Portraits
Transparency of the medium, truth of the model

Wishing card 2011

For years (if not ever), I have been sending  a picture of my children, based on a drawing worked on my computer. This year it will be a watercolor, of course!

Starting points

Christmas is almost here, I have to get my new greeting card ready to send it to all my relatives.

For years (if not ever), I have been sending  a picture of my children, based on a drawing worked on my computer. This year it will be a watercolor, of course!

So what are the requirements?

  • The subject is imposed: a portrait of the 3 darlings. I had made arrangements by asking the children to a Balinese Barong, · in the hallway of the hotel. So the model is ready.
  • The Barong is very strong in color, with marked forms. I'll have to represent it without encroaching on the main subject: : my children.
  • I don't want to copy picture. While browsing the web, I saw watercolors portrait smade by Stéphane Heurion which I liked very much, and I therefore wish to take inspiration from his style.
