Suluboya Portre Dersi

Being afraid to make mistakes so not even trying ?

Overworking a painting ?

Making an illusion too complicated - not all details are necessary ?

Lack of inspiration ?

Not knowing where to start with a reference photo ?

Trying to over control their watercolors ?

You strive to develop your artistic voice ?




This watercolor workshop aims to bring students closer to watercolor both technically and emotionally and encourages them to reveal their inner creative powers.

​ ​

It on creating realistic paintings with basic techniques, principles and aesthetics of figure and portrait in the fluid, transparent and luminous world of watercolor, it is aimed to enter the fascinating world of the water element, which is as destructive as its naivety.

​ ​

Participants will learn basic concepts that push the boundaries of realism and range from the importance of manipulating the viewer's perception to using the selection, style and technique of reference images that are more than the sum of the parts of the final painting. Participants will also explore the relationship between realism and abstraction and learn the importance of both in creating interesting and engaging paintings.

​ ​


Starting from the basics (material information, wet on wet, wet on dry, etc.), theoretical and practical information will given during the workshop, Ahsen Küçükçalik will make the same painting with the group and help the participants to create the finished works of art by  applying what they watch. In order to speed up the process, the artist will draw and bring the figure to be worked on. Participants who want to draw and bring their own papers, the reference photo will be sent via e-mail in advance. A meditation practice will be performed in the process to help participants connect and focus on their inner mastery.

​ ​

Participants are encouraged to pose questions and bring sketches, finished works, and their own materials for individual criticism and evaluation.
