A Space Wanderer pendant. Like many other people I am the one who needs variety and novelty as the air. I love wandering into all sorts of creative fields: painting, drawing, textiles, jewellery making, photography, 3d modeling, sculpting, card making, graphic design, interior decorating... also writing which I was neglecting recently... I give one activity some priority for a few weeks or months then I need to switch to another for a while. But I think during the last few years I've finally worked out the favorite underlying theme of all of my pursuits: space travel and fantasy.

This is another recently reworked painting, the landscape from my front porch, some buildings removed, a couple of #towers added. Acrylics and inks. Probably this is something well known, but I've discovered for myself how to zoom out and flip without stopping painting in real life. Stand about 2 meters away from a big mirror, holding your #painting as a shield and your pen or brush as a sword. Paint or draw looking in the mirror. If the room is dark you start to see the big picture even better, see the composition. Extremely fun. Another interesting thing is that when I paint digitally I often do "undo" when a line didn't go exactly where I wanted it. And then I do "redo" because that actually was fine. Lots of things are not in your total control but when you create it is you who decides what is good - at the end. Art is impossible without free will. #freedomofwill #paintings #artprocess #paintingprocess #Newtownpowys #живопись #acrylicpainting #acrylicandink #arte #wales #linandaras_art #VopreKin

Blue Eyed Mimosa. Mimosa is one of my favorite flowers, bringing up lots of childhood memories of Russia where it is very popular and grown in some parts of the country. I started painting this plant from imagination and the first iteration was nice and conventional, just yellow flowers and swirling blue green leaves. It was exhibited a few times and praised by some people. Not good enough till it finds its home. I am learning to treat the first versions of paintings as "beta releases" so I reworked it significantly afterwards. I love science fiction and fantasy and decided that "out of this world" version fits better with what I generally do. So the flowers got veins and the cute blue eyes. I used a variety of acrylic paints and ink, including pearlescent and metallic, the painting is glazed. Due to its shine it is very difficult to photograph with uniform brightness. #linandaras_art #artwork #floralmadness #eyes #alienflora #scifiart #мимоза #глаза #otherworld #фантастика #arte #peinture NFS at the moment as I've submitted it to an exhibition / competition.

People Ruling the Waves. Not being carried by the tide but riding it - is the human nature. This is my sketchbook pen, acrylic and ink doodle which I am trying on a virtual canvas on a virtual wall. It might be a painting one day. #linandaras_art #sketchingfantasy #symbolism #VopreKin #canvasart #futurepainting #orangeturquoise #violetmauve #arte #personas #рисунок #люди #волны Print at @society6
