Ever since his first painting, Brugeilles has believed that he must make everything himself -- make his stretchers, make the plaster and paste it on the canvas, and make his paint.
When he creates his paintings, he starts by making at least one drawing in sanguine and a pastel, watercolor, or engraving, and then finally a painting in oil. As he goes through this process, Brugeilles receives flashes of visions that inspire changes, so the images are usually somewhat different from the original drawings. He draws geometric forms (n'ombe d'or) on the canvas before painting for harmony in the composition of the painting.
