Elena with her new friend Jasper. My first mohair teddy! I am hooked on the process and look forward to make few more! Love being creative with fabrics too, my childhood dream was to become fashion designer. Being an Artist in former Soviet Union wasnt an option then. #handmadetoys #madewithlove #teddybear #svetlanaorinko

When working on my watercolours I always think of how I can incorporate in my design/ composition light against dark and dark against light. Like here part of the poppy stem is negative and other part positive, making it more interesting and pleasing to the eye. Have you noticed my "cauliflower" happy accident, not quite! , but deliberately made. It paint itself like a flower! That's why I am in love with watercolour! If you know how you can make it paint itself. #watercolorpainting #aquarelle #paintingflowers #poppies #icelandpoppies #watercolor_inlove #watercolor_planet #watercolor_art #svetlanaorinko #artistonistagram #madewithlove #supportlocalartists

Over the holiday season I have been creative in the kitchen making my own chocolate from scratch (cacao nibs). Its such a wonderful medium to express your creativity! I Love chocolate and I am sure you too!!! I have been learning from professionals one of them is raw chocolatier @amylevin_ and here is my experiments with raw, organic, vegan and sugar free stone ground chocolate. Totaly guilt free! I make sure that my ingredients are ethnically sourced after watching documentary on Netflix about cacao farming. So far only my friends and family enjoying it but who knows one day I may get orders…#rawchocolate #rawveganchocolate #svetlanaorinko #madewithlove

I have finished this commission painting and framed it. I have found a perfect moulding for it this time. Often I have to create a suitable finish to match the colours. But this green is nicely compliment other greens in the painting. Spent a bit of time on the mount, creating depth between 2 sheets. All in concervation museum quality stuff. To preserve artwork for generations. This is why I frame it myself as I know exactly whats need to be around my painting. #watercolorpainting #aquarelle #watercolor_inlove #framingart #svetlanaorinko #artistonistagram #madewithlove
