A devoted painter

I chose the artwork « Miroir » because I used colors I don’t often use and I painted it very spontaneously.
The subject of my works usually changes as I let my mood define the theme of my paintings. I transpose my initial idea on the canvas and change it as I paint.

"THAT'S WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS"

I create an atmosphere with little colors and a lot of transparency. That’s where the magic happens.
I don’t know if one day I will be able to say with certainty that I am done with an artwork; it is always hard for me to end it.  

characterized by his technique

In my technique, I play a lot with transparencies and texture.
I want my work to look like watercolors, a medium I used for a long time, along with a personal mixture that took me some time to create.
I start with dark colors without lingering on them for long, and then spend time on the details.
At first, I briefly draw on the canvas with a pencil, then add acrylic and end up with oil paint for its radiance and light properties. Sometimes, I enhance and structure my paintings with a pencil at the end of the process.
The little characters in my artworks are done using paint applied with a putty knife.
