"Mint in round vase I"....



I always have an attraction to black and white pictures or paintings and drawings. I also love doing them and start wondering why I stick so much to color. I think that once I feel I got control over color I can nice and easy go back to monochrome, without any regrets.

Très belle étude !
Quelle couleur avez vous utilisé ? Gris de payne ?

Merci Christophe, j'ai utilisé le noir d'ivoire de chez Winsor et Newton.

It's beautiful. I seem to remember when you just started to use color... But anyway, b/w is always a good idea i think, wether you have the "powers" to handle color or not. It can be very powerful and because it doesn't look like in real life, it creates its own world.

J'aime beaucoup la couleur, mais cette aquarelle est très forte ! J'aime beaucoup la composition et la distribution des valeurs. Quel beau travail !
