About

Crossed passions

My name is Constance Tournier.  I am 20 years old and I am a student in Layout design at Ecole Boulle in Paris.

I am fond of design, architecture and art and I am really interested in drawing.

Indeed, I have been practicing it for a long time. I think it's basic knowledge.

During my free time, I often draw.

 

My friend, Augustin Reyé, is very fond of watchmaking. He asked me to draw his favorite watch : the Omega Speedmaster. I have never sketched a watch before.

I felt this drawing was more exciting than the others I made before.

Actually, this watch includes a lot of details that I enjoyed working on. 

I loved this experience and I repeated it.

When I draw, I use all my skills. I have developed them during the five years I spent at Ecole Boulle.

I learned bending sketch for three years in cabinetry specialized in chairs.  And I learned to layout maps for the  last two years. These two blended abilities helped me to create a watchmaking artwork.

All of my drawings are realized by graphite pencil which is perfect to portray steel.

I use different kind of pencils, with ten degrees of hardness. They help me to intensify contrasts. 

This work requires rigor and patience. I usually spend approximately 150 hours for one drawing.
