  17. Chère Madame,Tout d’abord de superbes compliments pour vos peintures. Je demeure à MONTARGIS dans le loiret, ville de la prasline. Je pratique l’aquarelle
    depuiS de nombreuses années, ayant obtenu quelques récompenses, mais ma satisfaction n’est pas complète. En effet votre mode d’intervention en y ajoutant
    de la peinture à l’eau,ceci serait profitable. J’ai eu le bonheur de suivre des cours avec Jean-Claude BAUMIER Maître Pastelliste de France, cela m’a beaucoup
    plu et je désire continuer et ma question se pose sur l’utilisation de papier ? Quand est-il de cela?
    Il me serait agréable de connaître votre adresse de vous adresser quelques photos aux fins de connaître votre sentment ceci sans fioriturtes !
    A vous lire. Civilités respectueuses.
    Pierejean BLOT 8, rue Cormenin 45200 MONTARGIS LOIRET.

    1. Merci pour votre commentaire. J’utilise du papier sablé UArt pour les sous-peintures aquarelles de qualité 400. Ce papier ne réagit pas comme le papier aquarelle car vous ne pourrez pas très bien contrôler l’aquarelle dessus. Il a tendance à gonfler les couleurs. Je pastelle simplement les zones que je ne pouvais pas contrôler.
      Vous pouvez envoyer des photos de votre travail à mon adresse e-mail:
