Why is understated watercolor as a medium?

Why is understated watercolor as a medium?

 This question prompted me comments from the close environment of those who look at the picture on the way: Like, I do not like it.
 Even a century ago, watercolor has occupied a leading position as a medium. It is not surprising, because its fluidity and freshness was perfect for painting landscapes and flowers. Today, artists are increasingly returning to watercolor medium, and the topics are, of portraits and figure studies, and almost anything can be painted.
 Nevertheless, in galleries and museums, mostly we see the oil paintings. This is a consequence of market relations, because customers are interested in imposing oil paintings.
 What was once a template for painting in oil or medium that is "cheap" is actually a demanding technique, which can never be just a product of the academic tradition, but requires a data practice and serves as a vehicle for expressing their ideas.
 I go back to the beginning, watercolor as medium is certainly have no place in a market that deserves, and therefore I ask all of you, how to change and give more attention to the artistic sensibility in the aggressive flow of the art scene today?
 I believe the artists and their contribution to "fight for the rights of watercolors."

Such a richly varied exhibition Jasna Dragun stems from her rich experience cognitive, aesthetic sensitivity and great devotion to fine arts. The author presents her inherent artistic vision, very courageous and consistent regardless of the technique or motive. We could say that there is no motive that is not worth her attention, on the contrary, she finds beauty in all, each a challenge and an inspiration for a new artistic expression. Expressing them in various techniques reveals her feelings for material property which allows to influence the character of the offense. Skillfully achieves transparency and freshness of watercolors, acrylics stability and fullness. In each work brings her personal experience seen, and by the same shows herself. She looks and sees the world around her, expressing admiration for each new opportunity and enjoy the way of artistic creativity.
