she, at the garden II & III

january sun appearing among the foliage of the garden, then its light making shapes among the shadows of the trees, as if asking to be painted.
that magic instants captured in the chip of a camera till now, when lights, shadows and shapes try to be, once again, in the illusion of a painting but keeping the remembrance of that moment.

another painting without a previous drawing, just zones of colours, i'm trying to leave details aside as much as i possibly can. this one is from a photo i took a few weeks ago.
feel free to leave any comments, thanks in advance! have a nice day.

selfportrait

selfportrait Originally uploaded by dibujandoarte
me in front of the mirror again. this time painting. i am more a drawer than a painter though this time i started without a previous drawing, not even with the brush. i just started filling spaces with painting and just that, tried to observe shapes with similar colours and values, though i used a strange palette, i mean not the real ones but with a grayish one. it's three in the morning now, i should take a better photo during the daylight i know, anyway... (acrylic on greyboard-about 25x40cm)

this afternoon, during the class... one student, who moved all the time but tried to capture the essential, later after the class i kept adding more pen to differentiate values

sketches after previous sketch

i did these at home, after the sketch i did during the class. in these two i added alcohol to the pen to wash it. in the first i added some more details, even after i washed. used a blue ballpen. in the second one i tried to keep as many details aside as i could.

in this one i used vine charcoal, a tortillon and a kneaded eraser to make some different values.

more sketches

some more sketches, though these are newer, from a couple of weeks ago, trying to make them more geometrical and with less details, i'd want them even simpler than these but it's difficult.

cleaning piles of papers i just found this old sketch i had made out of a drawing magazine photo, i guess i did it about 4 years ago. i see his eyes aren't lined either, apparently it's something i should put more attention as i did it too in my last selfportrait.
