Klara Petra Szabo (aquarella)

I worked mainly with watercolour. The feelings I illustrate on the paper very according to my moods and emotional deepness itself. I always try to visualize on my paintings, shows my feelings, my environment, my friends, and my life. My paintings usually small size, complex designs that attempt to reflect my sense of the times we are living in.

In my recent works the technical duality inspired. The painting with the hand transformation in a digital form is aroused my interest. I melded the traditional watercolor technique with a digital diction in my animations.

Thanks for the favs, Klara.
I can´t get enough of yours.
Still I´m afraid of watercolour – it is so delicate in handling. That is what it makes so appealing when it runs the way you hoped for. You are a true master of aquarell.
I looked so often that I tend to belive I know all these people you catched so wonderful.

Your work is amazing!
The way you catch the mood in your portraits is stunning.
You gather each character so lively and precise with your delicious loose watercolor – I would like to steal them all.

You have such convincing new work on your blog!
It would be a great benefit if you find time to post them here too.

Kindest regards,
