As the first art book published by The Juice Bar, “Painting Emotions” was going to be decisive for our journey. We’ll let you decide if we succeeded or not 🙂 What we can say for sure is that, guided by our passion for art, we worked very hard and put our heart and soul in this quite unique selection of interviews.
We managed to bring together 9 of the most talented artists along with their life stories and art work portfolios.
The ARTventure awaits you!
Therefore the real question is how not to read this book, especially if you are a beginner artist. For this is more than just a book, it is a collection of stories and life experiences with ups and downs … like everyone’s life. With every word read and every page turned, you will get a feeling of warmth, like that moment when you are sitting down having a chat with a really good friend over a nice cup of tea.
A little tip from us: take time to relax, find the right spot, maybe have some coffee or juice or whatever works for you and get ready to dive in the minds and lives of some of the best artists. Immerse yourself in their journey as artists and human beings, enjoy their amazing artworks and also discover what drove them towards watercolor painting.
Now you’re probably wondering: “Why watercolor? What makes it so special that we published a book about it?”
Fun fact about watercolor: it is supposed to date back to the paleolithic age so that makes it one of the oldest painting methods in the world. While reading the book, you will see that there is one word frequently used by our artists to describe this technique and that is “fluidity”. And there is probably not a more suitable word to describe it.
Every chapter read will take you deeper into a world with no boundaries. A perfect balance between control and freedom. Imagine your paintbrush dancing, curving to every move you make, waving to every thought that spring into your mind. An interesting fact is that most of our artists are architects, so if you like predictable outcomes keep an open mind.
So why read “Painting Emotions?” Well, because you will become acquainted with 9 life-changing experiences, for every chapter is a story itself. Needless to say that you get to see the beauty in the best watercolor paintings of our artists. It is just like sitting in an art gallery while they tell you their life stories.
It is a personal book, a book with and about life, soul, vibration, sincerity and passion. This is the exact way our artists choose to speak. From their heart, sharing their emotions.
Hope you will enjoy it as much as we did! Happy reading! 🙂
