Usually I paint the three basic colors, but I also like the color of the earth, sienna, umber. I paint alla prima with three brushes in my hand. I don't use masking fluid and painting takes me sometimes only 30 minutes. Very often I paint in the imagination - should sit down, analyze the theme, imagine it when ready. I often do sketches outdoor, not noting the color for none suggestion once in my studio. Why watercolours seem to be light and magic, as others say? It probably depends on people, things and phenomena of everyday troubles : vulgarity, romanticism, melancholy, cynicism, fighting for time to paint, abandoning of big money, tea, from time to time alcohol, coffee, autodyscyplin, tolerance for idiots, soft heart and love for women and their soul and body, conversations with colleague painters, exchanging experiences... Something more about technic? It is small secret of each painter.
