Watercolors are a fascinating technique. Full of light, unpredictable and surprising. It seemed to me that aquarists have some instinctive connection with water, which carries the pigments. Hence its name, fr. aquarelle – “watery”, lat. aqua – “water”. The paints diluted with water-based solution create transparent layers. It can be said that water replaces the white dye – its amount affects the brightness of the color. Since the technique is very wet, it requires suitable paper that will not be destroyed or deformed when exposed to moisture. Usually it is a cellulose or cotton paper with a weight of 300 g / m2.

My first steps on my own were quite daunting. Nothing unusual. There is technical knowledge behind the magical process of creating watercolors. Therefore, after many unsuccessful attempts, I decided to take a watercolour workshop. My inner artistic child was delighted with this decision. All the presented works were made during a watercolour workshop at the Lineare school in Warsaw. Interestingly, some of the lessons were conducted online – due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
