Watercolor 9 is fantastic, wonderful transparency, light ,color harmony, looking at it one can feel the delicacy of the blossoms on a warm sunny day in spring.

Christa Friedl 

This painting evokes a real sense of Spring. The artist shows real skill and sensitivity in portraying the sunlit white petals against the muted background. This painting has depth and texture which is very pleasing, whilst being impressively executed.

Jenny Matthews

The simplicity of the composition is wonderful. One of the most difficult things to learn in watercolor is to know when to stop. Here the artist shows us how a work, if it is well executed does not need to be full of information to communicate great things. Congratulations!

Silvia Monge

The striking composition of the black cat on the pure white background is arresting, together with the clear colur of the cat’s eyes. The painting demonstrates the artist’s drawing skills underpinning an accomplished use of watercolour.

Jenny Matthews

It's spring,baby

116

I can see the full potential of a watercolor artist in this painting. Very good selection of subject, which includes landscape, figurative, animal and all kinds of elements. Very skill full drawing, harmonious palette and the best part of it is impressive warm lighting against cool colors, which is lifting the focal point very well.

Vikrant Shitole

Storytelling picture: I liked 116 best. The skills are very good, and the motive cute, but not overwhelmingly cute .

Mai-Britt Schultz

A great mastery in the technique but also achieves a complicity between the child and the dog that makes us want to return to childhood to enjoy moments like this one. All of these make this watercolor remain in my memory.

Silvia Monge

The red apple-like face and the sun-drenched snow matches so well. Color gives people warmness in winter.

For me two best paintings are 95 and 96 from the same artist. There are several stories behind what the viewer can implement, great tonal rhythm and values, perfect design and good use of watercolor, soft and hard edges. Two great watercolor works, congratulations to the artist.

Christa Friedl

It is difficult to convey emotions in the grisaille technique and it is even more difficult to convey children's emotions. I was struck by how much the work conveys the tirelessness and willpower of this girl. Her desire to succeed at all costs. / Сложно передать эмоции в технике гризайль и еще сложнее передать детские эмоции. Меня поразило на сколько работа передает неутомимость и силу воли этой девочки. Ее желание во что бы то ни стало добиться успеха.

Hyperrealism requires a great handling over drawing, watercolor technique and observation. These works not only fulfill all this but also transport us to a wonderful “Spring Festival” full of light “Autumn silently lies down” handles a very interesting composition with all the transparencies that light causes on that leaf. From an everyday place that might not be important for most people, the artist finds the beauty in it with thousands of things that amaze when we stop to observe the work. With the cherries the artist again achieves a work with many points of interest from a daily scene. With transparencies, light and colors. I would love to eat those cherries. Congratulations!

Silvia Monge

The plastic bag is very realistic.  It goes well with cherry’s colors.
