Traveling means exploring unique landscapes and new horizons. Smelling a different atmosphere and scents, listening to – sometimes – unusual languages, discovering other ways of living…. To summarize it is feeding your curiosity! The genuine journal of the travelling painter gathers through the pages a sketch depicting the beauty of a place captured on the spot where it wasn’t expected, a sketch of a fugitive feeling in a crowded street, a fleeting and spontaneous emotion grasping you in front of a breath-taking panorama … But before knowing how to ‘do’, the traveling painter must know how to ‘see’: drawing is – in a short time and space – a snapshot of many sensations and impressions. It is also an illusion of the reality which implies further analysis but also a certain detachment from it.
I invite you to travel on an illustrative journey with Myriam Richelle. It is the work of an artist who loves to discover and share, but not only … Her travel diary isn’t just a collection of pretty postcards, but the expression of her sensitivity. She captures subtly and with a great understanding, light, space and movement. All themes are good: Lavaux’s inescapable landscape throughout the seasons as an anecdote, which stroke her. And don’t forget, a travel diary begins at the corner of the street just with a lady under an umbrella … No need to go too far !
