About me

Lydia Cuevas Acuarela

Lydia Cuevas,
10 May 1964

Since I remember I have a natural talent for drawing and color. I knew the technique watercolor in 1998 and made contact with the Association of Basque watercolorists of Bilbao and attended workshops of various artists.

In recent years I've participated in exhibitions and meetings, permanently displayed in the gallery "Atalayarte" in Castro-Urdiales (Spain) Awarded works in the editions of 2000 and 2001 in the Competition Painting of the same city.

Gradually this passion has become a way of life. A way to discover, know and know myself. When I moved for two years in Italy, I made contact with other painters and other techniques. I painted very much outdoor and I have done exhibitions in Rome and Puglia and continued exhibitions in Spain.

I experimented with oil and acrylic always coming back to the watercolor. The immediacy of the medium, its language clear and transparent, the magic of water fascinated me from the very first time and I find the best way to express myself. It's a technique that I'm passionate about always mysterious, surprising and exciting.

I have taken courses with some of the best Watercolor masters like Alvaro Castagnet, Francisco Castro, Manolo Jimenez y J.M. Mendez. I participate since 2014 in the course for advanced watercolorists JM Mendez and I belong to Agrupació of Aquarel.listes de Catalunya in Barcelona (Spain) where I live in.
