For the paintings mainly polystyrene and plaster for the oldest. Acrylic paint is used and then a varnish depending on the surface.
For the paintings sculpted in polystyrene, Didier Bécet drew his ideas on a sketchbook and then retranscribed the idea of the final painting on transparent paper, which was projected onto a block of polystyrene and then sculpted.
Once the sculpture was on the canvas, the work was painted and then varnished.
Approximately 150 Paintings and 50 Sculptures.
We use photogrammetry, a process that consists of taking photos from different points of view around an object, then extracting the data through algorithms to create a precise 3D model.

We currently use a Sony A7RII with a 35mm fixed lens.
We calibrate the photos of each painting using a color checker.
Each "web" model weighs less than 5mb, between 10mb and 15mb for the "best" model of the gallery. Composed of 50.000 triangles and using a single 4k or 8k texture.
Keeping baked lighting allows us to make a model photorealistic using only one texture. We avoid models with complex and heavy textures and materials for a web display.
