"White rose in my garden", colored pencil drawing, 13X14 cm.
A photorealistic floral drawing of a white rose in pale yellow, warm white colors, and beautiful contrast of the dark ground and green foliages.
I've used professional Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils on drawing paper. Colored pencils on paper has a little waxy aspect. This drawing takes me about 20 hours of working.
I was inspired by the roses in my garden. I always keep in mind the beauty and pleasant vision of a decorative, figurative and realistic artwork.I put my signature on the white border surrounding the drawing.
The drawing is framed with a light neutral grey wood frame, double mat white and grey, and acrylic glass. Sober, discreet, matte finish, and wood texture, this frame is (you can see it on additional photos) perfect in a classical, shabby chic interior, gustavian style, or contemporary interior decoration.
This artwork is ready to hang.
I am a french professional painter. All my artworks are original paintings and drawings, direct from my studio in Touraine. For as long as I can remember, I have always painted and drew. I have studied experimental cinema and engraving at the Institut d'Arts Visuels of Orléans, France. My favorite practice, in cinema, was to draw the story-boards ! I get an Art School High Diploma in 1989. I began painting in 1994. I regularly exhibit my painting in collective or solo shows. I also often participate (and win) in big size painting compétitions, in France. I am also a lyrical mezzo singer in the professionnal choir from Opera of Tours, France. Depuis aussi longtemps que je me souvienne, j'ai toujours peint et dessiné. J'ai fait les Beaux Arts à l'IAV d'Orléans, où j'ai obtenu mon DNSEP en 1989. A l'époque, je faisais de la gravure et du cinéma expérimental. Ce que je préférais dans le cinéma, c'était de dessiner les story-board ! Je suis venue tardivement à la peinture : 1994.
