It’s been a while since my last post. Almost a year! I didn’t really take a break from drawing though 🙂 ! So I decided to start uploading some of my creations again. You will see that I started to go digital a bit.

About this drawing, I drew it back in November 2018. I was spending the week-end on a chair, behind a stand as a helper exhibitor in an danish event. Autumn colors where everywhere, and reminded me of one of the places where I grew up, in France. A nice region called Le Berry, “the Country of Witches”.

I really like this drawing! Though I am a bit sad that I did not manage to get all the colors right in the picture. The original drawing has more vibrant colors. More green and red tones in it. But even with photo editors it was hard to find the original colors again. The art of taking good pictures of physical artworks is such a complex science!

The drawing itself is inspired from a 2007 poster of an event which, every year, regroups people around music and traditional instruments in Center France. At the time it was called “Les Rencontres de Saint-Chartier” or “Rencontres Internationales des Luthiers et Maitres Sonneurs”. Now I heard it is called “Le Son Continu”.

This very cool dragon re-appeared on the posters of the same event in 2008 and 2009. I did not manage to find the name of the artist yet.
