Many works of Russia’s famous and contemporary watercolor artist Sergey Andriaka are currently on Exhibit in Moscow. Instructors and students from his school of watercolor are also on hand for the public. Our correspondents were there to bring you this report.

Moscow has the opportunity to see new pictures of the famous Russian watercolor painter Sergey Andriaka. The exhibition of his works opened this week. About a thousand pieces are presented here.

The artist is unique for using the classical technique of multilayer watercolor painting which has been abandoned by most in the last century. He achieves the effect of luminescent patterns due to transparency of the watercolors.

[Sergei Andriaka, Painter]:
"This cannot be made with oil painting, it is impossible to achieve such amazing luminosity".

In the 20th century layered watercolor painting was almost forgotten in Russia. Artists began to paint in one or two coats of paint. Sergei Andriaka started to use multi-layered application of color in his works in the 1980's.

[Yelena Smirnova, Exhibition Curator]:
"You can see the multi-layered structure. If you approach the painting closer, you will see how many color transitions and half-tones are superimposed on a part of the paper sheet."

Working with watercolors, unlike oil painting, requires great discipline. It is not possible to change anything later. But the artists see advantages of the technique too.

[Yelena Mironova, Art Teacher]:
"If you compare it to oil, many colors, such as red and orange are more than bright. There are a lot of bright colors. Oil becomes paler over the years. But watercolor preserves better and is more colorful.”

Visitors to the exhibition share the artists’ love of watercolors.

Andriaka's exhibition will run until mid-March and will be accompanied by master classes and painting lessons.
