General Information   and   Bio-Statement​
General Information:
Ths information is for those who would like to purchase originals or Gicleé (zhee-clay) prints. The pictures are offered unframed. It will be up to the skills  of the buyer's framer to select appropriate framing to match the decor to please the owner.
Originals
The originals are painted with watercolors  or acrylic on watercolor and/or Yupo paper or on the Aquabord.  Pastels are painted on special type of pastel paper or sandpaper.The pastel and watercolor originals must be protected  by glass, plexiglass or archival acrylic coating to protect the art from dust, humidity, scratching and other damages. The acrylic varnish coating is gaining more acceptance even so it is violating the basic pure watercolor societies rule that any coating will change the watercolor picture into mixed media painting.

What are Giclee' Prints?
Giclee' prints are high qulity digital reproductions of the original artwork using professional ink-jet printers that require light-fast, pigment based inks on archival substrates (paper, canvas). The Giclee' prints have light fastness rating over 100 years but they have to be protected like the originals above.
Purchase Information:
If you like any of my pictures and would like to purchase either the original or the Giclee' print. Just send me an email. I will send you pricing information for the picture(s) with estimated shipping and handling charges.

Vladimir's Statement
I was captivated by the transparency an luminiscence of watercolors. It is unique to any other media, and if correctly applied, can be very rewarding. In the beginning I considered my engineering background as a minus until I realized that I can take advantage of it. Analyzing everything and understanding the principles of visual art and developing an ability to express my thought in a form of created art must be an advantage!

I am studying the different styles, techniques, and different media of the old and present masters and trying to apply everything I learn. I am inspired by many subjects surrounding us. This is a gratifying and relaxing way to express my feelings.

Enjoy my art and thank you for visiting my website.
