Nicolás López: Watercolour workshop in Costa Brava, Spain, 24 – 30 June 2020
Nicolás López, born in Peru 35 years ago, is one of those painters you only meet once in a while and doesn’t leave you indifferent. He paints as if his life depended of it, as if there was no tomorrow. Actually this is his oxygen to breath and express what he has inside. Nicolas takes you by the hand along the path of the water, in permanent dialogue with him. Nicolas is a painter who breaks most rules, without aiming to do so. His free spirit obeys the laws of nature and ultimately to the water, which is the real main character. Instead of trying to control or manipulate it.
“It’s fundamental to know the technique, the materials, the paper, but essentially the water. How it behaves and its character. After exploring several techniques, I had this special connection with watercolor because I can feel a poetical spirit with what water represents to me. I believe that I will never cease to be questioned by it”
We will be based right in the middle of Cape of Creus natural park, in the heart of the Costa Brava. The indomitable geology of Cape of Creus will help us in our quest for our deepest corners of creative art. Our hotel is right by the sea in Roses Bay with a studio overlooking the garden and the pool. For Nicolás WATER IS THE MASTER, so nothing can is better than to paint by the water. We will become waterourselves in a way, going through all its possibilities. We are 75% of water so researching the water is also exploring our inner self. But also we’re made of matter. So Nicolás has generously agreed to share with us, for the very first time, his own research about matter applied to watercolours. He will guide us in his new approach to exploring the material part in us, the force of matter in a permanent dialogue with the water. At our disposal all the sand of the beach, ready to help us in our creative pursuit. To round it up, we will paint plein air in magical Cadaqués all day. So an appointment that you can’t miss!
