Learn to paint Paris with watercolour

May 16 2024

See you on Tuesday May 28th at 11:00 UTC time on Instagram.

On our Instagram page, on May 28th at 11:00 UTC, take part in this free workshop, animated in live by Juliette Plisson, a famous French urban sketcher.

On Canson® Montval Art Book, Juliette Plisson invites you to paint Paris in watercolour, through a view of the iconic Eiffel Tower! She will teach us how to analyze and simplify the shapes, lines and colours of this building and how to choose our palette to magnify it. We will also focus on the environment to give life to our watercolour by suggesting trees, the city, the sky and clouds.
Duration of the course: 1 hour

More information on Instagram through your mobile phone.

  • Canson® Montval Art Book (300gsm)
  •  Lyra Graduate MangaPen (black water-resistant pens: 005, 05, 08 and Fine Brush)

Few words on Juliette

After years of working as an architect, Juliette decided to switch to painting. If she is not in her studio in Paris, you will find her with a brush in hand, immortalizing on the spot a seascape, a building facade, or a terrace crowded with coffee drinkers. As an early urban sketcher, she sublimates our daily lives with colorful prints.
