Après une longue interruption, j'ai décidé de reprendre ce blog pour y montrer mes peintures, pour la plupart numériques.
En effet,depuis environ un an, je me suis initiée à cet art qui était alors complètement nouveau pour moi. Reste donc à appliquer mon apprentissage à de nouvelles réalisations.
A small quick gouache of the entrance of the Chateau d'Yquem, in Gironde, where the harvest just completed. It is said that it will be a good year, for Bordeaux wine, but maybe the 2009 will be better…
We live on the edge of the estuary of the Gironde, and fishermen have these squares, mainly for fishing shrimp. Unfortunately, the storm Xynthia came here in February 2010 and won several small houses on stilts , like this one, below.
This painting was done for Paint And Draw Together ;at the beginning, I struggled with black and Prussian blue colors, and it was a total mess;I put the painting in a dark corner, got rid of this blue which dirties everything,(maybe I was heavy-handed) and forgot it;2 days ago, I saw Nancie Johnson’s puppy and was amazed of what she had done;it encouraged me, I took it out of it’s shade and went on until the end;there I used French ultramarine , instead.
The title referred to an Iroquois hair, –at a certain moment it should have it-but now it seems quite classical!
