He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Yan Nascimbene, 1949-2013

Posted by Charley Parker at 4:15 pm

Yan Nascimbene
Yan Nascimbene’s beautiful, elegant and deceptively simple illustrations and watercolors capture nuances of light and color that give you an immediate feeling of place and time, and often evoke an emotional connection to events or places in your own life.

Nascimbene died last Thursday, January 31, 2013, at the age of 63.
