My Bio
Hi! My name is Roberto Nieto and I live in Barcelona, Spain.

My main and “real” job (the one that pays my bills) is to design interfaces, web and mobile apps.

I’m an accessibility and user experience expert. I love my job, I love to organise interfaces and to solve the issues they may have. It's like sorting a big puzzle.

However, my true passion, hobby (and, sometimes, job) is to illustrate the nature, mountains, plants, rivers, clouds… You can see that the main protagonist of my illustrations is the majestuosity of the nature. This is my main theme, and I don’t know if some day it'll change. Right now, that's my passion and what I enjoy the most.

I studied art direction, graphic design, traditional and digital illustration. I have taken part in a lot of workshops: design of natural environments, landscape and fantasy illustration techniques, theory of light and colour…

Last but not least, I feel that the most important thing is daily practice. For me, this is the true secret about art and illustration: to persevere, to be patient and practise every day. It is the only way to improve your technique day by day!

Contact me if you have any questions or suggestions! Best regards!!

Landscaperbox project

hi everyone! I write here to announce my new little project: Landscaperbox It's a mini site where I collect the best resources, inspiration, tutorials and articles from landscape and environment artists. I just started this week, I will continue adding my resources and the best selection from the web. I hope that can be useful to anyone that start to learn painting landscapes, or somebody that search a site where all landscape resources are categorized. You can suggest your own landscape & environment resources. Thanks for your attention! :D
