City streets and rural expanse on warm watercolors by a Croatian artist

“In my works, I try to achieve balance and harmony between each object, color and mood, so that visually all this arouses great interest and emotion in the viewer, making him a little closer to the complex art called painting,” says Joseph Zbukvich (Joseph Zbukvic ) – a brilliant Croatian watercolourist of our time, whose work does not remain without attention in any country. As if by magic, he writes pacifying landscapes in gentle tones, as well as situational scenes from the lives of people.

His impressive achievements and colossal success are due to the fact that he manages to turn everyday life into a visual poetic language, endearing the hearts of both those who appreciate this style and direction, and those who don’t understand anything about it. After all, often in order to understand something, it is enough to feel with your heart and soul, and not to have unlimited knowledge that you can hardly convey all those sensations that a simple person is experiencing, looking at a serene landscape or moving cars to and fro. rainy streets of cities and countries.

Thanks to his unsurpassed talent in drawing and outstanding skills in the field of art, he succeeds in any technique. However, it was his passion for watercolor that led him to become the true guru of this technique. In addition to the intimate rural and sea motives, he writes the most powerful urban scenes with magnificent architecture, dynamics and turbulent life. Ships moor in a quiet harbor, and fishermen in boats swaying thoughtfully on soft waves, cows peacefully chew juicy grass, and multi-colored crowns, rustling leaves falling from trees, announce that it is autumn with rains and umbrellas, dim car lights and raised up collars coat.

In addition to all this, he is the author of a unique book “Mastering the Atmosphere in Watercolors”, where in detail, step by step, talks about how to paint a picture with the help of a “capricious young lady”, who knows exactly how to behave in one way or another. situations. Joseph leads subtle comparative parallels between paint, tea, coffee, milk, and cream. Explaining it with the fact that it is the only way to understand what consistency should be chosen to create a picture. Light and careless with soft, smooth, without pressure strokes or, on the contrary, thick and juicy, with pronounced lines and strokes, slightly sticky and voluminous in appearance, which you so much want to touch with your finger.

Juan Mira remembers this world as simple and kind as he was in his childhood. In his watercolor works, the artist is nostalgic about past times, while not forgetting about the present.
