AUTHOR'S PAINTINGS

The painting on the silver-plated board. It is a complicated technology, which has its roots in the beginning of panel paintings and icons. On a wooden canvas I put a plurality layers of mortar, built upon glue and chalk. On such prepared board, I put a thin layer of soil-binder, whereby silver flakes sticks. In this case corroded metal, had oxidized, giving an interesting color effect. And that's what inspired me to paint silver clouds on the sky at sunset and the sea with bather. Wonderful in this technique is that the light, depending on viewing angle, brakes on the surface differently each time, changing colors of the image.
