Travel sketchbooks

When travelling, Raphaèle Bernard-Bacot swaps her camera for her sketchbook.
She records her first impressions with a pen and watercolors.

Each region and country offers surprises which make them so attractive; the cheerful Chinese rural inhabitants, the beauty of Indian women, or the Mediterranean charm of Greece. The common links between all the places are her interest in the vegetable gardens and cultivation of fruits all over the world.

Her sketchbooks are the sources from which she creates her larger scales artwork such as her painting exhibited in Shangjin’s Museum in China.
