Watercolour was the first medium that I learned to paint with. The medium that is not easy to work with. To keep it fresh you have to work quickly and with precision. It requires hours of practice to perfect a technique and a great affinity with the medium will take you there.

St-Petersburg is one of my favourite subjects, which I never tire to paint and draw. From the end of May to the beginning of June in St-Petersburg you can see an amazing natural wonder the White Nights. It is time when darkness is about half an hour long. There are no people on the streets only magnificent architecture to enjoy and paint.

I find everything easy to depict in watercolour, as it is one of my favourite mediums: flowers, still life or portraits, I do many watercolour portraits by order, as I love to paint people.
