About this all I want to tell you, my readers.
And now all news …
First , the site I have been working with for 2+ years is  www.artfinder.com/helen-polishuk#
First changes in 2019 (5)
It is English site.Best English website for artists.
I am very accustomed to it. It is family-owned, limited, simple, but rather conservative in terms of attitude both to artists and to the evaluation of our works.
The site is changed this year.
It’s about payments, but more about screening out artists.
New working conditions with him are introduced.
The artists were divided into three categories, the first one is free, but at least 30 paintings are on sale and 40% goes to the site from the sale of the painting.
The second – 33% goes to the site, also a limit of up to 50 paintings and $ 5 per month payment. A third of 33% of the price of the picture goes to the site, no limit for exhibiting paintings and $ 15 per month.
I do not know why, the site blocked the use of Paypal, which made it difficult for me to sell the paintings since last fall. I was out  of  Canada to regulate the banking process. In general, all this concerns tax changes. Because there are strict changes.

I continue to work with this site. I limit the display of my paintings there, but I will develop and develop myself in other places.
So, I improve this my site. Now you can buy pictures from here.

Collection of winter paintings by Helen Polishuk

The beginning of the new 2019 year inspired me to write about my paintings about winter.

You will immediately think that I love this topic. I live in Canada, where there is a lot of winter,more than 6 month in year.
And I manage to draw winter. I often received prizes and exhibited my works at exhibitions or published them in publications.
But I will disappoint you, this is one of my directions, but not the most beloved. I am very good drawing the winter.
Now those traditions of drawing, with which I started ,a little outdated.
This is still the traditional East European school, the old Russian traditions

Over the years I began to move away from the primary methods of drawing.
You will be able to see how my equipment has changed on the example of the exposed photos in this post.
I am not an adherent of one theme and one style, one picture.
I always want a new one. It is in my life I am fidget.

Already living in Canada,I created  intresting collection of small paintings devoted to winter.
This is a lively collection filled with originality.
There are many things that show that I live in Canada. These are the buildings of houses and the landscape of nature.
I set up here to draw small pictures.
I will not say that it is special. I liked it.
Many critics say that on the contrary, it is harder to paint small paintings than big ones.
I will argue. It is easy for me to draw small paintings.

That’s just sometimes you have to repeat to remove the layer of paint, shade white.
Therefore, the painting is not created in one month, and sometimes it takes about a year to finish it. This is the process of highlighting more  places in the painting.
Using this painting as an example, I show how applying a bleached layer several times gives a glow to the picture.
It is like nourished with small bright lights.
Very impressive!!!!!

The range of shades is wide, although the winter landscape is monotonous.
This is not true in my collection.

I continue to look to my direction. And the rest of my work only complements what was said
