Christian Couteau was a marine who has travelled around the world twice before his retirement. As a former marine, this self-taught painter continued his love for water with his watercolor paintings. The colors of Couteau’s work are all expressive and vibrant.

Couteau describes his work,

The subjects I paint are recognizable because I speak rendered ‘paint’ and not photography quality. The color is the dominant part expressive in my creations …. I evolve into semi figurative suggestion taking precedence over reality.
