Art of the Week Guest post: Olga Krasnova

A couple of years ago I went to the exhibition of Sergey Andriaka’s works, one of Russia’s famous modern watercolor artists. It was like getting into summer in the middle of winter – his stunning bouquets of lilacs, peonies, chrysanthemums, landscapes and still lifes immediately made you forget about the cold wind and snow outside and carried you away to green meadows and forests full of beautiful flowers.  I was really impressed by his works and I still remember how his pictures filled me with joy – it was like enjoying the first sunny day, even though it was indoors.

S. Andriaka, Volga Landscape, 2008

S. Andriaka, A Vase of Orchids, 2005

Olga is a translator in Moscow and a frequent traveler to Italy and the United States.

Here is a story on the opening of the exhibition, and Andriaka’s unique watercolor technique.
