"It is fascinating when a small amount of watercolours with different saturation and shade become something significant on a white sheet of paper..."
Having experienced a watercolour technique on a “simple-to-complex” basis and having painted the sea under the guidance of Julia Barminova you will look at the marine watercolours with a precise understanding of HOW it was done.
The wash of waves and hundreds of subjects to paint: textured fishing boats and stunning yachts, flashes of light and seagulls.
