In fact, the watercolor paintings are extremely difficult and artistic, and are even called the “Goldbach conjecture” in art.

Many of them are not only the winners of many important watercolor awards in the world, but also the organizers and planners of the important international watercolor exhibitions, and even the international watercolor competition.
