Afternoon at the Louvre...




Needed to see some art today. Decided to go to the Louvre, even though I know I won't find the kind of paintings I would like to study (for example M.Borremans' art). My daughter came along and we ended up drawing sculptures. She's getting really good at drawing!
Nice week-end to you all!

My (forever) glass and water studies...

My (forever) glass and water studies; in my sketchbook...


and on Canson paper (Moulin du Roy)... 
But as usual I prefer what seems to be watercolor papers that are less adapted, simpler or cheaper  than most of watercolor papers made for that purpose. 

For an other example I also paint my figure paintings on some drawing papers (Sennelier) and washes react lovely just as the colors which stays vivid and transparent. They do that when the pigments dries on the surface instead of being absorbed into the paper.

In my Moleskine...





A few pages in my sketchbook today... 
I'm now on my "main" vacation this summer, in Tenerife, where it's seriously hot and african kind burning sun on my poor skin. Not a very wise choice for me, who tries to escape from the ultraviolet rays in summer.
A part from that the sea is marvelously clear and refreshing and food is excellent; fresh seafood and spanish chefs are the best one can get in my point of view. 
Another few more days before heading back home...

Rain!...




Rain and heavy wind, the so called "Mistral", this morning. First time ever I experience it in the south in summer! Quite nice for a change and good for the environment! But no painting for me...
