Hello, 

and welcome on this page illustrating some of my art works using mixed techniques. On each data sheet are the informations pertaining to the illustrated art work (title, technique, size, date and location where the painting has been made) as well as a short text (in French) describing the story behind the creation of the art work. A red dot on the sheet indicates that the art wok has already been sold or is unavailable for sale. Sorry! Otherwise, you simply need to contact me (go to the web pages To buy a work of art”, To reach me and To leave me a message”) if a particular work of art is of interest to you. To consult a  data sheet, simply click on it. It can be enlarged further by cliking on the small icon at the bottom of the file. Recently, I had fun exploring a new technique based on an emulsion involving egg, oil, acetone and white spirit. I used a waxed cardboard as a substrate. The wax film on the substrate allows the emulsion to generate fascinating colorful textures with interesting transparency effects.   You will find below some of the outcomes showing us some abstract and mysterious universes, which would fit well with the litterary works of Charles Beaudelaire, Edgar Allan Poe ou William Blake.

Recently, I have made some tests using jointly oil pastels and watercolor with their respective solvent on watercolor paper. I first made a rough sketched using a black oil pastel, which I rubbed with a brush. The end effect is similar to charcoal drawing, but with the advantage that it is automatically fixed. I then highlighted the drawing with some watercolors.  Below is one example.
