Practicing figure sketching. #OneWeek100People2017

Did you participate to that event too? 😊 Last week, Marc Taro Holmes and Liz Steel had the great idea to encourage the sketchers from all over the world to practice their people sketching, trying to make 100 people sketch in one week.

 

I decided to participate, even if I regretted the many people of India (always eager to pose!) and the warm weather helping to go out and sketch! At last, I reached the 100 sketches! 😀 Even if I wasn’t able to do a lot of sketches from life, I took the chance to experiment a lot with different sketching materials to try to improve my people sketching.

In fact, it was not on purpose but I changed the medium each day, funnily! ☺️
NB : I didn’t sketched all day but rather moved forward a lot on the challenge the days I sketched! 😉

 

The first day of the challenge, I was for a few hours in Paris, on my way back from India.

The gloomy rainy weather were really discouraging but, thanks to the #OneWeek100People2017 challenge, I forced myself to go out and find a cafe spot where I could sketch people. 😊 Continue reading

Watercolor sketches from India!!!!!

I am in India for a while and I can’t believe what I see and what I live. All of it is really stunning! The dreamy atmosphere, the smile of people, the colors, the business… This is so impressive!!

I am really happy to share with you some of my loose work in this colorful and exciting country.
Temples and statues everywhere, bright colors, gorgeous atmospheres… India is a real gift for the painter!

Watercolor inspiration, and my upcoming workshop, in France.

So, I guess I am going to talk a lot about watercolor workshops these days… 😉
Is’t it so exciting to be able to paint together in some gorgeous places all over the world though?!! 😃

Of course, the group for India is full but we are currently setting the group for my future workshop in France.

 

It will take place next September (2 to 15 September) but Nancy, my trip organiser said it’s time for those was are interested in attending to register, as we have to hold the rooms in the hotels until then, thanks to the registering. 😊

A lot of people especially know Paris and Provence, in France but, believe me, there are many absolutely gorgeous places in the other regions too ! And, in my opinion, Brittany is one of the most beautiful, because of its stunning coasts, authentic villages and diversity of landscapes and atmospheres. 😍
There are so much awesome places and adorable secret spots that you could paint there for a whole year without feeling bored! 😅 😀

As I know Brittany really well, I chose myselft the places we will visit and paint. So I can speak in full knowledge of the facts. 😉 Continue reading

A few holiday sketches… And my happy new year wishes!

Hey, I know that’s a bit late to share some Christmas tree sketches but my mom likes to keep it up to the New Year eve to spin things out so… 😉 maybe that’s not so late after all?! 😅

The fir is too big and too heavy by now to go inside the house so we decorated it in the courtyard.
Isn’t it lovely? 😃 holiday3

Work(s) in progress!

Hi everyone!

There is so much going on, here, and so much things so handle that I have not been able to share anything for a while…
Frankly, I will probably need one more week to offer a real content here so I decided to publish this short “work(s) in progress” post, so that you know that I didn’t forget you! 😉

I shot a lot of videos for you during the past few weeks, indeed.
I am looking forward to working on the footages to create the real videos! 😃

Here is a bit of a teasing. 😝

 

I made myself a new palette and shot the whole operation for you (with some comments about my color choices).
Here it is. You’ll see that it’s a very special one! I really like to use it. 😊

Hey, I am so happy to announce that I worked on a new watercolor workshop to offer, 😀 with Nancy Walsh, from Going Places Together!
This time, I invite you to discover my home town in France, the amazing Brittany, and especially the coast near where I live : the south and center Finistere.

This is such an awesome region! I am sure you will like the places I chose for you, here. 😍
I think you could say that the atmosphere, here, is a bit between Ireland (celtic cousins!) and… France, of course. ☺️

 

A watercolor workshop in France. September 2017.
