Popular Watercolor Realist Paintings
Realist Portrait Painting, "Happy Porter"$757.99
"With this portrait I wanted to represent a human being within a social context," begins Carlos Morales as he confides his intentions. "I depict a man taking a rest after a hard day's work. Despite his tired state, his face is full of vitality and joy. He is a porter at the fruit market and even though he's been carrying heavy loads, he smiles unafraid of the efforts he must make to provide for his family."
Titled "Alegre cargador" in Spanish.
Realist Watercolor Painting, "The Years that Pass By"$1,064.99
Time passes by so quickly, that it inspires Carlos Morales to freeze a moment through his art. He paints a scene from the city of Lima, with its ageless domes and bell towers in the distance. In the foreground, what once was a brand new, coveted car, now it's reduced to scrap, with chains keeping the doors together and bricks where tires used to be. "Humans share the same destiny," observes the Peruvian artist. He paints with watercolors, carefully detailing twisted metal and shiny church cupolas.
Titled "Los años que se van" in Spanish.
Children In A Rainy Street Original Watercolor Painting, "After the Rain II"$739.99
The shower is over and people come out to run errands. After the rain, the air is clean and fresh, the colors clear. Puddles fill the unpaved street of an Andean town in Huancayo, reflecting buildings are sky in the glassy water. Artist Carlos Morales captures a little boy who can't resist splashing in the water.
Titled "Despues de la lluvia II" in Spanish.
Realist Architectural Painting, "Old Lima"$1,064.99
An alleyway enters into the courtyard of a house in a section of Lima where Colonial architecture barely survives the passing of time. Carlos Morales allows a view of everyday customs in a painting of remarkable clarity. Working with watercolors, he masters the use of perspective to create a three dimensional illusion, as if one were standing on the doorway.
Titled "Lima antigua" in Spanish.
