This watercolor painter paints natural subjects with a very great wisdom. It uses all the tricks and techniques that must be known if painting with watercolor.
Even a subject as simple as a tree trunk just being spectacular in the hands of Zoltan Szabo.
Basic techniques used:
- Wet on wet.
- Reservations (to protect whites and lighter elements).
- Glazes and washes of watercolor.
- Dry Brush.
- Scraping & ripped.
- Sponge and other tools.
Zoltan Szabo Portrait
With these techniques, a lot of patience and a lot of art, can reproduce the herbs, water reflections, textures, or the precise forms of a plant. These elements are its beauty, the attractiveness of his watercolors.
He´s traditionally watercolorist, he represents nature realistically and he knows the right color value.
I keep here a few works of his artwork but you can see more on their website:
ZOLTAN SZABO WATERCOLORS
Use dry brush (with direct painting undiluted) and I guess that uses a coarse bristle brush.
Stunning water reflections created in this watercolor.
Spider web made with the technique of scratching. The paper should be of very good quality.
A watercolor lake, one of the best themes for this painting technique.
A work nicely toned, with depth and foreground.
