My name is Krzysztof Kowalski (Chris) and I am a watercolorist based in Poznań, Poland. Watercolor painting is my great passion and I love to share my experience with others. I've been painting with watercolors since 2012 and in 2018 I started my career as a full time artist.
About my art
I like to paint in a realistic style. I think nature is the source of absolutely amazing shapes, forms and colors and I try to show them in my paintings. I always leave some space for my own interpretations, so my artworks are not photorealistic and always have some personal touch. I am also fascinated by botanical art and illustration. I love details and slow, relaxing process of painting. Five of my botanical works were exhibited on May 2016 during the Museums at Night 2016 event at the Polish Academy of Sciences Library in Gdansk.
I also like watercolor and ink sketches. These are very nice to make and they give me so much joy. I like the combination of thick and thin black lines filled with colors. If you are interested in creating this kind of illustrations with me, feel free to join my Patreon community!
How does Patreon work
Patreon is a place where you can (please, never feel obliged to do this, it's totally voluntary) support my work with the chosen amount of money and in return you will get some rewards.
What can you expect
I am planning to post here videos from my process of painting including real-time videos with no edit so that you can see everything in real time. There will be some technique videos and smaller watercolor tutorials, also many for beginners. We will be painting in different styles (realistic, botanical, loose, watercolor and ink etc.). I think I will divide my videos into three categories and they will be posted in three different places:
- simple tutorials, technique videos, behind scenes videos, real-time videos while I am painting/maybe even live painting sessions (as soon as I understand how to do it :)) will be available only here for my Patrons;
- intermediate tutorials from start to finish will be posted on my YouTube channel for everyone (you, as my Patrons, will be able to see them two weeks earlier);
- intermediate-advanced tutorials, more complex, better organized and much longer will be available to purchase for everyone on my Teachable site.
Your pledge will be charged on the 1st of next month. It renews automatically and is charged every month. You can cancel it anytime.
