Watercolour Tour Date: September 5-14, 2017
Tony Belobrajdic was born in Rijeka, Croatia in 1958. He studied Architecture and Engineering in Croatia, moved to New York in 1987 and since 1989, living and working as Freelance Illustrator in Sydney Australia. As a freelance artist/illustrator, Tony specializes in original “travelling watercolours” created on locations or sometimes started on the site as a rough or even detailed sketch and finished later in the studio. Sketched while sitting in a train, sipping coffee and viewing a scene or hiking through a mountain pass, these watercolours certainly make you feel you are there.
His studio www.perspectiva.com.au has provided architectural perspectives photomontages and concept design services for the last twenty years locally and abroad, covering a wide variety of projects.
Self taught artist specializing in Watercolours but also working in other media. Tony travels and paints overseas regularly and teaches watercolour classes and workshops for beginner to advanced level at several Sydney Art Schools. Watercolour is a painting medium like no other. It’s beauty is linked to an understanding of the medium’s relationship with water – an element that can make it difficult to master. Students will explore factors of the medium to better understand techniques and possibilities. This is a great course for beginners or for those who want to refresh their skills and understandings of watercolour.
“Quick, transparent, expressive watercolours. Learn how to draw and paint with watercolour combining components of nature, animals and the human figure. Improve composition and correct proportions as a fundamental basis to your painting and discover the magic of watercolour painting. Demonstrations of techniques and methods will be shown, including my method of how to paint something, quite complex, quickly and then to simplify the scene and paint what is important. Therefore your paintings are done within one hour and very often in 30 min. All levels welcome.“
