LOS COLORES DEL AGUA. Watercolor painting in a large format

Zone: Hotel Sol de Jávea

“Los colores del agua” (“The colors of water”) is a tribute to the sea that bathes the Xàbia coasts. According to their creator, the exhibition, which is housed in the Hotel Sol in Jávea , “is designed to express the huge chromatic range that the sea provides to us depending on the moment and what it provokes in us”. However, their author goes beyond the sea as a natural eco-system and extrapolates it “as a reflection of the sky which represents the soul” and with the poetic line of the horizon as the barrier that unites and divides the sky and soul with each other.
