This beautiful mermaid was inspired by a stained glass window.I transformed it to be more fleshy and I deliberately accentuated her round shape to give a sense of sensual and very feminine movement. A very watery theme definately yin.
I used gouache and gesso on watercolour paper.
I painted this portrait using gouache in a very watery manner almost like watercolour. You can see the transparency effect in the coat. It is the advantage of gouache you have the choice between transparency and opacity in the application of the paint.
A bit of calmness and reflection with this beautiful swan done in gouache.
I went this week to the funeral of a relative. It was taking place in the famous Paris cemetery Le Père Lachaise. It was a very sad day with rain and low sky. We were crying for the loss of a wonderful man who died abrubtly and too young. My heart still aches…This little angel done with brushpen and gouache helps me somehow in the grieving process…
