Two birds – one stone

L'Art de L'Aquarelle
L’Art de L’Aquarelle

When I went to visit fellow One Hundred Wash artist, Olivia Quintin last year, she introduced me to the joys of L’Art de l’Aquarelle – a magazine which features the work of world-class watercolours. Olivia was one of the interviewed artists in an edition last year.

I was so bowled over by the paintings in the magazine and the inspiration of seeing such high quality work, that I asked for a subscription for Christmas. I was delighted last week when the first of my four editions arrived.  I hadn’t realised that this beautiful publication is also available in English, so I am receiving the French version. But given that I’ve been trying to improve my French to the point where I can hold a conversation with Olivia and Alain when they visit us in August – it’s dictionary-at-the-ready and I’m loving every page, even if it does take a while to read.

  1. I also get a watercolor magazine but I’m not sure if it is the English version of this one or a completely different magazine (Watercolor Artist). I believe it is 6 issues per year on mine so must be different. Fun though!!

    1. I’ve had the digital subscription to that one, Sherry. It’s lovely and I may take it again some time.

  2. I’ve just borrowed Issue No 9 in English from a friend. Fanatastic magazine. It is more in depth than our English versions. It talks about inspiration and techniques more than just about the artist themselves. Fab for student artists who want to know what makes our inspirational artists tick. Definitely thumbs up from me.

    1. I get the SAA magazine, The Artist and occassionally go and buy Artists & Illustrators so I have a lot to read anyway (in limited reading time) – but I just fell in love with this one. It’s so beautifully done, isn’t it, Laura?
