« Ewa KARPINSKA est une élève de Jean-Louis MORELLE, peintre aquarelliste… : comme lui elle n'a de cesse que d'apprivoiser, dans chacune de ses oeuvres, le cycle de l'eau, maîtrisant à merveille les effets de cette technique incomparable. » (Vero)

« Eau des deltas des fleuves posée, assagie;

comme dans le pays de mon père … »

Ewa captures the magic of colour in water beautifully, similar to Jean-Louis Morelle. The book is worth getting but I guess the translation into English was done by someone who does not understand the medium. It could have been much better.

Thanks for your comments David!
We had the opportunity to work together with Ewa for a week making watercolors.
Ewa's inspiration is endless. She is a fantastic artist. Top-top-top.
