From the Brush of Artist - My name is Marina Ignatova. I'm from Tolyatti, Russia. I've graduated Moscow Technological Institute as fashion designer. A few years ago I realized that painting is my biggest passion. As far as I can remember myself I was painting pictures but I've started draw in watercolor only two years ago.
At the beginning it was just a small hobby. Sketches that I was drawing for myself and uploaded to Instagram. Now hobby has grown into something bigger. Today I have contracts for limited editions apparel and bed linen paintings, thematic paintings, landscapes and still lifes. I've started to give lessons to students.
I love watercolour for its specificity: blurring, conventionality, the flow of color from one to another, mixing. I draw paintings in realistic style but like to try something new and uncover paint's hidden potential. I draw in a quick manner to complete painting in one session. Starting from the silhouette and ending with small details.
I like light and simple watercolour paintings. Sometime it's better to leave unfinished work than make it overcomplicated. I like do draw everything: people, animals, flowers, sceneries. Even try to find beauty in daily routines. Maybe it's just because i haven't found my own unique style.
I draw a lot of animals. watercolor's "wet" technique can create awesome fur texture. And when you draw flowers watercolor uncovers it's true potential — bright and light transparency.
