Alena Svobodová  

Who I am

          My name is Alena Svobodová and I have been painting since I was a child. Even as a small child, I enjoyed watching my grandfather paint pictures and that led me to oil painting as well. Painting is relaxation for me. I choose subjects that appeal to me with their atmosphere. I often collect them on my travels in England, Scotland, France and Italy. I paint mainly for myself, for my pleasure, but also for people who like my paintings. I try to put in the pictures the positive energy that I feel during their creation. That's why I'm always happy to hear feedback from people who have my paintings and are happy with them. I work with the technique of oil painting  on board, rarely favouring canvas as a  a medium of choice and I also liked the watercolour technique.
