Quote from Olga Litvinenko
“I made my first watercolor sketch, when I was at art school, which was en plein aire.
I still remember that sunny day, in the harbor there were some very grand ships, that impressed me greatly.
So much so, in fact that it turned out to be a very lively sketch.
It was my first watercolour and I remember how I was totally amazed with the process involved”.
With a self-control borne out of experience, Russian artist Olga Litvinenko knows when to forge ahead and when to scale back. Particularly in glowing watercolor cityscapes that express her love of city life.
Make your paintings come alive.
“I try to let my watercolors glow—to live their lives, so to speak,” she says. I want to catch the beautiful moments, convey a warm glow of light, and also create a world on the edge between dream and reality.
Transparency in watercolor.
Finally, maintaining the freshness of transparent watercolor is what is most important to me.
Dalvaro Art gives you this wonderful opportunity to enjoy a week of watercolor painting with Olga Livinenko.
You will have a fantastic art programme of learning while mixing in with the Valencian rural life.
The workshop will include value exploration, composition, color theory and colour mixing in addition to general sketching techniques.
You will be shown how Olga takes photographs as a base for painting in the studio.
You will see how to use Olga’s simple technique of how to create the most successful sketches for painting while using the reference photos to include accurately the main objects of your chosen scene.
There will be no set itinerary for this art workshop.
Each days programme will be decided by Olga and the needs of the participants, the evening before.
We will follow our very open plan of having alternate days working in the studio or the grounds of “Las Orquideas” and going out to paint plein aire to a variety of locations around the “Valle D’Albaida“.
Included in the workshop will be seven nights stay in your own private, en-suite room, with air-conditioning, tea/coffee making fascilities, hairdryers, etc.
All meals, breakfasts, lunches and evening meals.
A minimum of three trips out to some of the fabulous painting locations in the Valencian area.
Plus, of course, painting instruction and demonstrations from Olga Litvinenko
