No more Facebook :crazy: 
I had a Facebook account, but I stoped it for a lot of reasons.
In first it took me too much time, I was on a lot photos on others accounts without my permission
and I don't like it and Facebook is the death of all the beautifuls little blogs...

Thank you very much Marika :rose:
Lille is the city where i was born and where i also exhibit...
so i was very inspired to paint it, the atmopshere and the wet streets
from the northern Europe are great to paint.
I have to visit Berlin, i am sure to make good photos to paint.
But a lot of people want a painting with a New York view :crazy:

You're most welcome. Oh it's from Lille! I've never had the pleasure to visit Lille, but these street scenes in your paintings sure look amazing. I'm completely in awe of your talent and will be studying your work a lot to learn more. I used to live in Brest 1998-1999, not as pretty a town, I'm sure, but the seashores in Bretagne would have been well worth painting. My paintings mostly depict scenes from my hometown up north here in Finland. :)

Je crois qu'il n'existe décidément pas de mots assez fort pour décrire mon admiration devant de tels chefs-d’œuvre! Une telle maîtrise, une telle précision dépasse l'entendement :faint:

duytter Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
:D Devant un aussi beau commentaire, je manque moi
aussi de mots pour te répondre... tout bêtement "MERCI !"
Tu sais que je peins depuis longtemps et que j'en suis arrivé
là après des années et des années de travail. Je peins depuis
que je suis gamin et je prends toujours un énorme plaisir
lorsque je m'installe devant mon chevalet. Je remercierai toujours
les personnes qui m'ont donnés des pinceaux et des pots de peinture
pour la première fois en école maternelle, afin que je puisse peindre
des animaux sur les murs de l'école.
Je crois que le déclic vient de là et ensuite les 6 années passées en école
d'art appliqué (ESAAT-1979/85) à Roubaix avec d'excellents professeurs,
ont renforcé ma technique et mon envie de peindre et de dessiner.
J'y suis rentré à 16 ans et j'avais déjà un bon dossier de dessins et peinture
pour me présenter au concours d'entrée. Beaucoup de gens m'ont donnés
des coups pouce sur mon parcourt jusqu'à aujourd'hui et je les remercie tous.
Mais la solution vient du travail régulier et du plaisir que j'ai à dessiner.

J'admire d'autant plus les artistes comme toi qui travaillent en traditionnel! C'est vraiment un labeur de longue haleine, où les erreurs sont certainement plus difficiles à corriger qu'en digital et où il y a moins d'outils et d'assistance! Je reconnais que j'ai du mal à me passer de mon CTRL+Z pour mes erreurs et des calques! :D
Reply
:iconduytter:
duytter Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
J'aime aussi travailler des création sur Photoshop et le Ctrl+Z,
l'historique et les calques me sont aussi très utiles :)
J'ai une formation en création textile et j'ai travaillé 21 dans
l'impression textile. Les 13 dernières années en entreprise je
faisais toutes mes créations sur Photoshop et j'ai connu les débuts
de l'informatique.... c'était galère :D
Je fais encore des décorations de stand pour le salon textile Tissu Premier,
je crée de grand panneaux et des kakémonos sur Photoshop.
Tu peux en voir un sur mon autre compte DA (portraits) ---> [link]
Merci pour tes bons commentaires et tu as raison, le dessin traditionnel
est quand même plus difficile à maîtriser.... même si je sais
qu'on peut faire de belles choses sur ordinateur et qu'il faut de toute façon
du talent, la machine n'invente rien...

Hello Dear Brother Daniel, you know I just admire and love your work and skills. But I keep repeating that as long as I can :-) This one is very special, I can almost hear the steps on the wet street, the talking on the phone, the running engines of the cars. The wonderful effect of your realistic work is that you take us there and make the city "feel-able" to us. You give us experience. And that is such a wonderful achievement. Thanks for sharing your art with us. But most of all: thank you for being such a fantastic person. :hug:
