      malheureusement, je suis de garde le 18 fevrier :( et donc je vais encore rater Lyon cette année à mon plus grand regret…. (je serai à Roselie et Montrouge ...)
      on va donc encore devoir attendre un peu afin de finalement se rencontrer…

    Good job!
    Insane, how exactly you painted the lilies, one like the other!
    Then have the courage to put the pollution on this Perfect painting.
    Crazy!
    Like it a lot.

    • Marc MussatPLUS

      hi!
      thanks for your vote ! I apperciate…
      concerning the lilies, I first make a point pattern using a small template according to the density of lilies I want to paint. Then I gradually build up the lilies with a dark colour (I paint with oils - I use burn umber ) the dilution is essential - no too thick or too fluid… (points into lines, lines into curves…)
      after drying, i can start adding colours to hihlight or shadow.
      then after complete drying,  i can use either an airbrush or pastels .
      If you are intersted take a look at my small tutorial (in english - with pictures) :

    Thank you for your explanation about the painting of the lilies, it was very interesting and instructive
    I also went via your link to your homepage. Your illustration is really skillful and professional. In any case, I will take over one or the other here.
    Thanks again!
