I was invited to the  “Embarquement Immédiat” festival, organized by the association Yourtes en scène in Saint leu (Reunion), July 28-30 2017.

Meeting with local sketchers, from France, Madagascar, Spain, Belgium…

Grande Anse beach remains a pleasant place where to draw.
The coconut palms form a graphic frame which contrasts with the horizon.

Guan Di chinese temple

Guan Di chinese temple

A beautiful moment spent at the Guan Di chinese temple in Saint-Pierre.

A safe haven in the city. Smells of incense.
Quite a lot of people over my shoulder, but I was able to move forward ! And especially met charming people.
