Pencil and marker on paper 14 cm x 14 cm Aug 2015 I saw this rose in the Montreal botanical garden. The more I look at it, the more I want to dive into it. Its colors are gorgeous but it’s quite fascinating in white and black too.

Gouache and news paper on paper 19 x 9.6 cm september 2014 This time i wanted to try a monochrome and to play with the composition. The flower is rejected on the right side, The color is more or less the color of newspaper. Newspapers are also glued around the flower. Another way for me to show the influence of news on our minds and of newspaper on nature.
