"Lemons and blooms"...


A demo I started in watercolor class. Time is always short to teach and finish the work in one lesson. Back in the studio and after reflection, a few brushstrokes to complete some details. I leave the unfinished impression to let the viewer do the rest in his mind...

Figure sketching session...



Forced myself to keep going today although quite tired with some kind of flue. Now I'm happy that it's the evening and that I soon can relax on my coach! 
The studio was over crowded, noisy and the energy was weird. My focus came and went in a disturbing way I had a hard time to get things down on the paper. As soon as my concentration leaves my mind the whole process and result feel and looks empty. It's essential to be totally into what we do when we draw, just as most of our occupations.

More tulips...


Another tulip study in watercolor on gesso treated drawing paper (size 44 x 31cm). I will soon try to mix acrylics with watercolor or maybe exclusively acrylics depending on the result.
(the surface here is white although my picture here looks grey, sorry for the bad quality.)

While waiting...



I new I would have some time to kill and weather was pleasant sunday, I had brought my painting kit and I thought I better do at least even a tiny study or two. So I did these ones, about the light on a group of buildings. I always want a better result and do more, but lately I try to keep cool and be happy with whatever the day can offer. I have to get out on the spot more often, now when spring is slowly but surely coming to us...
