During my recent family holiday to the South of France, specifically the Côte d’Azur I came across this artist named Sylvie T. She is a local artist of Nice who primarily sketches the Nice landscape and it’s iconic french coastal architecture. Sylvie T. captures the beauty of the Nicean surroundings and its soft light by combining watercolour and sketch. She carefully orchestrates where these two mediums are used on her drawings to accurately portray the look and feel of Nice. Her paintings have an ‘unfinished’ appearance because of the way she splashes bits of colour on only parts of the her sketches whilst the rest is left in pencil. I bought some of her cards and bookmarks that I photographed.
For those of you who haven’t been to this part of France, Sylvie’s work does a great job of giving you a sense of what it looks like at least. It really is a beautiful city on the coast of France to visit for inspiration, relaxation and sightseeing.
