I made more progress today! I can admit, I do have a problem: I like starting new painting but often struggle to finish it. I have about 7 paintings that I told myself I need to finish before I start another one! Does anyone else there feeling the same? #watercolorpainting #aquarelle #paintingflowers #hellebore #winterrose #svetlanaorinko #artistonistagram #madewithlove #watercolor_inlove #watercolor_planet #watercolor_art #creativeripplecommunity #contemporarypainting

The detail of the painting I have started two years ago!!! I couldn't finish it at the time as the size on the paper has disappeared somehow. I am using different techniques now and it looks like I can rescue it and hope not all lost. #watercolorpainting #aquarelle #paintingflowers #peonies #peonieroses #svetlanaorinko #watercolor_inlove #watercolor_art #watercolor_planet

Another landscape from me. I took away so much inspiration from our 5-day PleinAir in Akaroa with @watercolournewzealand, I will be painting this beautiful part of even more beautiful New Zealand from time to time in between my other favourite subjects. #watercolour #watercolorpainting #aquarelle #nzlandscape #landscapepainting #svetlanaorinko #artistonistagram #madewithlove

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

On the way to Stony Bay, Bank Peninsula Watercolour on paper 500x700mmEvery painting is a problem solving exercise. It's hard mental work! People often think it relaxing and fun. Well, not if you a professional artist creating serious body of work. #watercolorpainting #aquarelle #nzlandscape #landscapepainting #pasture #sheepfarming #hills #svetlanaorinko #supportlocalartists #contemporarypainting #creativeripplecommunity

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
