Before beginning to paint a new miniature he carefully studies all materials that will help him to express a chosen theme entirely. Considers his work to be finished when he likes a miniature and it is approved by the Artistic Council.

Painting of Golikov I.I. and his relatives Myznikov G.M (B.I. Kamardinís uncle) and Malakhov N.V. (B.I. Kamardinís father-in-law) had a great influence on the artistís creative work.
