Annick Vallenet

Name: Annick Vallenet
Bio: Born in Nancy in 1954, Annick Vallenet currently lives in the French region of Poitou-Charente, in the departement of Vienne. She has been working in pastel for about ten years now.
In a recent post I mentioned the July painting festival in Magné. Well, Annick was a prizewinner in 2010, as well as in the Puybeliard street-painters competition in early June. Annick runs an art materials shop in Couhé (Arts and Deco, 57 Grand’Rue) where you can find Sennelier cheek by jowl with Schmincke, Girault, Derwent, Conté, Raphael etc.
Medium: Pastel
Subjects: Landscape; portraits
Style: Representational, in a loose painterly style.
Navigation: Main menu remains on top of screen. This website is powered by
Gallery: Click on Galeries for Cirque (circus) ; Croquis (sketches); Nouveau Paysages (recent landscapes); Nouveaux Portraits (recent portraits) ; Anciens Portraits (previous portraits ; Anciens Paysages (previous landscapes) ; Nature Morte (still life). One can navigate between galleries using a drop-down list.
Image View: Each gallery consists of a number of thumbnails; clicking on one of these enlarges it on a new webpage with the rest of the thumbnails running along underneath. There is no information on image size. Clicking on diaporama starts a slide show. There is a retour (back) button. Clicking on an enlarged image moves it on to the next in line. Right click for image download is not possible. (But there’s always the Prt Sc option.) The painting displayed here is the prizewinner at Magné.
