The Fluidity of watercolor.
For the longest time I always had my instructors recommend me to try painting to loosen up my technique. (I love to draw in graphite) I have found painting both very dynamic and frustrating at the same time. In my opinion with watercolor, there is a fine line between color saturation and simply TOO MUCH color. I think working with watercolor is the most challenging because it is VERY easily overworked and there is NO going over it (oil/acrylic) or erasing! lol.
I believe it takes a lot of practice to master this technique and Juriu has a portfolio to drool over!

I am in LOVE with Juriu's work because she has mastered using detail without losing the delicate nature of this medium. Of course, what he chooses to paint is exquisite. The stylized girls with their beautiful watery eyes and flowing hair.
Absolutely STUNNING!

"I am an artist in Japan.
I love watercolor, arches rough paper, flowers and the water."

Then again, It doesn't take much to know that I too LOVE flowers and have always been mesmerized by the movement of water.
