Watercolours are associated with surprises, created by mixing water with pigments, they demand spontaneity and rapidity of execution.
Coming from a family of artists, Elisabeth's passion since childhood has been for painting. In some of her earliest art, she used charcoal and blood-red colours but her preferred media was yet to be discovered. At the age of 18 Elisabeth bought her first box of watercolours and it opened her eyes. Even today this is the medium she chooses to express herself as an artist. "I love the transparency that watercolours create," says Elisabeth, "and I have always remained faithful to them as a media. They allow me to perfectly capture my subjects: the navy in Bassin d'Arcachon, nets in the Garonne, vine-covered slopes in St Emilion, urban scenes in Bordeaux…".
Originally from Gironde, Elisabeth Hoffmann produces bright watercolours by combining softness and precision, flow and movement, but also tranquillity and quietness. The artist also loves watercolours for their diverse and versitile applications. By means of grand compositions, this watercolour artist knows very well how to call into question the trivial format, often associated with the use of watercolours. Elisabeth's paintbrushes allow her to break free from this constraint, creating a veritable "feast for the eyes". Based in her studio in Sadirac, she paints the Bordeaux region and the beautiful vines stretching as far as the eye can see… Her inspirations, the vine, the Arcachon basin, Bordeaux or St Emilion let live bright or melted colors thanks to the delicate touch of watercolor
