Watercolor sketches today...




Chloé...

This is my daughter Chloé, a portrait sketch painted this afternoon...
I hope I'll get myself to paint her again soon, as I found it mostly inspiring. I would like to get her better than this, she looks a bit young here and some things makes here look just not how she is. : )

Quick "portrait"...


This sketch is not very good and it's a bit messy in some way, and for me it doesn't feel "finished". But I rarely go back to work on my sketches after a session, I prefer leave it as it is and try to do better next time. This was a fast sketch so the result will have be enough, when done in the conditions it was painted. Enough, also because it makes me want to do better next time and paint again soon... What could be better than that? 

Watercolor sketch today...


Back from a long holiday week-end again (there a many of those the month of may, in France) and time for a figure drawing session to get concentrated on what I should do. Short pose for this watercolor sketch of today...

Watercolor figure sketches today...






I'm desperately searching for something... what? Difficult to know, a progress maybe but more just pleasure for now. Pleasure that can make me feel that what I do is worth it. I think I lost my eager to work right now, the eager I got inside me for a few years back. It makes me panic a little, but I try to tell myself it's just an empty period that will go away as soon as I get the chance to discover new and inspiring things...
