The wonderful world of watercolor maestro Alexander Votsmush (P-1)

Under - Art, Illustration, Inspiration

This is by far the most impressive watercolor artwork that I’ve seen. The artist is nothing but a genius and a living legend. I never have seen or experienced his kind of watercolour on paper which is full of life, energy, depth, narrative and humour in some cases. It is impossible to fully put down feelings into words. Votsmush’s grip on the medium, mood, subject and overall context in every single piece is mesmerising making you feel as if it is not painted on paper with a paint brush but with a magical wand.

Alex Votsmush lives partly in Russia and partly in Ukraine. I wanted to share more here about him but due to the language barrier I had to confine myself to what I could get from him.

I wasn’t able to fit Votsmush’s work into one post therefore covering it into three separate posts so keep watching the space.

Joshua Suda and the broad street of realism

Under - Art, Illustration, Inspiration

These incredibly ultra-photorealistic paintings are an intimate blend of fantasy and reality, blurring the line between life and art. Eyes, torn paper, ripped photographs, frames and engaging expressions, Josh Suda’s work is inviting with everlasting impressions.

He currently works in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, USA and is one of the founding members of The Broad Street Studio, an artist group dedicated to showcasing and promoting realism with tooth.

A Timelapse Journey with Nature

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media, Nature, Photography


This timelapse showreel is a collection of some of the best Nature moments that Henry Jun Wah Lee captured from 2009 to present.

I grew up in the city — a world constructed of steel, concrete and asphalt. My view of the night sky was the moon and the handful of stars bright enough to outshine the glow of city lights.

My understanding of nature was limited to what I could find at local gardens, parks and zoos. As a kid I never saw the Milky Way with my own eyes. Just on sci-fi television and in books and magazines. My encounters with wild animals were limited to squirrels and pigeons in the city (if those even count as wild).

In 2009, I set out to film nature to share with urban dwellers who, like me, have never ventured outside the routines and comforts of cities. It’s now been two years, many amazing trips, and countless incredible experiences. This film is a compilation of the many highlights captured during this time.

An early winter afternoon in Virginia Water

Under - Art, Inspiration, My Musings, Nature, Photography, Photolog

An early winter afternoon photo shoot at Virginia Water Lake which lies within Windsor Great Park. The lake is mostly in Surrey county, though the western extremities are in the civil parishes of Old Windsor and Sunninghill and Ascot in Berkshire, England.

According to Wikipedia the shores of the lake have recently been used for lakeside scenes in the Harry Potter films. You can view the complete set at Flickr.
