Brook Trout painted on SILK.

I am a tropical painter, my art is an intoxicating experience of vibrant colours and shimmering textures on silk. I have been living in Canada for the last twelve years and I am now on a journey to capture Canadian nature and landscapes on silk. I will be painting my subjects with a Caribbean eye perspective. To me, the whole world dances in light and colour. This brook trout could be in a crystal river in one of many rivers on the island of Dominica, but it's actually the Rouge River in Markham, Ontario.

Painting with Sexy  light and  texture on silk

When painting on silk there is a delicate balance of using the actual raw silk to act as white. This technique is quite like watercolour painting only with more colour saturation and bleeding ability.

Black creates elegance in your composition.

Black  creates  elegance in your  composition.

I find adding tiny sections of black in my compositions enhances all the other colours and make textures stand out. I see black as the absence of colour, it is the mystery quality of my work.

Painting on silk Jean-Baptiste Video

Painting on silk is so explosive by nature. Look closely and you will notice the dancing light flickering on the surface of the silk as the paint bleeds into every silk fibre. My whole intent is to capture just a tiny moment in time to remind you that life is beautiful, you just need to see with open eyes what has been given to by nature for free. Beauty is always present, but we simply take it for granted.
