Lake Monteynard. watercolors.

I paint this one straight on my sketchbook, while fishing on the lake.
Then I used Brushes on the laptop to make it at my own idea.

French Polynesia #1

This is a painting for Kailea, daughter of my friend Chasta.
A view about the island they are living at.
Huahine, and the harbor with boats coming from all other islands of the French Polynesia.
This one comes from Papeete.

I did this painting while looking at two photos I took four years ago when I was travelling there.
I mixed the hut and pier from the first picture and I added some poeple from the 2nd pic, changing the place of the persons.
Here are the pics below :

Lake Monteynard. watercolors.

I try the same way than last drawing, but with real watercolors on a real sketchbook.
Cool result as well.
I will keep on this way too.

Lake Monteynard. Digital 4

I try the simple strokes style on the laptop painting.
Cool result, so I'll keep on this way.

Lake Monteynard. Digital 3

Well, I'm improving the oil painting skills.
This one looks like a drawing and not a too close copy from the photograph.
I want more abstract strokes.
Coming soon.

Here is the photograph, from last september :

Olbia. Sardaigne.

I went to the Sardinia Island in Italia during springtime in 2008 and 2009.
Already painted some watercolors from these journeys.
Here is the first digital Oil-brush painting.
Not so bad, but doesn't sound really good to me.
Next one will be better !
Stay tuned.

Here is the photograph used for this painting at home.
I show this photo because some "friends" of mine asked if I used the photoshop settings to turn directly my photos into paintings with the software. I definitely want to show that the painting is not copied and pasted from the photo, it's really painted on a white paper, looking at the photo beside on the screen. You can see big differences about the lines and perspectives if you compare the model and the paintings.

San Francisco 1

I went to northern California four years ago.
San Francisco is now my favourite city ever, so many viewes there were definitely unforgettable.
Here is the first painting from this journey.
It was october, cool autumn weather.
I still have to work before catching my own way painting.
But already pretty good.

Here is the photograph about this painting :

Bee Hives

Two bee-hives near my place in the Vercors Natural Park.
I'm practising the Oil-brush tool from software and it looks like cool.
But now, I have to find my own way of painting.
Not so easy.
Big deal coming to me.
That's life.

Here is below the photograph about this painting :
