Watching the waves


I just came back from a short vacation in tropical Riviera Maya, where I spent much time trying to capture the shapes of sea waves in my sketchbook. There is something very relaxing, almost therapeutic in watching the waves.
Now, back to work and catching up with the real world...

New year, new hope

 Happy New Year to everyone! 

Although, we know that the start of the new year is kind of arbitrary, every year we mark this date with a hope for a new beginning. I truly hope that 2016 will be much better than the past one, which I was very glad to see off.
I am starting off with something new. In addition to another acrylic, I decided to try figure painting. Two out of five attempts turned out decent. Someone asked me how I would paint the new year. I remembered part of the lyrics of a Bulgarian song "naked, unapologetic and young"...
