Katerina Stamatelos Blog: New Music composer, pianist, painter, fashion designer, and poetess. Pages are constantly redesigned and new ones are added! I have a serious problem in...keeping up with myself! My interest are too many and take all day's time and beyond. THIS page however is a good starting point! Subscribe to my blog and follow all the exciting news and informational pages!
The information of my blog will be divided into several sub sections: New Music, Composition (in general), Piano Performance, Historical Musicology, Painting, Poetry, Fashion Design, Industrial Design (this covers all products other than strictly Fashion) and pages of general interest (like Insurance, my new sub niche!). Lastly, all pages that have been added (or reconstructed) lately appear regularly at the bottom of this blog!
While you can search for ALL of the titles of my original art by clicking on the left column (under "Art"), here you will find exclusive news. After serious consideration, I have decided to offer affordable, yet quality alternatives to buying my originals. Today, I am presenting to you some Art Prints that come pretty close to the beauty of my original art, yet they remain at very reasonable prices. You can also order them as canvas prints! As these are considered open prints, you can play around with your preferences concerning sizes: the site I am referring you to (Imagekind) offers a wide selection of sizes and options (art print or canvas print) which you can immediately see as applied on a living room wall!
This first painting, under the title Deadly Beauty, carries all the characteristics of my mature mixed media paintings. I personally consider this portrait as one of my strongest works: harsh strokes against a water-color-like treatment of the face and surroundings. Here I have used crayons mixed with gouache. This technique is one of the main characteristics of how well gouache can blend in!
Gouache paint, unlike watercolor, covers all layers below it. This makes the painting process easier, as it feels more direct. For example: when painting flowers with watercolors, a darker background must be carefully painted around the flower. However, with gouache, this is not the case: one can paint light colors on top of darker ones! This is one of the most outstanding gouache painting techniques that brings this paint closer to that of oil painting. And this capability makes this medium quite unique.
Gouache paint is not absorbed into the paper, unlike watercolor. This means that some textural effects are possible. However, if too much paint is used, there is always the danger of the "cracking" of the surface.
The painting below, named "Three Little Girls," rank among my very best! This selection is for the true art lover who appreciates profound works vs "soothing art."
