Sunday Matinée

Please meet Dalibor Popovic Miksa this week. The young artist from Zagreb, who now lives in Belgrade, is a master of watercolour. His cityscapes are exceptional, I think. Keeping in mind, that watercolour does not allow for any mistakes. The image has to be ready in your mind and you have to get it right the first time.

I really like the way he is able to show light in his paintings. One can almost feel the sun and warmth. It is said, that Dalibor Popovic also is a musician, singing, playing guitar and saxophone.

    1. Because the are translucent. you can’t put one coat over another, if you got something wrong. What’s white on a watercolour picture, is actually the paper with no colour. With oil or acrylic, you can put a highlight on top of a – say – dark background, you can’t do that with watercolour. Sometimes, even if you are too slow with a brushstroke, the edges dry and get a little darker than the rest. The only thing that works by way of correcting might be a darker shade going on top of a lighter shade. But even then, because the colour is applied with water, all layers tend to intermingle and flow into each other, both changing hues.
