Clear water study...



Views from the boat (Mauritius)...





Difficult conditions on the boat today while the guys were fishing. Windy, waterdrops all over, the boat changing direction every five minutes, and of course a boat is rarely still. Somehow this year I managed not getting seasick while painting.
I love to study clouds, painting them or not doesn't really matter. Sure I always feel the urge for painting then, but I can accept just to watch...

Hat salesman on the beach in my Moleskine...




This was a very fast sketch of a hat salesman passing by on the beach (Mauritius). I kind of liked using watercolor in my Moleskine sketchbook these days. The colors don't adhere right away on the paper which can give interesting effects, they alos stay saturated I thought. Fist time I get this good feeling on this paper. It's funny how we can change our opinions sometimes.
