And this IS watercolor painting. 100% watercolor. Kthnxbye.



I've been a lot in traditional art society, and just... I spotted this artwork. No, at the first it was a photograph for me. For really long time I wasn't interested to take a look deeper at that common photograph until I got bothered by loads of people to take a peek on it. 

That really knocked me out from chair, is not the fact it's 100% painting but it's watercolor. I've seen 100% photo looking a like acrylics, oils and really mixed medium ways of paintings but... watercolor alone? And that's from simple watercolor "squares" palette. 

I'm not really fan of photo-realistic paintings, I do love real life paintings with very artistic touch and with it's own original style... but for this one I have lots of "wow" for this artist to master watercolor on insane level of skill by using simple techniques. I would give so much to see his original artwork in person!


Another immerse artwork by Stanislaw Zoladz, this one shows a bit more of watercolor washes:

Traditional art is as usually extremely impressive for me. It never stops amazing me, whether it's real life painting or fantasy creatures.

Stanislaw's watercolors are so inspiring!

Those are pretty incredible paintings! I can see in th background where more of the washes come into play, but even those are high-quality watercolor work.

Oh my god. That is incredible! I had to look hard to find evidence of watercolor and could only find the brush strokes in the second painting. Who is this artist? :O

That's pretty amazing. I haven't seen many impressive watercolor works.
Being no traditional artist, I only know watercolors from school where we painted really bad pictures with that technique :D
But I do remember that if you painted over the same spot more than once, holes quickly formed in the paper... so I guess he must have used very sturdy paper... or just waited for a long time between every iteration... or just be the master of watercolor art he is :D

Very impressive.

oh my god ... ahahahahah ... I'm a loss of speech here :lol:

what makes me wonder is: what kind of watercolor paper did he used? if he painted it outdoor, then it must be got dried quite fast, which makes it simply amazing, just by looking at the result ...

Now that is some extreme realism there. I can't imagine how long these paintings took to complete. Some artist classmates of mine paint very realistically, not as realistic as this though. Their paintings sometimes take months to complete.
