Muriel Buthier Chartrain (aquamuriel)

Born in France in 1961, I paint since 1981, mainly in watercolor, some landscapes barely suggested, sometimes abstract and in large formats. The subject is just an excuse to work on light. I suggest atmosphere and emotions by focusing me on the essential expression. The execution comes after a long meditation. My way of working does not leave me time to think about when I put the color: at this point, I no longer think to technic, even if it is there, underlying and essential. I act by instinct, which allows me to concentrate on what I want to express. Transparent and light, watercolor can being strong ...

Congratulations on you excellent work "La ligne" being selected the Artdoxa members favorite of the day. I liked it when you first put it up on Artdoxa and added it to my gallery of favorites. What attracted me wa the freshness of your approach and the well resolved composition. Keep up the great work.
All the best.
Tom

Thank you very much Muriel, your comment is very thoughtful and I agree with you completely. To me, all my work is "realistic" in that way. It's what I see in the world.
Your quote Zao Wou Ki is wonderful. Thanks again!
