Post 501-- An old ink drawing from 2008

today i found this drawing i did as an exercice for art school back in 2008 and thought i had uploaded it, but no, i had not.
i guess i was much more selective back then... so maybe i 'll start seaching for some old stuff that never pusblished. who knows?

anyway, i just saw in my blogger account that my last entry yesterday the 500th.! I started it back in march 2007 and has been a fun thing to do, even though there were times i didn't have anytime or anything to upload.

A draft made with an old & worn out marker, over a cardboard on which I had
pasted some pieces of newspaper. Later I applied temperas with a piece of
wood like a painter's knife. I chose cyan yellow and magenta, but only the
first is pure. Also used some white tempera. I added charcoal lines at the

little more of what could be called "surreal"?

​i really don't know what these could be, but i'm sure it's not even close

on a song while drawing, or a passer-by. nothing to do with dreams at all​.

Study of lights & shadows +Colours and compostion. I'm trying to see which
colours as a basis are better for the skin. I usually use just the 3
primary (CMY) + white. A little black to make different values of grey and
nothing else. In this case didn't use magenta but crimson, and ulttamarine
instead of cyan.

flowers in the beginning

     "[...] When i found that loose floor tile at the foot of my bed i saw some light coming out and obviously caught my attention.

Had i travelled back through time? I was at the same place but just before nothing was built. No houses, no people...
     I can only see a strong daylight that almost hurt my eyes standing frozen under the shadow of the house; there's just a lot of high grass all around and the flowers growing wild. I hear only silence, if silence can be heard. Lots of it. Not even the soft wind makes a noise or the plants moving with it. Been there more than once as far as I can remember. It's just nature growing fast, wild and free. [...]"
