"I experimented first with texture, but then I wanted to find ways of intensifying it, to make paint look like water. That's how I came to use water colours on paper I've textured myself, and resin to simulate the gloss and fluidity of water. None of the varnishes I used would do it. I use a brush - sometimes I blend with my fingers - and I have a special technique to remove the bubbles.
