Paint Your Heart and Soul 2019 – Registration is now open!

Hello dear art Friend,

I’m very excited to present you with Larger, Better and Improved edition – PYHaS2019!

I’m over the moon happy to host this amazing course for another year and absolutely thrilled to introduce to you our brilliant, talented, extraordinary Artists, who will be teaching in PYHaS2019! Click HERE to find out details!

IMG_88F311856D75-1

In PYHaS2019 we added more lessons to our curriculum, based on academic knowledge, such as: Color Theory, Proportions, Composition and Values (shading)!

But I also wanted to keep Paint Your Heart and Soul enjoyable and relaxing, so lessons are not dependent on each other and you have the freedom to complete lessons in any order. Many students pointed out that this was very important. As a result, PYHaS 2019 is a good mix of academic studies and creative fun!

Our main focus stays on Portraits and Figures: woman, man, children! however students asked for more lessons on a variety of subject matters, and I couldn’t agree more – we need them all to create visual stories! In PYHaS2019 we have more instructors, which means even more lessons, including lessons on painting beautiful landscapes and flowers, pets and other subjects!

For the first time in three years, PYHaS has a theme, or better to say a goal – get loose and expressive! Our wonderful instructors will show you step-by-step how to achieve it!

The price is over 90% off from the value of the course! Only $99 for 55 lessons at least! What???? That’s right! it is less then $2 per lesson while Early Bird offer is still on! (available for limited time only)

Family vacation in Italy

While growing up in Russia, I could have never dreamed that one day I would be able to visit different countries. Italy was always one I was dreaming about.

As a teenager, I was a big fan of Toto Cutugno, who was very popular in Russia at the time. I had a record which I played a million times and fell in love with the sound of Italian language.

Adriano Celentano was a favorite of girls my ageRelated image

Some dreams fortunately do come true. The amount of inspiration is just overwhelming! The architecture, sculptures, fresco paintings are literally breathtaking! The countryside with happy flying colorful bugs in meadows full of flowers made my heart sing to the tunes of Verdi and Puccini! The fashion and even food (especially gelatto for me!) – everything there was calling for a paint brush!

News from my studio

Our vacation ended up just in time to get ready for the upcoming Semiannual Sale event with Heartful Soul Artists Collecive.

This month we will be offering original art which was overlooked and didn’t find its home during our monthly auctions this year. This is a great opportunity to become an  owner of an original piece of art for a discounted price.

I will be offering one painting only, which is now available for the “buy it now” price.

Happy Mother’s Day!

I painted this Angel a while ago and tried to film the process. Eventually my camera decided to record selectively or the Angel wasn’t in the mood for posing… At least it recorded a pretty cool background (well, this is what I think, pretty cool background, yea  ).
I hope this little video will inspire you and you will give a try to create an Angel too.
* I forgot to mute it, so it sounds like a crazy bird on the background – turn off the volume and turn on your favorite music while watching it 🙂

 Happy upcoming Mother’s Day!

Collage course students showcase and a Free video

Hello dear friend,

I was blown away from the outcome from “Collage, Color, Composition” class, and I just couldn’t help myself but share it with you

I loved to create this course and I think it was the most fun course for students I’ve ever made.

The best part of creating collages is that everybody can do it!

Obviously, you have to know composition rules and how to choose a beautiful palette for your work (and this is what this course is about 😉 ), but if you never created art before, you will be able to create a masterpiece with collage.

And it’s also feels great finally to put in use some magazines you just didn’t have a heart to let go, and recycling and creating art at the same time is very satisfying 🙂

The course has 21 videos and it packed with techniques, tips, and hands on!

I divided students showcase into 2 parts: ATC cards and the rest of the projects. I tried to include everyone, who gave me permission to share (thank you guys! ) and I apologize if I missed someone.

The “Collage, Color, Composition” is now available as a self study course and you get an  access to all the course material immediately (well, as soon as I see your purchase, within 24 hours or earlier).

Get $10 OFF, by using Coupon Code: welcome  at checkout.*

* limited time offer

Many of you asked, where could you find the right pictures and what exactly to look at . A FREE Video from Collage, Color, Composition will help you to find those answers.

I hope you feel inspired and already think about to go to your studio and start cutting,  recycling and creating! And making collages as gifts to your friends and family for Valentine’s 😉

Happy creating!

Love, Olga

Xx

A sneak peek inside my studio

Hello dear friend,

I was painting another night and thought I would record the process and set up my camera, which unfortunately run out of buttery in the middle. But I hope that this little video will get you inspired and get you going.

The pencil I used is a Carbon pencil. Later I added Conte and White Gesso.

I felt really good after finishing this!It took away this stress all of us have. Usually I’m not talking much about how healing art could be, but it really is!

I hope you will paint something today!

Hugs,

Olga
