This is different from what I do usually but I was feeling springy with all the flowers and trees starting to blossom here. So this is from pictures of the magnolia tree in my backyard. I used watercolor and some gouache on the background because I wanted a more opaque painterly look.
I grew up in France but have been living in Canada for the last 12 years, I am currently located in North Vancouver and work from a studio on Pemberton Avenue.
I have two passions: - Painting the effects of light with watercolor on paper through portraits and cityscapes ( http://www.watercolorpainting.ca/ and http://www.yupopaperpainting.com/ ) - Building complex textures and edges with acrylics and mixed media on canvas (http://www.mixed-media-paintings.com)
