ABOUT MY ART
Like anyone who is looking at a painting, I like the painting that makes me feel emotions. In the time that I was a landscape painter, I was trying to feel as if I was in those places, feel the tranquility of the people in those villages, its light, colors, aromas, etc..
Lately I've felt more attracted to the emotions that gives me the human figure, especially his face. I have used a large format, for these last pictures, so I want to convey the idea of greatness of human being. On the other hand I attempt to capture an expression serene yet full of energy and a lively look in order to establish a link with the viewer.
Who watches whom? When time stand still, there is space for both.
This is a technique based on acrylic paint, applied with fillings and glazes. Also I use charcoal pencil and chalk oil-pastel, so it is a mixed media. As support I use canvas on frame when the picture is medium or large and table when it is small, both primed with gesso. Finally I apply a coat of bright varnish for acrylic-oil.
