Vladislav Yeliseyev

Sarasota, FL


"Painting on plein air with its ever changing conditions is my passion. I see my paintings as a testament to the natural sources of light. Capturing the mood and telling the story based not on facts but on subtle nuances of the scenery is my aspiration. I am trying to achieve it through tonal balance and color integrity. Watercolor as a medium with its transparency and fluidity plays along quite nicely with technical challenges of painting outdoors."
