Julia Barminova (@juliabarminova) is my pick for today’s talent!
If you don’t know what A Year on Talents is here you can find the description of the project: A Year on Talents Project
Julia is an artist and teacher from Russia, she likes painting and she also likes yachts! I’m not even joking I know it’s not a common thing to hear but she’s really dreaming of a life on boat and her art truly reflects that. It’s awesome because this passion drew her into painting water and boats so much that she’s now what I will consider the true master of the seas.
On her IG you’ll also find quite a few flowers and a bunch of lanterns, I didn’t include those here because I really wanted to show you her ability with water but if you like the subjects go take a look at her profile!
The first image is one of the best examples of her skills in my opinion, I don’t even know where to start: so there’s an amazing water effect of course, with light reflects. The stairs diving deep underwater and getting more blurry at each step, the ropes on the pole and the algae spreading all over. There’s a general sense of realism in watching all of the details that it’s almost surreal. Beautiful.
In the second picture you can see her painting process. Commenting that precise image she said the pencil drawing takes most of the time while watercolors are fast. I feel this is the right moment to showcase the awesome work she can put up before even touching the watercolors, don’t discount the gorgeous boats she draws, that’s a talent on its own!
