More often than not, the artist uses simple, white pottery (which she constructs herself) as a functional canvas for her aquatic designs. "Starting with an idea, my work is an expression of what I find elegant and beautiful in my world," the ceramic-loving creator explains on her website. "Inspiration is seeded in my observations in nature; in capturing colour and narrative with purpose onto clay." While Hukku's love of nature is apparent in her dazzling work, it's her past experiences that truly inspire her to continue as an artist. With this impressive history under her belt, Hukku uses her extraordinary talents to create ceramics that reflect her sophisticated vision.

Though my paintings may appear photoreal my goal is not to reproduce or document faithfully what I see one hundred percent, but also to create the illusion of depth and sense of presence not found in photographs.

tutorial-how-to-draw-a-wave This art tutorial, kindly donated by surfing comic strip illustrator and surf artist Bob Penuelas covers how to draw a wave the Wilbur Kookmeyer way! If you're like me, then you've probably spent a lot of time in high school class daydreaming and doodling a thousand perfect cartoon waves in your notebook. It's safe to say that ninety percent of us surfers have a habit of scribbling perfect waves whenever a pencil is in our hands. Remember, there are millions of ways to draw a wave and hopefully with these simple pointers you'll find a million more. Drawing a basic wave The following illustrations and captions by Bob Penuelas take you through the basic steps of drawing a wave… Step 1 Sketch in the basic shape of the curl, spray, foam and base of the wave. Step 2 Add an extra line running parallel and below the curl line to define the thickness of the lip. Step 3 Add a flow line starting at the lip and curve it around to suggest roundness of the liquid lip. Step 4 Add the rest of the flow lines.

painting-hydrangea-flowers-step-by-step-tutorial Hydrangea flowers have long been a favorite of mine. It looks like a very complicated flower to draw or paint so I was delighted to find this tutorial which shows you very clearly and simply how to paint them. The first step is to have a glance to real flowers. As you have a feeling about it it will be the best base to feel the same during drawing. Draw by pencil or brush a group of hydrangea flowers you choose with several leaves near it. Paint out with white pencil (or watercolor) the ends of the petals as shown. On that picture you can use all colors you like. With a dark red color make several petals more lively. With violet color make gaps between petals deeper. With white again, make smoother the edge between white ends of petals and another colors. Using orange to create sun spots on the petals, let the picture be impregnated with sunpower. Use yellow in the same way. Now we can start on the leaves. As you see, water makes the picture more bright. via

Дневник Michurin_Leon Я такая, как есть, я не буду другой, Я такая, как есть, я останусь такой. Я наивна, бываю, бываю вредна, Но такая, как есть, я на свете одна. Я такая, как есть, я умею любить. Кто увидит меня, тот не сможет забыть. Мария Родина 3
