“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci ~
Jean-Pierre LeClercq is a traditional painter whose work is done using pencils, pastels, brushes and paint. He started painting in 2003 and currently his work includes romantic and symbolist elements in his realistically painted nude female figures. He no longer uses pastels, but almost exclusively creates oil paintings on canvas or wood panels.
You can find Jean-Pierre LeClercq paintings in private collections in France, the Netherlands, Germany and the United States.
In 2012, Jean-Pierre LeClercq was a finalist of the international contest Art Renewal Center show where over 2,100 works by over 800 artists were submitted.

Isn’t that just so beautiful how a little at time the whole canvas changes into a beautiful painting?

So I purposefully chose paintings that did not reveal lots of nudity because I didn’t want to offend anyone. If you want to see all his paintings, be sure to visit his website. Although there are many nude paintings, Jean-Pierre LeClercq has artfully and quite beautifully painted the women.
