Preliminary : Organise many sessions of painting ; take advantage of the observation of the works of painters to enrich the technical repertory.

Choose the picture of a garden. Spot the various grounds which make up the landscape.

Place the image under a Perspex plate. Placer l’image sous une plaque d’altuglas. Paint in successive layers, starting with the foreground ; end up with the background ; let each layer dry before moving on to the next.



Develop an interest in « fixed under glass » art as practiced in Africa. Create other works based on new themes.


It will deal with the ability to
