I am grateful to everyone who took part in the competition. 

My congratulations to all participants, finalists, and, of course, the winners!

Nocturne, or night landscape, is one of the most difficult challenges for a watercolor artist. And the most interesting one, too. In this course, we will go to Rome at night, and we will analyze the strategy and plan for building a night landscape step by step. Of course, you can apply the same rules to any nocturne... But the main thing is to make your watercolor not as a rigid and regimented project, but as a light jazz improvisation.

I am proud to present our jury:
