About the work

Watercolor on 185 gr/m2 Arches paper

The picture is a watercolor application of a forestry with reflections on the puddle. The soft background and the textures in the foreground as well as the light on the foliage against the darkness of the reflections balance each other.

About the artist

I am a self-taught artist, established in the watercolor medium effectively more than a decade.  

My inspiration is mostly the nature and rural life. I like painting panoramic views of popular cities, street scenery, people activities, rural landscapes or a forestry. I believe that any subject can be an authentic artwork. My practice is creating a vision by harmony of shapes, colors and design. Subject matter is for me just a template that helps to remind a memory or feeling of acquaintance on the viewers eyes. I am keen on the visualization process as a kind of language that gathers such elements to tell a story.

Watercolor is a unique medium to work with freedom and authenticity when it is used effectively, which then requires a masterfulness. I believe, my artworks will appear with a certain level of mastery of the technique and with uniqueness of my brushstrokes.
