Realistic Architectural Watercolor Paintings

00-Thierry-Duval-Realistic-Architectural-Watercolor-Paintings-www-designstack-co
A watercolour artist that that documents life in the city, in very realistic paintings.
The following is a kind of a mission statement from French artist Thierry Duval:  "I hope to be a sensitive and precise observer of nature and the city, attentive to account for the slightest variations of light. My watercolors of urban scenes restore the historical beauties of Paris or Venice, but also their unusual and mysterious sides."  We have showcased the work of this great artist before, here on DesignStack, a link to which, is just below.  I see this kind of art, as the next best thing to visiting the city or country yourself, or as way to learn about far away places, that you might want to visit some day.  Press the images to get a better look at them (not the first one).

  2. I am VERY curious about one thing, so I have this one question, How long did it take to create "The Barge and Saint Michael Bridge", and how many differentbrushes do you use. Its quite a breath taking piece of art. I am in awe.
