Originally from Moscow, Russia, I am an artist living and working in Houston, TX. I was trained as an architect, but decided to do art full time in 2014 when I founded my company Tummy Rubb Studio. My art can be found in several healthcare facilities around the country and in public and private collections in Texas and Louisiana. I teach online and live classes on figure sketching, drawing, painting and digital art - sign up at tummyrubb.com/classes!

As my goal this fall is to improve my landscape painting skills I decided to start with improving my greens. I found extremely valuable advice on greens (and on color mixing in general) in Jeanne Dobie's book Making Color Sing. She suggests not mixing greens from yellows and blues - that's what I've been doing along with using various green pigments but adding a warm compliment to your greens. I painted a bunch of swatches and did get some natural looking varied greens that I've never tried…

Warming up your muscles is just as important before painting as it is before any physical activity. In the new video on Tummy Rubb Studio's YouTube channel I practice with some gesture drawings of ballet dancers. I go from pencil which is easier to control to Chinese brush and ink that require a lot more precision. This video is recorded in real speed so it also works as a safe alternative to sleeping pills - watch it before bedtime and enjoy a night of art dreams! . . . . #tummyrubbstudio…

Got my reference photos lined up but having a really hard time finding motivation to paint. Maybe because it suddenly feels like winter here in Houston. How to you motivate yourself for creative tasks? Coffee? Music? A walk in the park? . . . #watercolorpractice #watercolorart #watercolor_zone #watercolor_best #watercolor_daily #referencephotos #watercolorpainting #watercolor_painting #watercolor_guide #watercolorart #watercolor_planet #watercolorartist #referencephotos #referencephoto…

Taught Sketching Faces class this morning for Skilpe.com but otherwise not a productive day... Feel bad now as there is no progress on the art to do list.

Today I'm packing for a weekend art trip to Corpus Christi TX. It's a fine balance between having a variety of tools for various subjects I might be capturing and not packing up the whole studio. Here is what I'm taking: Sketchbook Cold press watercolor paper with a foam core board pins masking tape (I like w/c blocks but used up all the ones I had) Watercolor brushes My regular set of watercolors (I bought a little box with pans but it's hard for me to switch to using them) White artist…

A little about my art journey... I was born in the Soviet Union and was drawing since I could hold a pencil. I decided to go to the architectural college picturing myself behind a drawing board adding sweeps of beautiful colors to a facade or an urban panorama. In college painting and drawing classes were mandatory and I thought this was my chance to shine. But my drawing and painting professors were disappointed with my work because I had very little formal training in drawing and none in…

I had a lot of work this week so I thought I'd have a quiet Sunday and go through my art books. Here is a list of my absolute favorites that I just had to share with you. Have you read any of these?
