We create unique tutorials for watercolor painting with step-by-step lessons from the greatest watercolorist

How we started.
Vitali Dets (born in 1981) – Ukrainian artist, who invented his own method of fast learning.
Since childhood, he always found the most efficient way to learn new things.
1. He has 2 educations in management and marketing, received in Berlin (MBA) and Ukraine;
2. He speaks fluently 7 languages: English, Russian, Ukrainian, Italian, Spanish, French, German;
3. He plays guitar, piano and has more other achievements in different fields due to his fast learning method;
4. He learned oil and watercolor painting on his own.
He is the first who created master-classes in oil painting (1 painting - 1 master-class) in Ukraine in 2005. Since 2005, more than 5000 amateur artists created their own paintings within one day in his studio. He is a finalist of TOYP of Ukraine 2014 for personal achievements for this method. Every time he constantly learns something new. He shares it with others. He taught painting for the first time when he was 8 years old.
He really believes that we know already everything, but forgot it.
Lots of artists followed him in new trend "painting within one day" and created their own studios applying the same method of teaching. Afterwards, more than 1 million people started painting using his method of teaching in Ukraine.
But he could not make master-classes for more people because of distance and lack of time. Maximum 150 people per month. But his desire was to spread the knowledge to the bigger audience.

Meeting Andrej Gerasimiuk - great watercolorist with a huge experience in watercolor.
Vitali and Andrej have met in 2014. Vitali has taken lots of lessons from Andrej to develop his skills in watercolor. Vitalii enhanced his skills in watercolor very fast, applying his method.

Idea of the book
Back in 2015, he had the insight to share skills with others by creating step-by-step lessons with printed sketches on watercolor paper. He started experimenting with different types of paper, colors etc. Finally, he found out the fast and efficient method of sharing professional skills with beginners. He created his first book "Watercolor trip to Italy". It became really unique tutorial artbook. Vitali has visited the world's largest trade fair for books "Frankfurt Book Fair" and found out that he was the first to create such a book. Got inspired, he registered a brand named INSPAREA (Inspiration Area)

The mission of Insparea (Inspiration Area): to inspire people for creative thinking, showing them the simplicity of art process, motivating people for a better life and make them feel better. The idea of the book: Awaken the Artist in everybody. The book shows how everyone can learn painting very fast just in a few steps. Authors share their professional knowledge and secrets in watercolor in form of interactive step-by-step lessons.

First book "Watercolor trip to Italy"
Vitali and Andrej traveled more than 5 times to Italy to gather all the necessary materials (sketches, photo etc.). They selected the best scenery to represent the most authentic spirit of the country. Then, it took them 5 months to create 40 watercolors among which they have chosen the 20 best to include in the book. Having prepared detailed instructions with a description of used colors, applied techniques, they created their first book. Sales started in November 2016. Since that time, more than 2500 books have been sold in all over the world.
There was lots of positive feedback on the book from people of different countries, which showed their interest. Afterwards, the book has been launched in 4 different languages.

Second book "Watercolor trip to France"
In may 2017 they started preparing a new book, traveling along Provence in France. It took them 4 months to issue a new book "Watercolor trip to France". The book will appear on Etsy in March 2018.

Third book. Coming soon after...
At this given moment, they are working on a new book "Watercolor trip to Spain".

Vitali hopes that Etsy will help him to spread their knowledge of professional watercolor painting in such a unique book format. Thus he can share it with the world.

    Every time I learn something new, I teach somebody to do it in the best way. I really believe that it is not important who you are, but the way you discover this world. Painting opens one's mind to new things and ideas.

  • Irina Dets
