Senses of Kandinsky

We all have colors surrounding us.  The key is to notice…a color that makes sense for you, that corresponds and reflects with you.  Often, we are looking for something new and interesting outside, at a distance to what we know or is available at that moment…like colors of dawn or dusk away from home, spring or fall colors in popular destinations.

Reading art books of world-famous painters gives me a completely new view of colors themselves and their surroundings to find them.  I am fascinated by abstract painter Wasilly Kandinsky.

I love colors with all my soul and being.  With this project, my approach was very similar.  In most cases, I looked to travel for new inspiration.

The color with the full specter of feeling, even associations near you daily.  You may touch them almost every day.

With just a few seconds more attention to an apple, or a pear that is shining under sunlight leaks, I can feel Autumn's warm touch, even in February.

Pomegranate carmine red color privately attracts the attention of my eyes and does not want to give it back to others.

The sparkling fresh citrus aroma slice of a lemon, and my eyes are opened from routine, as a minimum for a short break.

Following to shapes of strawberries, I can feel a sweet taste in my mouth immediately.

While all of them together dancing around with clear promises – we will go out soon!

With a light touch of the ICM photography technique, I enjoyed a full palette of colors and senses.

And I discovered a new possibility to combine my free sketches with ICM, to paint abstract paintings with a photo camera.
