Admit it, you can look at the water’s reflection endlessly! Only water gives a sense of constant movement in the static and living awe of nature.

Pablo Ruben Lopez Sanz shares his watercolor approach -
“Firstly, I look for a captivating landscape. I travel a lot and I try to draw in unusual places. Then I make hundreds of sketches. I search for the right angle and always think about the composition. Afterwards, I sit down in the studio and finalize my drawing with all the details.”
