A detail of the finished painting! You can view it soon at my Solo Exhibition in Akaroa Orion Powerhouse Gallery 20th of January till 4th of February. I have a beautiful frame in mind for it. Today I am going spend in my garage framing few pieces. Tomorrow is going to be too hot for it – definately a beach day! #contemporarypainting #oilpainting #impressionism #realism #fineart #artist #nzartist #nzart #allaprimapainting #instaart #artistonistagram #svetlanaorinko#rosemarybrushes #whiteroses

"Ugly Duckling" 160x220mm a smallest painting at my upcoming Solo Exhibition in Akaroa Orion Powerhouse Gallery 20thJan-4Feb. The biggest one is 1500x1000mm is oil and over 30 paintings in between. There are lots of subject matters: landscapes, still life, animals, people and of course florals! In watercolour and oil. Variety is a spice of life! Especially for me with my Art. #watercolorpainting #aquarelle #акварель #painting #instaart #artistonistagram #nzartist #art #svetlanaorinko #rosemarybrushes #danielsmithwatercolors

Working long hours to finish it for my upcoming Solo Exhibition on 20th of January in Orion Powerhouse Gallery in Akaroa. Details in my previous post.

I am donating this painting for Charity Auction BNZ Crusades Batting for Cystic Fibrosis. It will be auctioned on 10th December at Boy's High School Straven Rd, Christchuch 11am-5pm. Why painting of Roses? Well, there is a beautiful story behind it. And to make it short Cystic Fibrosis sound like 65 roses to a child. I choose to paint one rose with few supporting buds it is just as beautiful as 65! #roses #contemporarypainting #oilpainting #impressionism #realism #fineart #artist #nzartist #nzart #allaprimapainting #instaart #artistonistagram #svetlanaorinko

It's 33C Celica outside! We don't have this too often in Christchurch. I take the opportunity to stretch my linen canvases as its relaxes in hot dry weather and tightens up when cold and damp. Cotton does the opposite. Here is the tip: Hot and dry – stretch linen, cool and damp – stretch cotton. That of course if you do your own .#linencanvas #contemporarypainting #oilpainting #impressionism #realism #fineart #artist #nzartist #nzart #allaprimapainting #instaart #artistonistagram #svetlanaorinko
