“DANIEL SMITH watercolors are really special, because they give the artists a great choice. Their vast color palette opens possibilities for innovative and unusual decisions in painting. Experimenting with paints, seeking new color combinations, playing with granulation and interference colors — all of this truly inspires me. And, of course, there is nothing more fascinating, then working with paints, made of natural minerals…” —Julia Barminova
Since 2012 Julia Barminova has worked in watercolor technique, combining the classical school with her own exclusive methods. She travels and conducts master classes in different countries. During trips to the fishing villages and the largest port cities of America, Europe and Russia, Julia has begun her currently most famous series of watercolors – “Islands in the Stream”, dedicated to the play of light and color on the surface of the water and to the structure and configuration of ships, boats and yachts. Julia’s favorite subjects are bicycles, flowers, textured sketches and gothic architecture. She has a popular blog on instagram about impressions, inspiration and watercolor (@juliabarminova).
