During more than 3 hours and 13 videos, with step-by-step explanations, Nono García will make two personal works in watercolor on paper. He will show us the procedure, techniques and little tricks that lead you to the creation of an intimate and personal work. Nono will show us through the theme of still life why he is considered a renovator of that genre and heir to the great universal masters of the Baroque.

In a particular way, we can see:

  • Materials. Paper. Brushes. Rack mounting.
  • The drawing of the figures “without drawing”.
  • Use of watercolor with a limited palette of colors.
  • Application on humid areas.
  • Taking advantage of improvisation.
  • Reflections, transparencies and backgrounds.

    Simplemente maravilloso, estoy disfrutando con el curso, gracias maestro

    Este curso es extraordinario… Muy bien pensado porque comienza nada menos que enseñándonos a pintar el efecto visual del agua contenida en un envase transparente (florero de vidrio). Esto fue lo que más me gustó! ya que, para un principiante como yo, esto puede suponer un desafío súper difícil de lograr. Pero no! Simplemente hay que aprender a ver las formas. En resumen: una joya de curso!

    Hola, me inscribí en el curso de Nono, ya que lo sigo en Facebook y siempre me han encantado sus obras.
    El curso es muy entretenido, didáctico y fácil de seguir. Lo que hice fue solo ver el desarrollo de la primera obra, y luego la hice viendo nuevamente los videos.
    Resultó muy agradable ir pintando junto con el maestro.
    Ahora voy con la segunda obra!
    Me sirve para perder el miedo a la hoja en blanco poco a poco.
    Felicitaciones Nono por un excelente curso y por aclarar todas las dudas que fueron surgiendo.
    Lo recomiendo 100%, vale la pena!

About the artist

Nono García

Nono García

Nono García (Mula, Murcia) 1972. Painter

Nono García is one of the great renovators of the still life genre in Spain. Sincerity emanates from his work, what he feels about the subject, what is appreciated in his works of recent years, where he reaches heights of enormous lyricism.

he studied at the Murcia School of Arts and Crafts. For more than twenty-five years he has dedicated himself exclusively to painting. His work oscillates between two techniques, acrylic and watercolor, always with water as the protagonist.

His good work has led him to practice as a teacher on many occasions. The courses carried out in countries such as Russia, Italy, Lithuania, France, Morocco, as well as various cities of the national geography stand out.

His work is part of important Spanish and European public and private collections, highlighting among other institutions and foundations: Museo della Carta e della Filigrana, Fabriano (Italy); Gabarrón Foundation, New York (USA) or the Montblanc Foundation, Brussels (Belgium).
