Claude Carretta

CarrettaA lover of drawing, I discovered watercolor in 1990 and I gradually developped a passion for the colors’game and the freedom with which the water disperses pigments and creates unexpected effects.

I’m looking mostly for atmospheres, highlighted in the first stage of creation, then, I give rise to the light in its full force by opposition with contrasts.

I strive to paint a range of topics to suit my interests: flowers, autumn leaves, rural and urban landscapes or marine themes.

I worked with the Belgian-Canadian master Roland Palmaerts, who appointed me MAITRE PALM’ARTS in May 2010.

I was also president (2006-2011) of the association Aquarelle Reims Evénement that works to promote watercolor by regular international exhibitions in REIMS, chief town of CHAMPAGNE.
