Watercolors by Grzegorz Wróbel

Under - Art, Illustration, Inspiration

This is awe-inspiring watercolor artwork by Grzegorz Wróbel. An architect by profession, Grzegorz Wróbel was born in 1983 and started painting with watercolors at the age of 12.

During my studies at the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland, I learnt a lot about watercolors. Although the faculty of Architecture at this university has a strong tradition in drawings and watercolors, but most of my skills are gained from my own study and personal interest in this medium, and from friends who also work with watercolors.

In summer time I usually draw from life. I think this is the best way to learn something new and to achieve better skills. But in winter, it is hard to go outside and paint as water freezes : ) so, I paint from photos that I have made earlier.

The most difficult thing when working with watercolors is to control water! You just cannot control it 100%. I use a lot of water and I think it is the greatest thing to observe how it flows on your paper and creates magical things.

    Si la técnica de la acuarela no fuera de por sí maravillosa, el talento hace que se vea aún mejor.

    Excelente trabajo!

    I don’t normally go in for watercolors. To me, they often come off as pale or pastel-like (the colors not the medium) and I prefer the richness of acrylic and oil. But these are exceptional. Full of light and, I don’t know, movement? I’m not educated enough to have the right terminology. Really lovely.


    January 31, 2011 at 5:59 am

    These watercolor paintings are impressive and creative! Kudos to the artist!

    My eyes were pleased as they bounced from warm color to warm color in the coldness of the snow pictures. They balance of line and shape were satisfying, even comforting. Outstanding paintings!

    Awesome, beautiful paintings. The one of the silver birches is so like a photograph I found on the ‘net. Both are extremely touching.

    Both of my grandparents are from Poland. In fact, my grandmother lived through part of WWII and even lost the majority of her hearing due to the bombing by the Germans. It would bring tears to her eyes if I could purchase a print and send it to her. If that is at all possible, please email me.

    These made my heart beat faster. I could spend hours staring at these paintings. Beautiful! Awesome! Magnificent! I would compare this artist’s control of the medium with William Blake. So fresh and alive, you could step right into the painting.

    I love watercolours because they reflect the true nature of reality, namely, that nothing is solid and permanent. Thanks so much for bring these pictures to us.

    These are very lovely and wonderfully done. I love that you find beauty in all architecture – old and new – and can find ‘architecture’ in all that is around you. The details you creatively added further enhanced each watercolor for me…I took the time to really view each one to look for the little details and to feel the emotion of the complete picture.
    Thank you for sharing. You have a beautiful gift and I also wish you the very best with your architecture.

    I am curious what paper he is using for his work and if that or a technique helped with those lovely trees in the painting closer to the top here…where the trees almost feel crystalized. I am very curious about that piece and how it was achieved. His work is wonderful and I enjoyed seeing it all!

    Ja, dass sind aufgrund der sehr schönen Farbkombinationen schon sehr stimmungsvolle Bilder – und die höhe Präzision ist für ein Aquarell ungewöhnlich – es wäre zu schön, wenn man dem Maler mal bei der Arbeit zusehen könnte – oder sogar einen Kursus bei ihm belegen könnte.

    Beautful work! I was completely blown away by these images! So clear, and yet so soft. You are a master of watercolour technique, but there is so much more in your pictures. There’s hope, and light and so much more. Thank you!

    These are beautiful! Using more water makes a big difference! Do you usually sketch anything out in pencil first before beginning with paint?

    I have been in love with Grzegorz’s art for months. I was studying Alvaro Castagnet art for years before I came across Grzegorz’s art. Their art is quite similar. Alvaro gets over $700 for his used art books and charges thousands for his classes because of his extreme talent similar to yours.
    I mention this because I’m sure Grzegorz could do the same because his talent is just as good if not better.
    Thank you for what you’ve added to my life..

    Mr. Wrobel, I went through your all the drawings, they are amazing. I am wondered that how much patience & accurate view, you have. Its incredible. I salute. Though, I also use to draw with watercolors but they are still far from my own scale, forget about your’s.

    All the very best for your future.
    Best wishes.

    Hermosas acuarelas de una persona que SÍ sabe manejar los colores, los claroscuros y la perspectiva; todo esto conjuntado se convierte en una maravillosa imagen, ni siquiera la fotografía de la misma escena me cautivaría tanto como estas imágenes.
