Will Be Away

I like to thank everybody who thought this blog is interesting, and was kind enough to follow, thank you also for all your kind and wonderful comments, I really do enjoy reading them and answering them.

I am so sorry that I hadn´t posted for some time, te truth is I have been and still is very busy, doing costumes and props for a play, adapted from a spanish playwright Calderon De La Barka ... called ... Life Is A Dream.

Usually it is not easy for me to paint while having all my energy directed towards creating designs for costumes...
I hope you will bear with me and forgive me if I didn´t post and painted as often as before, but this is only temporary for two more weeks ...

This painting has been done in my usual style , that is without the use of a preliminary sketch, I started with the shadows , being careful to get their outer shapes right and defining the lit side by painting the background negatively
15 by 11" arches 140lb rough W&N  wc paints

notice the negative painting and the shadows

             more details ... note the negative painting


  1. Lovely! Good luck with your play:) I know what you mean you are probably creatively drained after your work.
