Oil on Canvas
Artist was always fascinated by the beauty and complexity of the jewelry design and craftsmanship behind it. While being an artist, she started discovering and learning more about gemology and the art of working with gemstones. Different cuts and colors with their unique and one-of-a-kind patterns inspired her to try to paint them. The infinite pallet of colors that shines differently from every angle creates endless possibilities of painting a gemstone. Something that looks so simple has over 40 different oil colors that all together result in a mesmerizing stone. By focusing on nuances and particularities of the gemstones, showing colors and flashes of the light, Anastasiya created a painting series portraying the brilliance, reflections, and colors of the gemstones just as realistic as actual ones.
