Watercolour paintings by Kathrin Schwarz aka Colors of the Wild. As one of Illustrate's original collective, Kathrin has been with us from the beginning and continues to add to her collection of beautiful watercolour paintings. Based in Vienna, Austria, Kathrin studies graphic design and taught herself how to paint in her spare time. For her, watercolour is the best medium as she loves the vibrant colours and tranquillity of painting.
If you want to hear in Kathrin's own words who she is and why she has chosen her medium of art:
"My name is Kathrin and I'm 22 years old. I live in Vienna and study graphic design in this beautiful city. I am drawing since I was a child, but after my graduation in 2013 I started to draw more often because I had plenty of time and since then I'm improving my drawing skills. There are often people asking me where I learned drawing, but it's all self-taught.
I prefer painting with watercolor because in my opinion it looks very beautiful and I love the colors! I mostly draw animals. I always had pets and grew up with them, so animals are part of my life."
