Alvaro makes watercolor looks so easy! I love the way he simply lays the color down with no inhibitions. I love the way he uses the white space for highlights. I love how he uses wet on wet techniques then tops off the painting with dry brush strokes. I love how abstract the shapes are yet the painting overall is perfectly clear. It’s pure joy to watch an artist as talented as Alvaro paint. I could watch him all day.
Hope you enjoy his talent as much as I do! Check out his website for more inspiration.
