Meet the Artist
Darya Mitta
Darya Mitta is a professional watercolor artist. Originally educated in Design she made a pivotal turn toward watercolor a decade ago and concentrated her efforts on mastering this art.

Expressive work with vivid light and shadow has become a calling card of Darya Mitta’s work. Whether it is a downtown cityscape connected in shadows or a pastoral depiction of a sunset in the countryside that drenches the scene in color, Darya is always striving to deepen the expressive nature of her painting capturing the subject's luminosity.
And as we know, you can’t have light without shadow, and Darya teaches her students to give them equal priority in their paintings and how to use light and shadow to design stronger compositions and bring drama to a variety of subject matters.
