While working on the finalization of three textile pieces for an art-exhibition October at the place where my husband works, I try to approach watercolour in another way.
I realize that I miss doing nude studies. When I lived in Germany, I met with a group of women each Wednesday and we took turns in "sitting" for the others or sometimes we hired a model too. We mostly worked with water-colours but also with pencil, charcoal, gouache. It was great cause we were free to approach the work in whatever way we wanted, in a very intimate atmosphere. I did that for about 2 years, then I moved to France.
In France I only took up nude studies again when I went to art-school 4 years ago, where we had the opportunity to work in various techniques and sizes with very talented teachers who gave us precious insight.
Waiting for the right moment to look for a nude-study course or to find a model, I see these imaginary landscapes, with soft curves, inspiring human shapes...
