There have been great artists in the past that used aquarelle as a serious medium: Dürer, Turner, Kandinsky, Nolde... They were the first Aquarellista's!
Modern Art (I'm told) is only succesful when it is "shocking"... People watch tv all day, and are used to seeing shocking things, in general they go for the quick fix, the kick, and the sensation.
We would propose Aquarelle as a proud answer to that!
Aquarellista! is a movement that promotes the beautiful, fine and subtle art of painting with aquarelle. We' d like every artist that works with aquarelle to join this group - there must be a possibility to become a mature contrast to this decadent trend that art has to be scandalous to "work". Aquarelle can be the medium for serious abstract painting, expressing emotion - strong, maybe quiet, gripping but subtle, spontaneous and always striking.

We'll gradually build up the movement. A website is in the planning and, after careful consideration, we'd like to introduce 3 proposals for a logo:
Let us know which one you like best!! - That one will be worked out into a serious Aquarellista logo...We look forward to your comments...
