Watercolor Painting With Passion
Fabulous book by Alvaro Castagnet, Watercolor Painting With Passion!
I share art books with one of my art therapy clients. Today Alvaro's paintings captivated us. He is an expressive painter and exhibits a strong, impressive and colorful style with superb interpretation of light effects that capture the soul of places he paints. I like his impressionistic style with realism. His "cityscapes" instills in me a desire to travel.
I found it humorous the foreword of the book quotes Picasso's on painters and painting encapsulates the basic qualities, the prerequisites, for entry into this peculiar pastime of painter - sensitivity, insecurity and insanity.
