"The painter must know at first that the true is hidden in subtlety."

(Su Tungpcho)

As part of the Watercolor painting course, we will learn about watercolor painting techniques, showcase the possibilities that this kind of painting offers, how to prepare the paper before painting, and how to adjust the resulting painting. A watercolor is often referred to as the "most difficult" painting technique, as it does not offer much space for repairs, such as oil painting, but with us you can beautifully handle the watercolor painting and you do not have to be worry about it. Painting course is held in the creative atmosphere of the art studio, on warmer days we will go to paint into the Riegrovy sady, where we study space and colorfulness of the landscape.

Why to paint with a watercolor technique? Perhaps because of its charm lies between freshness and painter's strength, translucency alone painting, ease of administration, rate, capturing changes caused by atmospheric effects or architectural elements of fragility, purity of expression or brilliant colors that used in art history primarily Expressionists.
 
Learn to take a watercolor with you on a trip! For this painting you do not need a lot of equipment. So one of the nice properties of watercolor is that you can carry it with you anywhere. Take a watercolor in the backpack in nature, paint at home on your desk or anywhere directly on the knee.
