Another view.

During the visit of the PAINTING FESTIVAL of Magné, in the Green Venice, on SÉVRE NIORTAISE river bank, in the MARAIS POITEVIN, marsh of Poitou, a paradise of the painters and the photographers.

The festival orgnanized each year the 3rd weekend of July, is a contest of painting and drawing open to all painters. During 2 days, the participating painters, of all disciplines, must exclusively carry out a work on the territory of the commune. Only one signed and not framed work can be subjected to the appreciation of a jury, chaired by the guests of honor, composed international artists and partners. This festival, in first position in France for this kind of demonstration, accomodates 300 artists and 15000 visitors, and acquired a national and international recognition.

_ The SÈVRE-NIORTAISE river is a coastal river, which takes its source in the commune of Sepvret in the departement of Deux-Sèvres, close to Les Grandes-Fontaines hamlet, at 152 meters of altitude. It crosses Niort, then goes down in the MARAIS POITEVIN, marsh of Poitou, which it feeds, before throwing in the Atlantic Ocean in the Anse de l'Aiguillon, after a course of 158.1 km and the crossing of a catchment area of 3650 km², with a average flow of 44.4 m³/s. the Sèvre Niortaise and Sèvre-Nantaise rivers, gave their name to the department of Deux-Sèvres. Sèvre-Niortaise river description.

_ The MARAIS POITEVIN, Marsh of Poitou, old Gulf of Poitou, gulf of Pictons that sea occupied 8000 years ago, extends on the plains from the Vendée in north, the plain of Niort in Deux-Sèvres in the east and the plain of Aunis in Charente-Maritime in the south. The 95000 hectares of the Poitevin Marsh, were built by the marine currents and the alluvia brought by the rivers and rivers. Since the Neolithic era, the resources were exploited there. Salt, fishing, the breeding were developed there until the time Gallo Romaine. With the Middle Ages began from great work of draining and installation under the impulse of the abbeys, like benedictine abbey of Maillezais. They continued in particular under king Henri IV at the 17th century, and at the 19th century. It was necessary and it is still necessary, to contain the effects of the sea and to often evacuate surface waters of a marsh to the lower part of the open seas. On the whole thousands of kilometers of channels of all sizes, drains, ditches, conches, were dug.
The marshes are divided into two, the desiccated marshes of 47,000 hectares, and wet the marshes known as The Venice Verte of 29,000 hectares. 19000 hectares partially desiccated should be added.

Hello Joël,
They are indeed very colourful these canvases. Good point of view on the artist and his work. Good bright colours and exceptional clarity.

Bonjour Joël
Une très belle photo très nette avec ces tableaux colorés et le profil du peintre en pleine concentration.

Hello Joel,

Bonjour Joel

Le monsieur produit des HDR avec beaucoup de saturation dans les couleurs. Il capte toutefois très bien les mouvements de ses personnages et ses perspectives sont excellentes.Belle composition.



Hi Joel
this is wonderful. The colours and detailing here are just mesmerising and the composition just perfect. So much character and your picture is artistically creative too, with wonderful intersecting lines and shapes. Love it!

Regards - Brian.

de tres belles couleurs sur ces peintures...

un POV tres original qui nous met au coeur de "l'action"
bien vu et bien fait

Hi Joel
I love the totally candid nature of the shot, it makes me feel like I've had a chance to look at real situation there. A great shot of paintings on display as main subject and his very intense concentration caught unaware, is the strongest element that makes this picture works. The lighting is optimal and close to give the strong impact to let us fully focus on the subject. This is great Indeed. A very interesting piece of work well captured. Congrats.
Warm regards

Bonsoir Joël,

J'aime beaucoup le tableau de droite, avec ses teintes automnales et son quadrillage original ! Je n'ai qu'un petit regret, contrairement à une photo précédente, c'est de ne pas voir le peintre en plein travail, le pinceau à la main... mais sans doute que les tableaux étaient déjà achevés lorsque tu es arrivé !

Bonne soirée,


Bonsoir Joel,
Une belle scène bien capturée,superbes ces tableaux colorés.Bravo!

Hi Joel

Perfect framework and best composition, and also very fruitful color touch to the original one. Calm and moderate color / light management are so wonderful. Thanks for your sharing with best job and have a good day!

Bonjour Joel,
Looking over the painter's shoulders reveal two colorful paintings, and a bit from the third on display.
Vivid and very intriguing what he did: a reflection on water - like we, photographers yield to post.

Le monsieur utilise la mauve et la magenta sur chaque tableau. Ca cree le style personel, si c'est n'est pas le manque d'imagination.

Mais, toi, tu l'as bien vu. Merci et a bientot!


Hi Joel,

I really love this image it is wonderful - isn't the painter such a good artist - the colours of his work are fantastic & the clarity & sharpness of your photography has enhanced his work... two artists working together.
Well done it is a well captured moment.

Kindest regards,
