PAINTING TECHNIQUE

My painting technique is multi-layered. At the beginning I use special priming technique, where I obtain salience effect. After this, layer after layer, special texture is formed. The texture resembles mystic baltic culture symbols and Zodiac, ornaments. The Plot of the painting is drawn with Oil on canvas. Canvas are being stretched over the subframe. The painting is being varnished. This painting tehnique provides painting with durability that can last for centuries. From the first step to the framing it takes atleast1 to 3 months for the painting to be completed.
Because of long and complicated artistic and painting process only several of my works are being released every year. You will not find identical plots in any of my works, every work is unique and only one in the world.

„In my works I capture impressions, that I observe in nature, environment and events.
All characters in the paintings are surrounded by play of lightsg and shadows, colors of nature elements and forms, mysticism and simbolism that can be seen in nature. In the portraits, I render characters inner emotions and in the landscapes – colour. „
Yours – Eurika – I capture impressions in my works.
