I have been painting in watercolor for over 17 years. I try to keep it simple, the beauty of nature touches me and gives me the desire to paint. Light and its effects on objects, contrasts that defines the shape of things are among my interests. My favorite subjects : landscapes, intimate or panoramic; street scenes, animated or quiet; architectures; buildings; places that attracts my attention, makes me wonder. I work in my studio, from sketches or mostly from my own photographs. When I travel I take a lot of pictures and I study the composition to frame properly. I can imagine the finish painting before I take the picture. In the studio I will review and rearrange if necessary before I draw the final composition on the paper. I draw my subject rigorously and then I apply the color with a brush directly and freely. Watercolour paintings must be spontaneous, fresh, transparent, bright and that is what I always keep in mind. I also do architectural portraits, residential & commercial.
