An Architect Paints Famous Cities Around The World In Watercolor

Burano, Italy

According to Maja Wrońska: “I’m an architect, watercolorist and freelance illustrator from Poland. I create mostly watercolors that focus on architecture and cities. This is my collection of watercolors I made that features many famous cities around the world. I post a lot of work on my Instagram.”

“As I mentioned, I am an architect. I started drawing when I was a kid. My mum is also an architect and she allowed me to paint with her professional tools. I started to paint for real when I was preparing myself for an exam in drawing when I applied to study architecture.”


“When I got to the Warsaw University of Technology, where I studied architecture, I created an account on Deviant, where I posted my artwork. I felt really encouraged by the community there, so I created an Instagram and Facebook page, and when I graduated I started my own company. In my company, besides designing architecture, I paint watercolors and sell them.”

“I mostly use photos for reference. So the process starts with finding a topic and a proper photo of it. I mostly use royalty-free photos but sometimes when I want to paint something specific I contact people and ask them for permission to use their photos for reference. I painted a shop from Euphoria 2 weeks ago, so I contacted every shop owner in the area, and thanks to Demi Kai, who allowed me to use her photos, I painted Euphoria fanart.

When I have a photo, I think about the color scheme, I design it, then I do the sketch and paint it with watercolors, which takes several hours. Then scan it in high resolution, Photoshop joins the files, I adjust colors and tones to match the original, and then I upload it as a print, add original to my shop and post it on Instagram, Facebook and Reddit.”

“I like to draw and paint, I mostly focus on architecture and places, but from time to time I paint animals or other topics, like the fire extinguisher I sketched a week ago. Sometimes bad comments on my art make me think about what can I change in my art, but I tried not to take them personally.”

“I have created some looping watercolors, and I’m thinking about doing some eco-friendly NFTs but I must educate myself on how to do it. I also paint some detailed French apartment houses’ facades. If you like my paintings, you can also buy them at my shop.”
