What is required to quit tight illustrative coloring which is a trademark of beginners and start painting like a pro? All of this and many other techniques will be the subject of this intensive workshop. Like Vladislav says “nobody wants to buy my cellphone photographs despite the wealth of detail and accurate colors”. You are going to learn how to mix and apply watercolors without fear of being inaccurate. Vlad will show you the shortcuts to the path when every brushstroke applied is significant in its impact on the viewer. He will show you importance of one detail above the other and therefore how to be selective in your painting process. Every painting is like a poetry, the less words wasted the more powerful message it conveys. You will learn how to choose subject matter  and the major steps involved in achieving powerful results.

Starting a painting with color, texture, gestural marks and layers may seem like "chaos", but it delivers vital energy that is both fun and intuitive. Great design and composition are the elements that bring "order" to the rich start and turn your painting into an attention-getting and expressive finish. Applying strong design and compositional skills are the focus. Beginner or advanced, you are encouraged to discover and explore your unique expression and personal imagery in realism, abstraction or non-objective.
