-The Watercolor technique:

Watercolor is perhaps the pictorial technique that more easily approaches art, as it allows a more natural approach. It is in fact one of the most complex and sophisticated techniques in the pictorial field. However it remains particularly pleasing to those who approach the painting for the first time because it allows to approach the colors with calmness and in a versatile way. Liberating and satisfying, watercolor has in the mystery of water everything that makes it fascinating. The water, seems little but and so much: that of the colors to the water, of the chine to the line, is a vast and surprising world. With watercolor you can discover that you can paint with many colors but also almost with nothing, and that even the white paper is already color or, if you want, already watercolor.
Watercolor Painting Techniques
To make good watercolors are essential colors of great quality, excellent brushes of different sizes and a paper of high quality. Watercolor colors are translucent and transparent. Before you paint it is good rule to wet the paper to make sure that the color is better absorbed. Some authors have a personal way of using glia watercolors. William Turner poured the color on parts of the surface and then brushed or tilted the sheet to randomly mix the colors. Other artists scatter of salt or alcohol the surface painted and not yet dried to obtain a nuanced effect, almost and imperfect abstract.

Machining process:
On average, I need 2/3 months to make a picture. Sometimes I need even more time. Work simultaneously at 4/5 works. My artistic process is based on the study of the pictorial techniques of the Italian Renaissance. But I have also long studied the authors contemporary masters of expressionist and abstract art.
I like to take care of details and detail and use high quality materials.
The paintings almost always live their lives inside a house. I think my paintings have the ability to adapt to houses with classic, minimalist, modern and design interiors.
