French beauty 1910’s

This painting was inspired from a photo I came across while looking for some reference. I absolutely love this era, especially the make-up and the hairstyles and of course the fashion, and I adore the illustrations of French artists.
While I intend to share my work and paint something that people will like and appreciate , in this case I painted this painting for me. Yes I was a little selfish but oh well! Hope you’ll like it anyway :)

Sea cap beauties finally finished

After going back and painting and perfecting and trying to make the water look like water I think I can safely say that I am done painting this piece. It was very challenging but one that I knew I would throughly enjoy and I kept going back and adding more but I needed to know when to stop, I find sometimes that I am enjoying painting so much that I find it hard to let go of it – to stop. This was also the case with the “Sea cap beauties” but I am satisfied with the results!

New painting new year…

This painting is a huge challenge for me and I am more than willing to take it on. I am reproducing a painting from a photo that I absolutely love. The girls are stunning and I do not have any problems with the features as such – skin tones are a bit diffucult but the most challenging part that I am struggling with is the water. Trying to loosen up  my strokes but I keep finding myself zeroing in and trying to “perfect” it. I need to learn to let the brush guide me, rather than me guiding the brush…still learning 🙂

“Gracia” – giving thanks

hi everyone! I’ve been away for some time. Been busy studying, researching, painting, and the rest. Just when I thought that nothing was happening… BOOM! It’s all starting to happen! So much good so much positivity that I just wanted to send you all the good vibes! Most importantly today I sold one of my paintings “la hermosa de San Sebastian”, I am over joyed! Nothing more rewarding than someone loving my work, makes me want to paint more and just spread the love!

pin up girls have more fun!

I love the pin ups of the 50’s – and I love creating beautiful images of women. I decided to do a series of modern pin ups, using simple lines and curves to give them a feel of elegance and classy sex appeal, also I was inspired by some of the gorgeous ladies in the 007 Bond movies, so here’s a tribute to the sexy elegant pin up girls! Image

New exhibition at Catalina Cafe, El Born, Barcelona

Catalina cafe is one of my favourite joints in Barcelona and not because Rafa the owner has been amazing enough to let me exhibit in his cafe twice,  but also because Catalina is an excellent spot to take refuge from tourists who constantly crowd  the streets of el Born. Those who get sidetracked and stumble upon this gem are quite lucky – with great service, damn good food, a cool vibe and the perfect place to see  some awesome local art !
