My ArtVenture: Watercolor painting “Patricia Kaas”

in #steempresslast year (edited)



Hello dear Steemians,



Before starting my long weekend work I am off today and that was a reason for me to try to finish my panting.

Everything started on Weekend, when for breakfast my hubby switched on his favorite singer Patricia Kaas, she is a French singer with German ancestors, who speaks very well German and had performed years ago and my hubby that time managed to visit her live concert.





She has extraordinary voice, very special, rich in tones, she is a great performer and live singer. I love her songs too and first time I heard and saw her again it was back in 90’s I fell in love with her voice from the first tone. Every time when we listen to her songs I am telling my hubby that I am going to learn French language and he is just laughing, of course he knows that I have no time for that, but how it is usually said: Never say never!

This portrait I decided to do with watercolors, I am still learning using watercolor and enjoying it, I hope I will be better and more confident with time. It is usually so that I like to read my aims and this is one of my aim.


I hope you enjoy my painting as well as me :-)

Beautiful watercolour portrait of Patricia indeed !😊
...and you should definitely learn french ! well, some words can begin with her songs and just learn the lyrics for example 😉

Thank you Barbara, I agree I remember I printed some lyrics from her songs and of course then started to look for translation to know what they are about. That is the way to learn to have an interest and to dig into it.
