New try, new failure...

The water color background is not bad but the layout of the text is ugly, not to mention the script which is very badly done.

Anyway, I got another idea, more news soon ...

paint pot

Sometimes, the best picture one can take is the one of the pots containing the paint or ink and definitely not what was done with it.

the opening

Welcome on this new blog !
I've been asked so many times to create an english version of my existing blog on calligraphy that I decided to create a brand new blog, disconnected from the first one.

This blog will be about calligraphy of course (and I'll try to post all my old stuff from the other blog in here, once translated) but not only.
As some of you may already know, I'm also very interested in photography and this virtual workshop will handle some of my pics among any other subject that I may found interesting to share with you.

As for a start, here is one of my latest pics (nonetheless related to calligraphy) : the reflection of the roof in fresh varnish.
