Paint from heart

Original watercolor painting by Olga Peregood. Private collection

Hello!
This is the end of a year and I want to wrap my thoughts about my art and think about future plans. This year is very exploitative. I wear myself with different roles according to my art, experimented, I was brave enough to do things just for try before I decide like or no. The more roles I explore the more opened I became to something new. There is no thing on my way, which I is "yes, that's it!". I'm still learning and searching.

The more I step on my curious journey the clearly see things that I did from my heart. And I'm so happy such things emerged. So my plan for next year is keeping the way I do things from my heart.

I'm thankful I have the possibilities to paint almost every day and to share my art with the world. I'm thankful new people that let me know what they think about my teaching. Now I understand what and how to make better and even more exciting.

I had so complex and replete year I can't imagine where I will be in the next. I wish everyone explore as much as you can and enjoy both success and mistakes on your art journey. I wish everyone be brave to move from your comfort zone and try new things before you decide like it or not.

What makes you a professional

Hi, everyone! It was most of the complex time of my life. New country, new life, changes, transformations. New role as a professional artist, watercolorist and a teacher. And the most exciting as well. I met so many wonderful and talented artists and friends. I had happy days. With my art and continue to paint helped overcome the most hardest and unhappy days.

I learned so much. I figured out that your growth as a professional it's not about just became a master of techniques and ability to capture different subjects with excitement. It's about be strong and continue do what you do in the most dark and hardest time in life. When everyone give up and fall, continue to go your way and your dreams.

Next day I posted Santa snow come. I get up in the morning and saw spectacular Christmas scene behind my window. Everything was white, perfect lighting and I painted as I missed this white daylight I didn't enjoy so long time!

I thought a great way to start my Christmas sale, wrap all tutorials made in 2015 in one set.

I don’t really have a good eye of an artist like you do


Bruno watercolor portrait in process by Olga Peregood

Hi, there! Watercolor is so beautiful medium in process when colors are still wet. I want to sit and enjoy watching colors mixed together and how new watermarks forms as time goes by and painting dries, imagining possibilities I can use those for painting.

BUT. There are several issues came from my students: "I don’t really have a good eye of an artist like you do. You’re able to see the roses, faces, leaves hidden in the paint and brought them to life. It amazed me".

I became an artist not in one day as my skill to see future subject in wet blur wash.  I learned. And I know how hard it in the beginning to believe you can. That is why I love to share. And I am still learning and want you too! If you watched my "Watercolor Treasure Chest" I explained in details how to build your skill and open your imagination.

I can't wait tomorrow morning I continue to work on Bruno portrait. Bruno was rescued from Mexico and now he is adopting in Canada.

I did it again!

Original "Someone's Lovely Puppy" and "Blue Jay" watercolors by Olga Peregood demonstrated LIVE on Periscope @ladywonderbrush

Hi, there! I did it again. During my today`s afternoon painting demonstration I have so much fun.

The idea to make Periscope sessions come from this blog from favorite topic "Behind My Shoulders", where I am sharing how I paint in real timeline and in real stages in process, where I am painting just for myself not for demonstrations, tutorials, not for my paintings to be sold, where I haven't limits in time, deadlines, etc. There truly I am painting.

For today's Periscope session I've demonstrated a puppy and a bird in watercolor. So my viewers might follow me and figure out how the paintings  develop in real timeline in stages.

On my tutorials you can see how painting magically appears just in 20 minutes! I don`t want to deceive my viewers as for filming process I should speed up, also film goes through editing process with cutting.

So why I really love Periscope is because this is real life is going on here. There is no glam, editing, scenario. Here I can freely share the atmosphere while I am painting.



Thank everyone who joined me and enjoyed watching how "Someone's Lovely Puppy" and "Blue Jay" paintings magically appears on my easel.

Now I can't wait tomorrow afternoon I can continue work on tail for blue jay and fur for puppy! If you interested join me on Periscope, you are welcome! There will be a link on my Twitter when it happens. It will available 24 hours  for replay. So if you go on my Twitter before 1:22 PM - 30 Oct 2015 you might watch my session.
