Ekaterina Sava

    

Ekaterina Sava (Ziuzina) was born in Novorgudok, Belarus. Today Ekaterina is a renowned watercolourist within the art world. She uses her great skill of subtlety and representation within all her many diverse subjects. Particularly in her detailed paintings of animals, which always show a great sense of passion and understanding. One of her great strengths lies in the capacity she has of creating an amazing transparency in her still life and life paintings.

Ekaterina Sava graduated from the Belarusian National Technical University in 2012, majoring in architecture. She is currently head of the Watercolour Society of Belarus. Since 2012 Ekaterina Ziuzina has successfully exhibited in major watercolour exhibitions around the world, including Turkey, China, France, Thailand, Italy, Mexico, The USA, India and Europe.

On this workshop you will be shown, not only the basics as a refresher but will quickly move on to some more advanced concepts of painting still life, animals and landscapes in watercolor. This well organised course is well planned to suit the whole group and with Ekaterinas personal involvement each individual will have all new concepts as well as every step further explained. Her enthusiasm, humour, patience and dedication will encourage everyone to "enjoy the ride" with fun and laughter. Ekaterina's courses are usually studio based, venturing out on location for some plein aire painting with additional sketching and photographing in preparation for the more detailed work in the studio. See the itinerary for this week below. 


Some knowledge of watercolour painting is advisable but Ekaterina is very sensitive to the individuality of all her students and she will adapt her focus to your own level, aspirations and learning ability.
