New home with a studio / by Mathieu Vaillancourt

Since the beginning of summer, my girlfriend has moved with me and we have installed our studio in a room. We can create each of our own art and thus inspire, encourage, ask and give criticism on our works.

Being both artists, we have arranged our studio with compartments for our artistic material, a metal wire on the wall to pin references and projects in progress. There is also a tripod for the camera if we want to record when we draw and paint. We may also add decorations on walls in the futur.

Principally I am an illustrator and I use most of the time black ink but recently I brought my first kit of watercolor and I am learning to mix color. My kit is really small so I can paint everywhere I want. last week I went to a museum and I painted old human skulls, and instincted birds. It was really fun and I will do this again soon, it is a great way to improve watercolor and study the models.

Also, in setember to october, I will start my oil painting courses in Montreal. I have brought a French Style Easel for painting outside landscapes and tweek them with a Fantasy flavor after in my studio. I can not wait to start learning how to paint with oil!

Imagines my black & white creatures painted with oil, they will become real nightmare.
