Good work Olga. I find it's usually quite difficult to work with black and white in a painting. This has a nice touch of spontaneity about it, and expresses very well the silence and bleakness of a moonlit winter landscape under snow. Did you paint from memory, or is this a scene from your studio window?

As we're quite interested here in the process of making art, Olga, why not upload some of your sketches?

Here's a nice example of one of your fellow artists. Hillel had uploaded his paintings and then decided to show some of the preparatory studies. In them, he appears to have resolved a lot of the visual structure before moving on to the canvas:

That sure is a sombre self portrait Olga. Very different that what I'd usually expect - artists normally paint themselves in strong lighting with a critical or favourable gaze, whereas here you've almost disappeared into the murky cityscape at your back. You're hardly discernable from your surroundings. Will you tell us something about this work?
