    El curso del maestro Cesc Farré ha sido genial, extraordinario. Su trato amable y cercano y sus explicaciones, demuestran que es profesor, que está habituado a explicar y que tiene una gran confianza en sí mismo, …más que justificada, claro.
    Trasmite confianza y hace que creamos que es posible hacer lo que él hace, …y que nosotros intentaremos algo a nuestro nivel.
    En lenguaje coloquial, el maestro Farré es un crack.


    Muy recomendable. Me ha gustado!

About the artist

Cesc Farré

Cesc Farré

Terrassa 1972, Barcelona, Spain

Architect by the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC, Spain). His artistic training, especially the watercolor technique, has been closely related to the graphic expression and illustration of architectural heritage.

Currently, he combines teaching watercolor at school with master classes and workshops around the world with research.

He is part of the group of watercolors of Catalonia, SDWS and is an international art jury.

It is considered Mediterranean. This fact is naturally reflected in the light and color of his watercolors, but also in the contrast and structured gesture with the drawing and composition. He uses the white of the sheet a lot in his proposals and usually mixes colors directly on the paper to give maximum transparency and brightness. Works with natural hair brushes on fine-grained cotton paper with high-quality pigments.

Its methodology is based on a specific study of what it represents, sketches "in situ" and outdoors and an additional study based on all the material. He is passionate about nature, so he can define me as a landscaper, a subject in which he has specialized for a few years.

He is especially inspired by water and its states, especially in the seascape.
