No problem. Very striking images in your gallery. I teach art (tomorrow's class being illustration with wet media) at the University and was wondering if I could show your art to the class. I wouldn't copy it, just use the projector to show what you have on your gallery.
oh, wow, this sounds great! yes, of course, I'd be happy if my works can help/teach something to other. I've learn so much from other artists... Just let me know how it goes, I'm curious! thanks again for the compliments.
Started class with a viewing of your watercolors. Lot's of positive feedback. The students really enjoyed the looseness of your paint as well as the emotional content. A few of them had questions so I thought I'd pass them on to you.
1. How do you control the drips, or is it random? 2. Do you work from photos? 3. What inspired you to use the muted colors? (fantastic by the way) 4. What artists inspired you?
great, I'm so happy to know that your students likec my works, aw. Can you say a "thanks" to them from me? answering to their questions...
1)I try to control the dripp adding less or more water, or blowing with a different "intensity" on the wet spot. It sounds a bit odd and unprofessional, maybe, lol, but it is how it works!XD oh, and often the drips are totally out of control, but I let them go, it's like they already know their "path"! 2) Yes, I almost always use photos as the starting point of my works. I like to re-work things and give a new vision/feeling to them. 3) Oh, the choice of the "palette" comes naturally from a personal taste of mine for more darker, muldy and desaturate tones/colors. I like to paint with few selected colors, mostly to play with contrast. I really like sepia and black and white photography (and movie) too, so it helped. 4) My great inspirations are Schiele and Klimt and I also like the watercolors work of Stina Persson.
