Fontaine by Laurent Botella was awarded Outstanding Pastel in the July BoldBrush Painting Competition.
Fabulous transition from the surface of the paper that leads into the painting itself. The back-lit scene is phenomenal and accents the figure so exquisitely.
Born June 30, 1974 in Nantes. His apprenticeship began painting in 1989 in the workshop of Maïthé Rovino in Aussonne followed by a year at the Beaux Arts in Toulouse. The work was focused on oil painting and pastel. The work in charcoal and pencil has always been the basis of his work before and after school. Inspired by the impressionists and sketches of the great Italian masters, his painting is spontaneous and structured. The compositions and colors are studied in order to highlight the subject. The unfinished fund processing and light effects to direct the eye expressions, attitudes and emotions of the characters. Its purpose is to give an impression of life in his paintings.
