Indian Sculpture :: Sculpture indienne

Yesterday was my second watercolour class with a great teacher, Marc, and here is his BLOG if you would like to know a bit about him. This course takes place at SynStudio on St. Catherine street in Montreal, Québec, Canada. This is an amazing environment for a small group of people, around 10, where we are exploring new frontiers (for me anyway) in watercolour painting. The class is perfect, the people in the class are really nice and the carpooling is wonderful. So all in all, a very nice night. If any of you know the symbolism and the name of the statue that I painted, I would really appreciate your input… -) I just found out that they are from India -)_))

Mon deuxième cours d’aquarelles se tenait hier soir à SynStudio sur la rue Ste-Catherine à Montréal, Québec, Canada. Le prof est Marc, qui est excellent — voici son BLOG si ses oeuvres vous intéressent. Le cours est très intéressant et le talent du prof est impressionnant, les élèves sont supers et le co-voiturage parfait! Une très belle soirée, somme toute -) Si quelqu’un entre vous connaît la sculpture que j’ai peinte, j’aimerais avoir un peu plus d’infos — le symbolisme? Son nom? Il semble qu’elle soit des Indes…

Paper: Fabriano Artistico CP, 140 lbs, 11″ x 15″

    C’est une Apsara ou nymphe céleste, symbolisant le plaisir des sens et de l’esprit. Elles sont d’ailleurs censées connaître 64 manières d’éveiller les sens! On en trouve aussi beaucoup à Angkor Wat (Cambodge).
