Shadows on the hills of Hinewai Reserve. Painting landscapes in watercolour is a joy and struggle at the same time. The less layers the fresher it looks but so hard to achieve realistic result in only 1-2 layers. Soft edge is also the hardest one to achieve in watercolour but its most beautiful in my opinion. I have incorporated soft against hard, light against dark and warm against cold to compose this visual harmony. #watercolorpainting #aquarelle #nzlandscape #landscapepainting #tussock #hills #bankpeninsula #svetlanaorinko

Detail of a larger landscape painting that I have been working on. Abstract realism is my aim here. I love abstract as long as its skillfully executed. Unfortunately most abstract art this days is just a cover up for being unable to paint realism. You need to learn How to paint first before moving to abstract or any other form of painting if you want to be able to Express yourself well. #watercolorpainting #aquarelle #nzlandscape #madewithlove #svetlanaorinko #farmanimals #sheep

I like to watch how light changes the painting. This one was done 100% an PleinAir without any touch up in the studio. This doesn't happen to me often. #pleinair #oilpainting #landscapepainting #nzlandscape #newzealand #mountaintop #svetlanaorinko

Delicate petals are such a challenge to paint without overdoing it and still be able to show off all the folds and intricate detail and keeping it fresh and effortless at the same time. There is alot of effort of course going into it but the challenge is to make it look like effortless! This Hellebore kept me busy and preoccupied all day. Hope it will brighten up you day too! #paintingflowers #hellebore #watercolour #watercolorpainting #aquarelle #springflowers #svetlanaorinko #botanicalpainting
