“GOLDEN AGE” OF THE ENGLISH WATERCOLOR SCHOOL.

The works of masters of the Georgian era, who clearly showed the picturesque possibilities of watercolors, honed already known techniques and created many new ones, led to the true flourishing of the English school of watercolors in the XIX century.

Since then, a lot of time has passed, but the artists both painted the portrait and continue to paint. When creating a portrait, the main task of the artist is a true image of the model. This means not only a banal copy of the appearance of the person being portrayed-clothing, hair, jewelry, but also the transfer of his inner world, character. Continue reading
