Welcome to my Inner World.
I am a French self-taught artist, and these past twenty years I have made Norway my home. Moving to the Lofoten islands was the greatest present I ever made to myself and the Arctic landscapes are indeed a true treat for any artist’s eyes. I live with my British soulmate, my sweet Papillon girls, Lucy and Pixie and the spirit of my border collie, Loki. My creativity is a tribute to the eyes that blink in the heart of every smallest thing, the flowing dreams whose pulse tries to reach to us in our most meditative state.
Kundry Land, February 2013
Ladies and gentlemen, and others, let me introduce to you my favourite tools:
The two on the left are called colour shaper tools and I use them mostly for scraping the paint and blending the colours in some areas. But for blending, I use mostly the flat brush on the right.
I made a bad quality video of the doodling method with the “scraper”. First, I lay my colours down and then I shade them into each other with a brush in circular motion. I use Cobra oil paints which are diluted with water. They are FANTASTIC. A layer takes two days to dry (but a shorter time above a heat source) and after that, you can add more layers:
This is the first layer, I’m going to bring contrast.
I need more trees!
I need to secure them properly so they don’t fall over. There’ ll be many of them (mushrooms too, but felted or made of ceramic).
The dragon got himself a couple of trees, how cool is that? More photos coming.
