In the studio

I only use the pure pigments of the dry pastels from Blockx and Sennelier (because of their high quality pigments), that I crush, smash and smear on the canvas, with my fingers and hands, kneeling on the floor. The multiple layers of colours end up in new combinations and new tints. Rhythm, harmony and textures are made of the contrasts between the colours and the force I put in the gestures and movements I make. I finish the painting with applying several coats of varnish (satin or gloss).
