Jean-François Le Saint

Name: Jean-François Le Saint

Bio: No information available, other than he is 28 and lives in Morlaix; but he does chat about the paintings on Flickr, and on his blog.
Media: Pastel
Subjects: Portraits, figurative.
Style: Realistic.
Navigation: Website is in French and English, but there is no text to speak of. The main page has some thumbnails that when clicked open immediately in Flickr.
Gallery: Just two on the site: Portraits of boys; portraits of girls. These galleries contain about eight to ten hi-res images each. When clicked, they open in a Picasa gallery. This is an artist using the full resources of the web on his own site, Flickr, Picasa and eBay. Chapeau, M. Le Saint.
Image View: Each thumbnail when clicked opens on www.flickr.com. Once on Flickr you can navigate through his complete pastel set – and it is extensive. He also has a Disponibles (available) set.
