She says that watercolor is so unpredictable, especially how colors blend into each other. Paint and subjects can take new shapes quite different than initially planned.
It is a miracle of the liquid medium that renders the most trustworthy forms into transparent wonders. Watercolors give endless opportunities with the light-filled washes and translucent shapes. Watercolours can produce painting effects not afforded to other mediums.
Each technic leads to a completely different result. Artist Bogomolova says that you never know from the beginning. It has its own mysterious life and its own magical way. See here how the blue cornflowers and daisies sit before a fading green expanse of simple foliage. See how the artist highlights some aspects of blue flowers painting with a more opaque touch.
Materials and medium
The magic comes from the watercolor medium and the use of fine art ARCHES paper from France. This high-quality surface is acid-free, 100% cotton, 300 gsm cold-pressed, measuring 30×56 inches.
It is a watercolorist’s preference for its strength and durability, not to mention its ability to preserve the essence of the technique for ages.
