Artist Irina Pronina paints light-filled watercolor still lifes and landscapes of the Russian countryside. She was born and raised in Moscow, and began studying art at a young age. Following her passion for painting, she attended the prestigious Higher School of Folk Arts in St. Petersburg, where she trained to be a master silk painter. After graduating, she spent several years creating artworks on silk, however, she found that the traditional technique did not further her search for her own style. Inspired by a group of modern Russian watercolorists, Irina discovered her enthusiasm for the flowing medium. "The possibilities of watercolor – the dynamism and beauty of the iridescence – constantly inspire new paintings," says Irina. Today, she paints full-time from a home studio located on her terrace, with large windows and lots of natural light. In her free time, she enjoys needlework, which she describes as a matter for the soul.
Absolutely a beautiful watercolor. Lilacs are my favorite flower, and the colors in this painting are exquisite. I didn’t know where to hang it, I just knew that I was filled with joy every time I looked at it on line. Thank you Irina for your gorgeous work!
Dear friends, I am pleased to announce that my watercolor painting will participate in the Watercolor International Exhibition from 20 to 30 May 2021 in the Pyrenees (France). I am very happy to participate in this event. Currently, the Covid 19 situation in France is still serious and the country is in quarantine. For that reason, organizers have decided not to open the show to the public but arrange to promote on social media. Unfortunately, no physical visit accepted. All paintings will be framed and hung at the studio from May 15 to 30 for 3 sessions. The images will be publicized on social media (website www.aquarellepyreneene.com, facebook https://www.facebook.com/art.pyreneen, insta…). Anyway, it is a great honor for me to be one of the representatives of Russia at this large-scale event.
