Garden of Stones. [29 Apr 2013|05:40pm]

rmonakhov
Quite recently at that place it was possible to observe different industrial and urban stuff ... Here were buildings of the rolling mill, founded on June 21, 1857 . It started out as a "company for the production of bronze and iron foundry products", then became the "nail factory". After the nationalization it starts bear the proud name of "Red nailer." You know, at those days everything that was good or important was "Red"... Today it turned into a garden of stones...

Autumn beach. [03 Sep 2012|10:42am]

rmonakhov
Last week by chance I spent some time in Zelenogorsk. One more time I assured that in the autumn beaches are so attractive in terms of painting. There is a sort of something in it ... Don't even know how to call it ... But it's not important at all ... Here is the picture that came out of that :)

Summer evening at Pryazhka river. [24 Aug 2012|01:55pm]

rmonakhov
Summer is almost over and everything is refilled with color. And this is so good.
Almost 20 years ago, we were playing on the frame of this building and we were absolutely confident that it would never be filled with life - that was the times of a full swing "perestroyka" around and familiar world just was rolling into the chaos. But, nevertheless, the building were finished, and it works. At least so far ... 
But this is not what I was interested in - colours are playing in the last rays of the sun in such a gorgeous way :)

The Dark Carriage. [12 Aug 2012|10:39am]

rmonakhov
Can't say that I like the subway. Actually I don't like it at all. However, as the theme, the subway is quite interesting. At least, for the one who are interested in industrial objects, mechanisms, and similar things, like me.
That this is a story about the dark subway car...

A couple of weeks ago we went to the Mariinsky. That was pretty well: in addition to opera impressions, I found an idea for this canvas...

Kanonersky tunnel. [16 Jul 2012|03:21pm]

rmonakhov
Here is, would seems to be worn to holes subject about the light at the end of the tunnel. But this is only "seemingly", because I was more interested in the light not in the end, but in the inside of the tunnel. With a light at the end of the tunnel everyone has their own relationship, but for some reason noone thinks about the light inside the tunnel. But in vain... Curious effects arise there...

Here's a view from the window of one of the classrooms of Design School, where I teach :) 
I was considering it with interest and pleasure for a long time, and now behold, I decided to paint it ...

Truncated boughs. [06 Jun 2012|12:19am]

rmonakhov
Finally finished engraving on a cardboard, which I've started a couple of months ago .
As always mirrored :) Every time working with cardboard, I forget that the print is going to be mirrored comparing to the plate...
That's interesting, what could it be? I always remember to reflect an image when working on etchings, in monoprints — almost never forget to :)
But in the cardboard — always forget...

Twilight on the route to Livorno. [19 May 2012|02:41am]

I continue to work with the materials, brought from Tuscany plain-air ...
By this road we drove to the sea, to Livorno. It says just everything :)

Tuscan sunset. [13 May 2012|09:23am]

I began to work with impressions from our marvelous plain-air ...
Tuscan sunset is fleeting, but has amazing color and unusual, at least for me, light. Here's a story of a Tuscan sunset ...

November 1812. [02 Apr 2012|03:57pm]

rmonakhov
The Soviet people in a single impulse is going to celebrate the two hundredth anniversary of the 1812 war.
Well then what an artist, should do? He is a member of the society :) And he also should not stand in the party  :)
In general, this is kind of a joke, but the thing came out like this...

Advice? [13 Mar 2012|05:35pm]

lauraj_2012

I need to make some little sculptures, about 17cm high, casting them with a latex mould. They will be painted (by kids) and then left outdoors, so need to be waterproof. Does anyone know:

1.)   What I should cast them in? I’m looking for something like Plaster of Paris, i.e. white, and giving a surface on which I can paint, but waterproof. I saw something called Cassini’s Outdoor – is that any good?

2.)   What they should then be painted with? Poster paints? Acrylics? It’s OK if they then have to be painted over with some sort of varnish / sealant to make them waterproof, but it’d be great if there was a paint that’d be waterproof straight away. And it’s be absolutely perfect if it was very safe for children, i.e. not toxic.

3.)   If they do then have to be painted with some other sealant to be waterproof – what’s best?

I’m looking for materials that are available in the UK – and that will stand up to the UK climate! Thanks.

Frosty evening. Engraving on cardboard. [13 Mar 2012|12:29pm]

rmonakhov
What a stupid mistake I've done... I completely forgot, that impression is going to be mirrored, and remembered, of course, only when I've already made two-thirds of the work...
Well...  Let it be mirrored then :)

Gasholder in frosty morning. [10 Mar 2012|11:27am]

Despite the fact that winter is driving me nuts a little, I continue to paint winter landscapes :)
No matter how cold and nasty is outside, anyway, there's always could be found some kind of beauty...
For example, gasholder ...

Still life with camomiles. Etching. [16 Feb 2012|01:34pm]

And that's yet another "perspectiveless" still life. As usual for me etching follows the painting :) One plate multy colour print.

Such a dramatic story played out in my courtyard ... It was said that they are using green paint in other places. It could be so for reasons of humanity ... I do not know ... And we have — that's so brutal ...

Frosty evening. [05 Feb 2012|10:11pm]

Frost is unpleasant because of cold. But at the same time it's absolutely beautiful. In my opinion, of course :)
The frosty air gets some new quality. Especially at night ... I'm already watching this frosty air for a week or about that...

High Water. [12 Jan 2012|12:58pm]

rmonakhov
Instead of snow and frost, just before the New Year, we had the high water... Even the closed dam did not prevent the water from rise and stand, almost flush with the side walks. It would be a huge remiss not to paint this :)
