LET’S PAINT SOME VIBRANT WATERCOLORS TOGETHER!
Hi! I’m Chris and I’ve created this place for those of you who wish to learn how to paint vibrant, full of life, mostly nature-inspired watercolors. My school will help you to hone your watercolor painting skills. I will help you to create paintings that you will be proud of. I like to paint in a realistic style and if you are interested in how to paint like me, join me today! If you would like to take your watercolors to the next level, this is a perfect place for you. In my school you will find many a bit more challenging tutorials which will help you to develop your skills and move forward.
Painting is like meditation. It’s a slow process of putting one brush stroke after another, immersing yourself into the wonderful world of watercolor. I find it very relaxing when I slowly build my paintings with layers, working section by section and trying to find ways to depict my subject in a realistic style. Vibrant colors and transparent properties of watercolor paints allow me to capture the essence of my subjects in a unique way. Working with this medium is challenging, but also very exciting and rewarding.
Inspiration is everywhere. A small bird on a thorn twig, a ray of light illuminating the petals from the back, repeated patterns of batik fabrics or just a beautiful shape of a leaf with a dew drop that will fall off in a moment. Little bits of reality that we pass by indifferently can have great power – they remind us that we are just pollen in this universe. I’d like to stop for a moment, capture those bits and contemplate them for a little longer.
