PICT3725a Asian Dream Mandalay Palace at Twilight
My last watercolor painting already 7 years old! That is one of the biggest visual shock I had in my life; Our bus in Burma passed in front of that place in the same light and despite our cries for stopping the driver did not! I found a postcard the day after with that scenery and reproduced it when back at home; It was a great success but the paper worked too much; When dry I put it completely in a basin of water to slacken it but some dark colours moved; I dried it immediately with kleenex touches and had to repare the fine drawings melt; The paper was now OK but this little painting took globally 24 hours quite non stop to be achieved! It is one of my last one before consecrating all my time to Webshots and now Ipernity! Je dédie celle-ci à Jean-Pierre Delmur pour qui la Birmanie a aussi été un choc visuel et sentimental et dont j'apprécie les photos en général et sur cette merveilleuse destination! Jacques

C'est magnifique ! Quelles techniques utilises-tu ? Uniquement de l'aquarelle ?

Oui uniquement de l'aquarelle, sans tracé au crayon préalable car il se verrait dans la transparence de celle-ci, merci Amandine!
