When living in Belgium, a busy
professional life left me too little time
for artistic activities.
A few years ago, I retired in Scotland,
country of so many refreshing peaceful

Living in such a generous nature
stimulated my wish to go back to
drawing and painting as a main hobby,
trying to express and share with others
the beauty of our landscapes, our wild
nature and environment.
My Works
Lochletter Bridge, last stone bridge of the Glen, on Loch Meikle
Home made on my P.C. :
What is it ?
Nothing to do with the traditional commercial lithos,
even the so-called "limited edition". Giclée is from the
French word meaning "to squirt or spray". The Giclée
printing method is a high-resolution inkjet process,
the ink being sprayed directly onto the paper.
How ?
The original watercolour is first digitized and then printed
individually, by an inkjet printer, on a high "Artist" quality
rag paper, ("torchon"), the same as I use to paint the
original itself.
The process
is rather slow, making each "print" a unique
production, the closest match to an original watercolour,
even often difficult to tell the print from the original work.
