Choosing the right color is a cornerstone of any painting. To some, the process comes naturally, but others take special care in finding the right palette for their canvas. Artist Jowita Marczuk opens her sketchbook on Instagram to share how she breaks down landscapes into thoughtful color gradients and expressive illustrations.

Based in Heidelberg, Germany, Marczuk finds creative inspiration from her bucolic surroundings. Many of her watercolor studies are made en plein air, during hikes in the countryside. Each page shows the careful observation of light, color, and composition of natural and architectural subjects. “What I love about watercolor is the transparency, the way it behaves on the paper, and how it spreads and flows,” the artist explains.

Alongside a couple of small illustrations, Marczuk shows corresponding color gradients and palettes.”I'm enjoying the process,” she says. “Discovering how color mixes behave, how they turn out on paper, and what kind of feelings they can evoke.” These insightful sketches are photographed with the artist's paints and brushes, demonstrating to viewers her analytic painting process.

You can purchase prints and originals of Marczuk's work via her Etsy shop, and keep up to date with the artist's latest creations by following her on Instagram.
