The Dream – The Courage to follow your dreams
Butterflies and Galaxies Painting in Acrylics on Paper
I wanted to paint my dream in acrylics on paper, and this is how this painting was created. The artwork is not about a night dream, but about goals, plans, and dreams you build in your life. This is a painting I began last year, but couldn’t get myself to finish it. I felt like the elements, in that time stage, didn’t fit together too good.
This weekend, I decided to finally finish it, and also, make some important changes. The hair of the girl was fire red, but I wanted something more poetic so I worked on some braids. I really like how the hair comes out. I worked with a very good and small brush for details – Nr 1, Milan. I never knew the powers of such a small brush until now. Now it’s in my top 3 brushes.
The subject of the painting
This painting is about following your dreams, no matter how far they are, and the courage to touch them. No matter how hard a dream might seem, if you’re willing to give your all, you will, for sure, touch it. I worked with acrylics on paper for this painting because it gives me the pleasure of smooth lines and a better flow of the brush.
I am happy I retook the work on this painting because it opened my mind in different directions. I decided to put more effort into painting details and make the painting appear more alive and more real. But I still like to keep that brushy feeling of a painting and not turn it into a real photography. It’s beautiful to paint realism, but I strive my paintings to reach a certain taste of the parallel universe. I want my paintings to appear real, but also mystic.
I’ve always been full of passion for astrology and the study of stars. Meteor showers amaze me every year and I find myself admire the show, even in the coldest winter. I also use a telescope for amateurs to admire the moon. The view at my window allows me to see only 20% percent of the night sky, but soon I will move somewhere really nice and I will be able to watch the sky all the time.
