    These are really beautiful. They really capture the mood of the scenes.

    Do you draw with pencil first or do you just paint directly with the watercolor?

    Wow! These are really nice. I love that they are true watercolors not digital. The colors are very rich and your details are sharp. You have a nice grasp of the materials and technique. I enjoyed seeing your process as well.

    Keep up the good work! You've inspired me to get our my watercolors agian!

    In search of the mythical art job!

    This is very impressive work, great composition and balance of light. The little details tie everything together nicely.

    Keep it up!

    They're all great but still copied from a photograph. I feel like they wold have more weight and legitimacy if they were true studies from life. Do that next time. Other than that, your drawing technique is aesthetically pleasing

    Here is a watercolor speed made during the Café Salé Workshop 2010 in Paris.
    It takes me about 45 - 60 min.
    It's another Koya-san view in Kansai, Japan.

    Thank you for these works! I'm quite fond of this style myself. Also, I have a friend who's been travelling in Japan and he has tons of pictures of different areas, rural and urban... such an inspirational place, it is.

    Really like how loose you're brushstrokes are, mainly on the woods and trees creating the precise volume and mood even in the more sketchy pics. Also really liked the rendering on that b & w piece. It's a watercolor class, just looking at this thread.Truly inspiring!

    Thank you for your comments, it's give me motivation!

    here is a new one, very quickly done, about 15 min, the goal is catching the essence of the subject, it might be short for somebody, but it's long 15 minutes, enough long for not be stressed by time and be focus on you draw.
    I don't lose time to draw details, I start directly with ink to fix the bridge by the three on the left, and every stuff add easily around. The ink is dried very quickly by the paper, so after only few strokes I paint directly with watercolor "to dress" my atmosphere. It's an obligation to stop after 15 min as I decided before I start because afterwhile things begin worse.

    So, no more blabla, now the picture:
