I am born in a small village from Southern Boischaut and lives now in the valley ligérienne. I am a self-educated painter since ten years and takes part in local, regional exposures.... and also with new contests. I propose my watercolours with artistic reviews or newspapers. Some were selected in reviews of known visual arts good. I reproduce my watercolours starting from photographs which I take at the time of voyages or stays or according to old or recent postcards of more or less remote regions. My subjects of predilection are the scenes of the everyday life and over all, the landscapes of the edge of water, the animals. I try to translate with the watercolour with clear and limpid colors the changing reflections of the atmosphere and the light of the Charente-native coasts. The landscapes of remote regions were often my source of inspiration as well as the animals, the flowers and the portraits. I draw since my childhood. With adolescence, I made many tables with painting on silk because I liked much worked this matter which lets diffuse painting, from where thereafter the desire for discovering the watercolour. Since ten years, I practise this technique which I have tried to improve while following of the courses to the Workshop of the Elm for a few months always to progress more. I discovered also thereafter the oil-base paint, with the acrylic resin but I use very little the technique of the pastel. Website : http://lodya.artgallery.free.fr
