Here’s a selection of the lovely dreamy ladies by French painter Carine Bouvard. I’m a big fan of all of her amazing soft-colored portraits. Sad at times, but always elegant and sweet. And although her style varies, what the girls in her paintings have in common is that they all seem to be lost their own beautiful thoughts.. J’adore! Carine has been painting for ten years and started working as a full-time artist in 2008. In her works she uses several techniques including oil painting, drawing, printmaking and acrylic.
