I am fascinated but the works of Joseph Zbukvic(like many of you) and Alvaro.

I was wondering...who in this forum has the same technique...and what is their style called? I want to get more info on how they paint. I am aware of their demo videos but simply cannot afford it at this point.

I have seen other artists with similar styles and wondered what it's called.

Thanks!

Joseph Z I think calls his own style a form of impression. I've heard other people call it Tonalism because it insists heavily on tones/value and little on color.

It's your decision if you want to imitate their style ..

You can look on YouTube and find demos, also take a few of their paintings and copy. Try to figure it out. i have a copy of Zbukvics "Mastering Mood and Atmosphere in Watercolor" and it completely changed how I paint.

A member that comes to my mind is Jan Min. You can see his latest work here (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1318033) - if you click on his name at the top and click "Find all started threads" you can see all of his posted work. Or you can follow his link to his wepage. Your thread might do better in the Learning Zone or Palette Talk sections.:wave:

Thank you for both of your replies.

Josh: I assume that from what you said, getting one of his dvd's was well worth it and actually HELPED to improve your style or even change it.

While I like Zbukvic and Castagnet's work very much for it's looseness and spontaniety; I'm not a fan of their dark muddy colors.

I also love their styles.
I've just surfed through the watercolor gallery and read a post by amsterdamadam, in which he refers to one of his demos http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=835992&highlight=stow+wold+demo

It could be interesting for you (but maybe you know that already... just thought I'd add it here to the thread)

If you look at Joseph's early works he was a brilliant colorist, his later pieces are much more tonal. He is a brilliant draughtsman and has a strong sense of design.
