gerbold d'annoville

My father learned to paint while he was a prisoner during the war.

Subsequently, very young, I accompanied him and unconsciously recorded everything he taught me when he painted the Cotentin seaside.

It was only at the age of 30, during a trip to Portugal with him, that I really started to draw.

My attraction for seascapes, the sea and its different colors every day, my passion for sailing and sand yachting, led me to draw seascapes more naturally.

 

When I draw on zinc, I collect old gutters that I flatten and on which I paint landscapes in acrylic and Indian ink: the background of the painting remains in its natural state, which gives the true color of the Normandy sky.
