I'm Vilena, botanical watercolor artist from Moscow, Russia.
All my life I was associated with art and culture. And couple years ago I became interested in botanical art.
One of the reasons why I chose this direction: I am allergic to flowers, but I am fascinated by all these shades of color, stamens, details, and I want to transfer all this beauty in my works so that I can admire them without suffering from sneezing!
My today's goals, as artist, is to paint series of tropical flowers from my trips to Thailand and improve my skills to the perfection.
I often use wet techniques and glazes, but most of all I love working in dry technique with details.
As I have already mentioned: streaks, stamens, texture are my love!!
I'm always open to dialogue :)
