  • girl in white

    Fast sketches made in a nearby cafe. I had extra 40min of time and a new sketchbook, so took time to make some drawings experiencing a friable quality of a new sketchbook paper :)

  • Anna, ballerina, 10min

    Some more drawings of glorious Anna. Our administration invited a young and awesome ballerina Anna to pose for us. I've seen ballerina fro the first time (except of stage of course, but it's very different). She was radiant and I've had almost three hour…

  • Morozov garden, gouache

    The final painting of Morozov garden I made at home. A historical garden in the city center, that all our famous people enjoyed - Tchaikovsky, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy and etc. It was a private garden open to public before the Soviet period, city garden duri…


  • Morozov garden, charcoal

    I was not satisfied with a watercolour (www.flickr.com/photos/kirikdesign/90378 43453/) from the same spot and decided to make a drawing. My problem with tone and understanding of depth became even worse in charcoal. It made me make a one more study of a…

    Moscow's city plan could be best described as a system of circles with the very first ring Kremlin in the middle. The next one also very old is called the White City, some of it's walls still exist (you can see it on a drawing). Very beautiful and authent…

  • summer renovation

    We live in a modest city district, where most of inhabitants own or rent apartments in low-cost Soviet blocks. Most of them (as well as we are) prefer to make renovations by themselves, saving funds and working at nights. Men send kids and wives to summer…


  • Kamergerski pereulok

    I sat at the foot of Anton Chekhov's monument under the lilac bushes. This corner of the most popular walking street is always empty, no tea or coffee served on granite pedestal. Seen by no one I observed a city diversity. A luxurious cafe at the left w…
