Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

A small road painting.

I decided on a “small road”, done in gouache for myApril postcard to Robyn. Starting with the envelope, I painted in gouche a quick sketch of what I would like to do on the postcard.

…envelope sketch…

I made a first little painting, on site, and found it too heavy and overworked.(Painting 1)

…painting 1…

gouache, ink and pencil on watercolor paper, 19x20cm.

Fortunately, the little road leads up to our house at  Coin Perdu and seeing it was close by, I could easily take my chair and goauche and try another one, which I found better, lighter.(painting 2).

…painting 2…

gouache, ink and pencil on watercolor paper, 19x20cm.

# Also have a look here at Vivien’s road in England, which she also did for a postcard, very different in atmosphere and beautiful!

**And lastly.. I’ve been invited by Anna  to take part in her series of interviews and it will be posted on her blog See. Be. Draw. on 28 April.

Until next time…à bientôt!

  3. Actually, Ronelle, I want them both! 😉 Fascinating to see two approaches to the scene and I’m touched that you went back to perfect a painting for me. Thank you, I love every aspect of your gorgeous gift.

  6. Lucky Robyn!!! Both of the paintings have such a different feel to them. I too prefer the second one because it is so full of light. It came out really great!

    I have changed my blog address due to technical difficulties with the original one. Hope you come to visit.
