About WoodAndWatercolour

Sales 1,581
On Etsy since 2015

WoodAndWatercolour is the warmth of wood plus brightness of watercolor.

Hello everybody, I'm happy you visited WoodAndWatercolour shop.
My name is Maria Vlas. I am from Volgograd, Russia.
I started my creative business in the year of 2013 after many years of education and discovering an art form which was the most expressive for me. In the result of this uneasy search I came to decorative painting on wood. I created the style, which is both based on Russian traditional decorative painting, such as painted matreshkas, and is very up-to-date as well, supporting modern trend appreciating folk motives, eco style, things having harmony between form and content.

I use watercolor for painting on wood, because I love the way watercolor and wood interact. Watercolor is transparent and lets wood texture be seen through it, moreover I often leave some parts uncovered with color as a part of ornamentation, so the color and structure of wood is highly significant to me.

So I wish you like my works.
If you have any questions feel free to ask them in etsy conversation.
