"I’m always working on the same thin, tight canvas. This canvas is my support and will carry the light of the painting. By monochromic strokes and friction, I bring up the subject. Slowly pushing the contrasts I reveal the materials of the landscape to understand its structure. When I do not understand it I invent it. By detail the whole painting is drawn."
