Wonderful texture, Helen. The shadow of your orb is subtle but quite striking. What sort of seed pod is it?
I so enjoy your sketchbook...I think painting with watercolor is so very brave.

Excelente, como siempre. Resuelves la transparencia del cristal de forma única.

Thanks Marilyn, once I bought a painting from my friend Juan Carlos Cardesin here on blogspot and it was a painting of a seed. A beautiful piece of art. When Juan Carlos later on came to visit Paris he brought me the seed. I still have it as you can see, but I don't know from what plant it comes. "A bientôt!"

Hello Laurent, long time, time flies!! Hope you're still busy and happy in the Gobelins. I'm pretty good myself actually. Not even the the dark winter coming closer nor the crisis affects me, he he. Take care!

Sergio, gracias; que generoso eres con tus comentarios. La luz y el agua son mis primeros obsesiones y fueron los que me daron ganas de pintar desde siempre. Un abrazo!

Helen, merci pour tes commentaires, venant de toi ça compte. Je montre ton travail à mes élèves, ils veulent tous venir te voir :)

Ô, Nicolas!! Quel gentil commentaire!! Je me sens comme un élève moi même. Tes élèves sont bien gentils me semble-t-il, he he. La vie, et la peinture, ne sont que des longs apprentissages...
