Red Roofs Prague - 3
About this artwork
Part of artist Yelena Sidorova's Street View series. This piece features predominantly vibrant red roofings covering most of the city's structures. Prague is my favorite town to paint, says Yelena. She captures the wondrous scene with whimsical curving lines and captivating colors. Gradient trees fill the spaces between the buildings while intricate cobblestone pathways line the streets. Yelena utilizes dyes and paints on silk. When applied, liquid dyes and paints quickly flow across the surface achieving a blending effect. The painted silk looks beautiful after steaming, the colors become brighter and more intense, and the full sheen of the silk is restored.
