Michal Jasiewicz

    

Quote from Michal Jasiewicz: “It’s difficult to define my technique. It keeps changing, depending on the motif, momentary mood, accident. I constantly try to look for new ways and experiment. It must be fun! Painting brings me joy, which hates boredom and working within the framework of the skills I have learned. Watercolour as a technique is a bit unpredictable; you need to give it autonomy and let it do half of the work for us. You can’t try to control each detail, as it kills the greatest merit of watercolour – spontaneity and freshness.”

The objective of this workshop, at Dalvaro Art, is to learn how to interpret and synthesize townscapes and natural landscapes, both out on location and within the studio environment, directly with watercolour. While learning a variety of techniques and different forms of working. Due to small student numbers the teaching will be personalized so that no matter what the level of each student is, although not suitable for absolute beginners, Michal will quietly and patiently guide everyone through the course each day, allowing for one on one tuition as necessary.
