“Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more,” Vincent van Gogh once said. After seeing Monica Schick’s art, you’ll realize it truly describes her work.
Monica Schick is an artist and illustrator who goes by the alias Schimoni Art. She lives in Switzerland, and the beautiful mountains and mystical forests that her home country is known for are an everyday inspiration for this talented artist.
In Schick’s particular case, she wants to inspire people to experience nature, and she does that by staying in touch with her followers on Instagram where she shares most of her work and videos to watch and learn from.
She never attended art school and learned almost everything she knows by experimenting on her own. She also learned a lot by taking classes on Skillshare, an online learning community with thousands of classes in art, design, and more.
She has experimented with almost all mediums, such as pencils, crayons, oils, pastels, acrylics, markers. For about three years now, she has been fascinated by watercolor, and mostly uses this technique in her paintings at the moment. If you want to learn how to do aquarelle, watch her videos, and try to copy her moves.
