Today, I present the first two videos of a series featuring the diversity of my works over the past few years.
For those of you following me for a while, you already know that I do not like to be limited to only one painting medium and that I have used acrylics, various kinds of inks, oil, gouache, watercolor, digital tools and more.
Each medium makes it possible to create effects that are impossible or difficult to do with others and possesses particular characteristics. This is one of the reasons I like to create with various mediums. However, to be honest with you, the main reason I often change medium is simply because I find the creative experience much more satisfying that way.
Versatility Against Boredom
I quickly get bored with the already seen and I hate the feeling of being stuck in one place. Some artists take pleasure in making repetitively, month after month, year after year, paintings of the same style in the almost identical way. I know they may sometimes feel pressure from collectors’ expectations or art galleries, but I confess I would not be able to do that. Boredom would be there very quickly, and I would lose all enthusiasm for painting.
Here are the first two videos from a series of 6 or so. The first one shows some of my colorful paintings made with alcohol inks and acrylic on Yupo paper and transparent polyester film (Dura-Lar), many of which evoke landscapes.
In the second video, you will see samples of my limited-edition art prints made from my digital art.
On the next blog posts, I will present you more videos showing artworks made in Indian ink and acrylic, as well as oil and cold wax paintings on polyester or wood. A large variety as you would be able to see!
I’m also working on a project I have in mind for a while. I would like to create a virtual tour of my art studio in video format but for technical reasons, I’m not sure if I will be able to complete the project. For most of you, it would be the only chance to visit my little art studio. So, I do my best to make the project viable. We’ll see!
Thanks for your visit and see you soon,
