A lot of elements go into the making of a painting: drawing, composition, graphic design, using colour and values to create contrast and harmony, abstraction, figuration etc.
Every painter favours one of these elements, but far from being neglected the other aspects are also present and treated in accordance with the first.
I would like to invite you to follow my path, the one that characterises my art: paying attention to contrasts and studying the value scale, from black to white through every subtle shade of coloured grey.
There can be no light without shadow; shadows give birth to light and underline the painting’s composition making it more forceful. Vibrant colours slip in between or are superposed over these zones of contrast.
My pedagogical approach employs a gradual step-by-step method with illustrated handouts and plenty of advice and demonstrations of watercolour technique, which are the strengths of my teaching.
