An Artist From Kazakhstan Nazym Rahimberdieva Shares her Secret for a Perfect Painting

A famous artist, Nazym Rahimberdieva, has given some advice for beginners in art and painting enthusiasts on how to make their creative work more expressive.

Nazym Rahimberdieva is a member of the Kazakhstan Union of Artists. Her works have been repeatedly presented at personal and group exhibitions and are now in private collections in Russia, Kazakhstan, France, the USA, Ukraine, and Great Britain.

The artist was born in a creative family: her father is a choreographer, and her mother is a musician. So it is no surprise that their daughter developed creative abilities early. Her parents remember Nazym starting to walk and paint at the same time.

Over time, the hobby became a profession. Nazym studied in a Tansykbaev applied arts college in her native town, Almaty, and then in a university of design in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. Here, she went deeper into learning art and design.

Yet, no matter how great her passion for new knowledge, homesickness continued to grow stronger. When she started listening to herself, the artist decided to put all her feelings on canvas and dedicate her pictures to her motherland.

The theme of many of Nazym Rahimberdieva’s works is the history and culture of her home country. The artist created a series of paintings dedicated to the Kazakh outlook called Tengriism. The artist’s website:

The Secrets of Correct Composition

To create a complete painting, one technique is not enough. It is important to build a layout.

Layout principles are what every artist uses, even if they don’t know it. Applying these principles improves the quality of paintings at once.

Before taking a brush in your hands, you should think about the balance of elements in a painting. Think about where you will place the head in a portrait and how the sky and earth correlate in a landscape. You can help yourself with the last point using a viewfinder. To do this, take a piece of paper or cardboard and make a rectangular hole in it.

Then you can hold the viewfinder up and look through it to find ready layouts. This method is much more effective than just looking for a subject at a glance.

No matter how paradoxical this may seem, at this stage, it is important not to include everything you see in the layout. As a good writer removes unnecessary words from their writing, an artist should remove elements that overload the space.

To do this, you should ask yourself a question: if I don’t include this object in the painting, will there be any change in its content? If not, it would be better to omit the object.

It is also important to define the key component or pattern of your painting. The primary pattern’s purpose is to create a rhythm and imitate movement. Most often, such patterns are present in the form of geometrical figures that simplify and attract the viewer’s interest.

At the same time, each type of pattern has to come from a meaningful place. You can create an effect of silence or relaxation using a horizontal pattern.

A vertical pattern, on the other hand, will bring activity and energy to the painting.
You can create dynamism and animation with a diagonal pattern. S-shaped figures develop an illusion of smoothness and rapid movement in the viewer; a circle delivers rhythm and completeness to the painting; a triangular pattern makes a layout stable.

The next step is the search for a way to develop the painting. It is important to teach not to simply copy a subject or landscape, but to interpret. For example, you can change the layout by changing its format: use a vertical canvas or a square instead of a horizontal canvas.

Color is an important element that helps combine different parts of a picture, transmit the mood, and deliver ideas. A painting looks more complete when colors from one area are used and transmitted into another area. For example, in creating a landscape, you can add the blue color to green leaves or shadow.


There are a lot of papers written on building a strong layout, but there are several general recommendations.

First, you should learn to simplify. There is no need to use more than seven main colors in a painting.

Before creating a full-scale painting, you should make a series of sketches. It should be five small sketches. And when you have chosen the best among them, you can start creating the painting.

Of course, painting and drawing are art, first and foremost. And art allows breaking any rules by expanding the limits of what’s possible. Yet, to break the rules consciously, it is necessary to know them first. Then the result gets more purposeful and impressive.
