Dan Nastasie

I am fascinated by the spontaneity, the freshness and the challenges of watercolour. I feel happy when I paint waiting with anxiety for the pigments to dry to see how close is the image I produce on paper by the one in my mind. So far, I had eight solo exhibitions in watercolour.

I am teaching watercolour classes at Clipboard Arts Supplies Shop and the Campbelltown Arthouse sharing the joy of various watercolour techniques. 

Some of the awards I won over time include Popularity Award and the Patron’s Award (Burnside painting Group), Campbelltown Reflections (Campbelltown Art Show) and Coralie Armstrong, 2021 and 2022 (South Australian Watercolour Society).

Alex, 21×30 cm – In my portraits I try to capture mainly glimpses of ephemere expressions.

Another wave, 70×50 cm – An image overdone but still new, fresh and different like any other wave.

Barossa Valley, 50×70 cm – I tried to illustrate the beauty of Barossa area from a unusual vintage point. 

The Cup, 70×50 cm – Capturing movement, mass and volumes is very rewarding in watercolour.

Marina, 50×70 cm – An evening at Port Adelaide marina, full of magic.

Lunch at the farm, 35×50 cm – Life is a miracle full of attitude and feelings.
