MEET THE ARTISTS:

Susy Soulies: Passionate about colour, she demonstrates that it is possible to show freedom in watercolour while relying on a well-constructed and detailed drawing.

Viktoria Prischedko: The artist reveals her vision of watercolour in which emotions meet colours.
Revelation: Jean-Louis Aparicio. This former globe-trotter has been painting in watercolour for ten years and loves portraits.
Anne McCartney: She paints multiple layers of colour, applying masking fluid between each layer to obtain saturated colours in paintings that showcase the depth of her sensibility.
Peter Jablokow: An architect by training, he likes the foundations that a solid drawing gives him. It allows him to let go and play with the characteristics of watercolour.
Liu Yi: The paintings of this Chinese master are marked by a form of serenity and respect for his subject that only come with an exact and precise knowledge of the technique of watercolour.

Can talent be passed on? Contrary to knowledge or a certain form of intelligence that can be passed on through education or background, talent seems to be a quality that doesn’t necessarily get passed down from generation to generation. It’s true that in literature and music, children often follow in their parents’ footsteps, but it’s not so easy to find examples in painting. One explanation is perhaps that, more than certain other means of expressing one’s creativity, painting requires a level of technical mastery and know-how, in short knowing ‘how’ to do what you ‘want’ to do. In this issue, Susy Soulies shares her technical secrets without a moment’s hesitation in an eight-page article with a step-by-step demonstration. Benefit from her experience and get tips on drawing, composition and mixing colours. Follow each clear and precise step as she creates a masterpiece that we hope will inspire your own paintings in the future.
