Transparency of the medium, truth of the model

To keep in line with the established tradition, I have painted my 3 darlings in front of Chefchaouen background.


Equipped with all the photos of our trip to Morocco, I thought very easy to select the one that I would reproduce in watercolor.

But it wouldn’t, none suits me. It doesn’t matter,with different parts,I can build my own picture.


  • restore the atmosphere of the place, ie blue backgrounds, impromptu alleys
  • paint expressive faces, bright, fresh
  • Take a format which fit a greeting card


I start with what I like most (why not?) Faces.


On a format 28X32 cm, I paint the 3 faces in a day, while an Apple specialist is trying to migrate my computer on MacOs LION.
