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!
Next week, I will fly to India and will able to enjoy 17 awesome days in a different colorful culture… I am so looking forward to discovering it… and to painting it, of course! 🎨
Plus, I will have the amazing chance to lead a watercolor workshop there and I am so excited about it!! 😝
Leaving for India!! 🕌
Actually, I only made really few trips during these 15 past years and I even realized I have never been out of Europe yet!!
So, I am sure it’s going to be a life-changing adventure for me! Because of India and because of to the watercolor workshop too. 😊 Continue reading →
I realized that there was a last demo from my Indian prep sketches I didn’t shared with you yet! 😉
That’s a short video where I sketch a woman wearing a yellow sari and holding a jar on her head. What a lovely scene to paint! 😊
I sketched this after a photo and I am really looking forward to painting this kind of subject, on location, in India, next February! 😀
I am so impatient!!!
I am sure that, on location, for some people sketching, I will have to paint even faster than 7 mn for a sketch! 😉
As an inspiration for the week end, here is a video where I am painting a loose watercolor sketch of an Indian woman wearing a red sari. That’s a 5 minutes painting so that is definitely the kind of quick sketch I would like to do a lot in India, in my travel diary, taking advantage of the beautiful and colorful outfits of the Indian people! 😀
By the way, our little group for India (I chose to limit it to around 10 people) is growing gradually. 😊 Thank you so much for the artists that have decided to take part in this adventure with me!! 😀😘
First of all, thank you so much for your comments on the previous articles. I really love that this blog can be a place for sharing, with interesting creative exchanges!
Thanks for being a part of it, reacting and sharing your point of view, your experience! 😀😘
Today, I would like to share with you a video I made when doing some India sketches as a prep for my future watercolor workshop there. (Hiiiiii, so excited!!!! 😆)
That’s a 15 mn loose watercolor sketch of the Taj Mahal. 😊 The video is 5 mn long, though, as I speeded up some parts. 😉
I hope it will be interesting for you to watch! 😊
I admit that it’s interesting for me, too, because it’s a chance to take a step back and to consider how I work with another perspective. Continue reading →
Would you like to paint with me, for real?! 😀
Would you be tempted to discover India and creating a watercolor journal from your trip?
I am just amazed to announce that I can offer you both!!!
Isn’t it the best news, ever?!
