She starts with no sketches, no draft. She wants to keep the magic of the first attempt, with all its defects and the strength of the "single brush stroke." Colour comes afterwards; a reward, a gift, a joy!
Painting with oil gives her a feeling of gliding and a velvety texture. Watercolour allows her to obtain a purity of pigments and unique colours. Estelle has a natural and instinctive tendency to paint flowering trees and foliage. A small character in the middle of the vastness of nature is always present in her works. A witness or an actor in spite of himself, he represents man in general, tiny within the world around him. Estelle’s painting is a love song to Mother Nature. She reveals both the mystery of life and a way to happiness.
