The creation of a painting by addition and subtraction of paint is a technique that I like very much and the mixture of oil paint, alkyd gel medium and cold wax is particularly well suited to this approach. Even if a thin layer of this mixture dries quickly compared to the oil paint only, I still have about 24 hours before it is dry to the touch.

In intuitive and experimental painting, you never know in which way the creative impulse is going to push us or come out from it. This is what makes all the interest of this type of approach. I think the hardest part is to leave the judgment aside to fully live the creative process. Here, the path is more important than the destination.read more

Here is another digital painting from my new series called “D’un souffle à l’autre.” (From a Breath to Another). As most of my digital paintings, it was created with the help of Corel Painter
Unlike my digital paintings of the last two years, this time my goal is not to play with effects of texture, but to explore geometric shapes and dynamic movements created by these shapes.
