I have been informed that I have five pictures in the final of a big Russian nature art competition, called 

 The Golden Turtle

The Golden Turtle is the largest international eco-cultural educational project carried out in Russia. It started off as a wildlife photo competition, but now it includes art as well.

The opening ceremony will held at the 

Museum of Moscow

 www.mosmuseum.ru on the

27th of February

and the exhibition will be on until the 5th of April. After that, the exhibition will go on tour to different cities in Russia. I have unfortunately no details about the places the tour will be held, should I be able to find out more I add this information later. 

So, I have been invited to the opening ceremony on the 27th of February, and yes, I'm going! My visa has just arrived. Too late to chicken out. I will be in Moscow from the 26th of Feb. - 1st of March. 

I am a bit worried, especially as I can neither speak nor read Russian, and I hope the political situation won't spoil a festival which is held for a good cause. I considered this an opportunity which will not come back soon, so I decided to go. Maybe some of you are going to the opening ceremony as well? (I know of a couple of artists friends who were invited too and first said they were going. They encouraged me to join them, but they have since chickened out! ...not naming anyone, but booo!) 

Any suggestions what to see/visit when I'm in Moscow? Of course, there is the obvious: Red Square, The Cathedral of Vasily (Saint Basil's Cathedral), and the Moscow metro. I found as well a museum for calligraphy which I would like to see.

Artist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
I studied graphic design and Illustration in Freiburg/Germany, now I'm based in the United Kingdom where I work as a freelance graphic designer/illustrator and photographer. I have always been inspired by nature itself, as well as fantasy and fiction literature, movies and comics. I illustrate and paint mostly in traditional media; mainly acrylic and pencil, sometimes oil, as well as digital in Photoshop or Illustrator.

I hope you like my artwork, any comments are warmly welcome, please don't be offended if I can't always find the time to answer.

My art has been featured on the beautiful new website of the Indiana Raptor Centre!! I feel very humbled.  I do love birds of prey and they do wonderful work for these amazing birds, so I was delighted when they asked me to spotlight my paintings and drawing!

Lost in Time by Heliocyan
Lost in Time
Psst, sneak peak: working on illustrations for a record cover and artwork for the whole album. And I am allowed to bring as many beetles, birds, skulls, shrubberies and ammonites as I like! Can all jobs be like this please? If you like to support me, prints of this one can be purchased here:
www.etsy.com/listing/222716744…

This still life includes items of my personal natural history collection: a Goliath beetle, an ammonite from the Jurassic Coast which indicates the Fibonacci Golden Section, and the skull of a young herring seagull.

A puppy for Christmas - final artwork by Heliocyan
A puppy for Christmas - final artwork
I finally managed to scan this one which was a Christmas commission. I have cropped it slightly, it had a white border which I found distracting while looking at it on a monitor.
The dog in the painting is about twice the size she really is, she is tiny and super sweet! :) 

Acrylic and oil, gold leaf and cracklé medium on hot press water colour paper.
12" x 16" (30cm x 40cm)

Chihuahua for Christmas by Heliocyan
Chihuahua for Christmas
On my easel the last commission for this year, a Chihuahua. I usually don't do pet portraits, as I think there are other artists who do that much better than I do, but I know the dog and it's owner well so I thought I may make an exception... It will be a Christmas present for his girlfriend.

I only just finished it, the paint is still wet. I will upload a scan as soon as it is dry enough for removing off the stretching board and scanning. 

Acrylic and gold leaf on paper, 12" x 16" (30cm x 40cm)

I LOVE all your art. Your style is traditional, but unique, and I can't get over the delicate precision of your lines and the stunning use of metallics and warm light! So beautiful!

I hope you don't mind, but there was a thread in the Thumbshare Forum for tiger pictures and I immediately thought of your paintings :) I've shared three of them in the thread :)

Heute kamen endlich die Grußkarten aus deinem Society6 shop an! :la:
Sie sind leider einen ticken grünstichig und das Hintergrundmuster (Motiv "Halloween" übrigens) kommt nicht so schön raus wie auf dem Bildschirm.
Aber sie sind trotzdem wunderschön, sind groß und stabil. Und das Motiv, aaah :heart:
Zwei verschick ich zu Weihnachten an besondere Menschen und eine behalte ich selbst :)

Oh, das tut mir sehr Leid, dass sie nicht so schön rauskommen wie auf dem Bildschirm. :( Das ist einer der Gründe warum ich lieber meine eigenen Drucke auf ETSY verkaufe, so kann ich sicherstellen, dass der Druck auch so aussieht, wie das Original. Die guten Leute auf Society6 haben das Original ja nie gesehen, das muss sehr schwer sein, das dann so hinzukriegen. Allerdings ist mein Papier bestimmt nicht so schön und stabil wie das von Society6. Freut mich aber, dass sie Dir trotzdem gefallen! :hug: :heart:

Ja, das stimmt...ich weiß auch, wie schwer das sein muss, die Farben exakt hinzubekommen.

Sie sind wirklich ein echter Hingucker :)
