Watercolor is one of the oldest and arguably greatest techniques of painting. A style that is becoming more and more popular. The upsurge in popularity is most assuredly owed, in no small part, to its versatility and simplicity, which give one an opportunity to experiment with the medium. Not only with materials on which the paint is applied, but also with different styles and themes.
Due to its long history, it’s no wonder that watercolor painting has won a lot of supporters and followers. So many talented people have worked with them or try at least tried using them once. Some to broaden their horizons, others to initially try as a hobby before they chose it as a prime direction.
Today we are showcasing the works of some really talented artists who are truly devoted to this technique. Some of them stick to traditional forms of art and others do experiments, but all in all they achieve fantastic results and create amazing modern watercolor portraits.
