    Beautiful pieces! Just wondering how you photograph/upload your work? I want to start sharing my paintings on my blog but wondering what the best way to do it is?

    • thefrancofly said:

      Hey there, I scan everything and remove the watercolor paper texture in Photoshop. I’ve heard of many illustrators who photograph their work, but the Photoshop method is more controllable in my opinion. Good luck to you!

      • bondgirlgoestoheaven said:

        Ah I see no worries will try that, thanks!

    • thefrancofly said:

      Thank you kindly! Wishing you all the best from Paris.

    Great! We had something very similar in the US a few weeks ago! Please check out my blog at iveryarie.wordpress.com😊!

    • thefrancofly said:

      It was a very special day!

  10. Excellent! It is so hard to believe that the whole world rallied after we made the worst choice in US history for a president. Thank you everyone for supporting those of us who had no part in Trump’s election. Not all Americans are stupid boorish idiots.

    • thefrancofly said:

      It was a moving day sharing it in solidarity with people all over the world!

    • thefrancofly said:

      thank you kindly! I wanted to capture the special day it was. 🙂

      Thank you so much. I really appreciate it.

  11. Wow… I wish I could do all that with paint… Beautiful piece

    • thefrancofly said:

      Practice makes perfect! It’s the only way. 🙂

      • There has to be some talent involved for it to come out so well

    This is so incredible! A wonderful idea, and very well executed. 😀

    • thefrancofly said:

      Thanks so much! It was a historic moment that had to be remembered

  16. Beautiful!! I went to the Women’s March in Toronto and thought it was a powerful event.

    • thefrancofly said:

      It really was, wasn’t it?

    • thefrancofly said:

      It was a sign that read “Don’t grab my uterus”

      • I really don’t see the logic in that after all that is located in side a female. Even if one wanted to how would that even happen.

    • thefrancofly said:

      Thank you kindly!

  17. Powerful images, and powerful colours, to signify powerful emotions.

    • thefrancofly said:

      Thanks so much. It was a terrific day.

      • Glad to hear it went well. Thank you for reply.

    • thefrancofly said:
