la belette rose


Portraits

HERE IS WHAT LA BELETTE ROSE IS MADE OF!

La belette rose began in 2009 with a focus on illustration, especially on objects at that time. We expanded into custom portraits, then invitations, wedding and birth stationery, and paper (or not !) products. All of those illustrated by myself, handrawn, often watercolored, on demand or personalized.Passionnate about drawing since my early age, I learned averything painting, watercolor, and graphics from my grandfather, great doctor but also sublime watercolourist .Curious and jack of all trades, I was a university professor , a publicist , a journalist, a designer. I lived in Rome, London and Paris. But often one returns to his first love and here I am, back with a pencil in the hand.My main inspiration for the littlePortraits is everyday little joys. It became therefore evident I would draw people loving each other! Parents and their children, lovers and newly weds… Those obvious proofs of shared love, all together evanescent and magical, I like to imagine them as bubbly and nostalgic, genuine but slightly punkish. And it is how I draw them.Therefore, in my little house in Bordeaux, I draw, write, make, knit and when I have some time left, I madly kiss the Beautiful Geek and VioletteCacahuète (but I make sure I always keep enough time for this ever so important activity).For the record, la belette rose is the sweet nickname my mother would give me while cuddling. It tastes like kisses and smell like Esthée Lauder White Linen! °°°°°°°°°°°°Interior decoration, objects, textile and graphic design in general, web or print.

HOW TO ORDER?

I draw by hand each and every Portrait.I love watercolor, each and every color: strong, soft, inbetween... and patterns too!To order your Portrait here, send me an email with:
- your favorite picture(s) in a good resolution.
- some directives on the colors you like or dislike,
- and the style you prefer.
For further explanations, keep on reading!

WHICH PORTRAIT ?

I draw from a photo (or several sometimes, but I do prefer when we find the PERFECT picture).So… you send me your favorite picture.
But it is important for it not to be blurry and in a good resolution
as i will only have this picture to represent the person, hence the the need of details.

WHICH COLORS ?

Tell me the colors you like or dislike…,
Perhaps the tones of the room the portraits will be in or the furnitures that will be around...
I wouldn’t like to use exactly the one you hate the most!

WHICH STYLE FOR YOUR PORTRAIT?

Watercolor: the illustration colors are sober, with a watercolor style and on a white background.
Nostalgy: the background is not white and the the watercolor style I had some colorful patterns.
ColorBlock : here the colors are brighter, stronger. The faces, arms etc. are skin tone .

ART PRINT & SIZE

You can choose from 3 different ways to receive your portrait:Portrait on a vintage book page (the formats vary according to the books I find, from 18x27 cm to 21x29 cm approximately; It is a unique work, a work using paint and artisanal impression then reworked with paint and dry pastels.Portrait with giclée print, this art technique is the perfect association of a classic watercolor transparent and delicate rendering and textured paper (Museum Etching Hahnemühle 350g/m2). It looks and feels like if it was painted on the paper and not printed. It is really beautiful and I love it!
You can choose from 4 sizes:
20x30 cm (7.87x11.81"), 30x40 cm (11.81x15.75"), 40x60 cm (15.75x23.62") et 60x90 cm (23.62x35.43").
Each art piece is signed by hand on its back.You can also choose a digital copy, that is a downloadable file for you to print near you a poster size A3 (11.69x16.54") max. However, here there is no hand signature, but a signature integrated into the design on the front.
