Cesc Farré is a “Mediterranean” graphic artist and architect specialized in the technique of watercolor. The sea and the water, the light and the color, are part of the way that he conceives the plastic expression. Through two works made by himself, step by step, Farré will explain the fundamentals of this pictorial procedure where the seascape takes on a life of its own through the play of transparencies and prints, of light and colors.

During more than 3 and a half hours of teachings by Cesc Farré we can learn:

  • Give importance to the value of humidity.
  • Treatment of foam and waves
  • Reflections and refractions of light.
  • Shadows and their incidents.
  • Tones of sand, rocks and surfaces.
  • The right color temperatures.

Purpose of the courses

During this course, you will learn how to make your own work using watercolor techniques. Cesc Farré will carry out two works to explain different procedures of this technique. These processes will be carried out from start to finish. During more than 3 hours of the course, you will be able to contemplate two demonstrations of Farré, as well as an explanation and breakdown of his entire process in simple steps that will allow you to apply these procedures after your own work.

Once the entire process is finished, you will be able to bring a greater wealth of attitude to your work.

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.

    Un curso excelente, súper detallado y bien explicado. Muchísimas gracias por compartir tu arte con nosotros y dejar un material que vale oro. Estoy practicando mucho todo lo aprendido en el curso y es súper divertido.


    Este curso me ha parecido un sueño, es estar viendo como trabaja un gran acuarelista como es Cesc Farré, que me encanta!, muy bien explicado, dando la sensación de que es fácil cuando detrás hay mucho trabajo y mucho estudio. Intentaré poner en práctica todas las recomendaciones. Un saludo

    Este curso es claramente el resumen de muchos años de observación, análisis y práctica.
    Ver trabajar a una acuarelista es difícil de por sí. Ver trabajar a un buen acuarelista y que encima vaya comentando lo que hace, cómo y porqué, compartiendo sus conclusiones de años de práctica y los trucos para plasmar la realidad de una forma tan suelta… Eso es un regalo.
    Creo que este curso será como uno de esos libros que uno relee varias veces, sacando cada una una distinta lectura. Solo queda posarlo y ponerlo en práctica.
    Gracias Cesc.
