Whether you've reached this blog willingly or by force I'm happy to have you here.
ersi marina's workroom is always open to the public, even when I am not in. Sometimes I need to sleep.
And to paint.
And to play with my four cats.
My name is Ersi Marina and I live in Spain though I was born and grew up in Athens, Greece. I kept it all very Mediterranean.
This blog is a means to share my work and snippets of my life, as well as to be in contact with you all. I hope you'll enjoy your visit.

the feeling

I won't try to define it. It comes from deep inside, as feelings do, and has a particular taste, a faint flavour that my mind immediately translates to colour. And the colour suggests a shape, a theme, a composition.

This is my pre-working process, before I sit down and take my watercolours and my pencils, my inks and my papers and start drawing and painting.

So what causes the feeling to surface? It can be anything. The beauty of nature or of the human figure, a peculiar hue of the sunlight, a conversation kept or overheard (not intentionally, I promise), the design on a piece of fabric (I love fabrics) or someone else's artwork.

All these and many more things inspire me and the inspiration comes forward as a feeling and the feeling finally shapes an idea.
