Workshop Instructor: Marion Rivolier, Paris

Marion Rivolier is a scenographer (stage and set designer) and Fine Artist living and working in Paris, France. She is also responsible for the sketching program  at the École d’architecture de la ville et des territoires in Marne-la-Vallée. Her work includes public and private exhibit and theater design.

She received her degree in scenography in 2000 from the Ecole Nationale supérieure des arts Décoratifs in Paris.

For over ten years now, Marion has also been painting and drawing outdoors. She has long painted bodies in motion, so when facing a landscape, she looks for the same dynamic given by its colors, its light or the inhabitants of the place. She paints in a hurry as if the subject could disappear at any moment. Urban vistas, interior spaces or characters are captured without prior sketch by broad brush-strokes of colors. Watercolor is unforgiving but she loves being surprised by water over moist paper or a pigment that dilutes too quickly.

She contributes to the Urban Sketchers Paris blog and to the Urban Sketchers blog.
