WATERCOLOR TULIPS




Image of the original painting



Final result.


I started a couple of days ago a watercolor flowers serie, probably 6 illustrations, the main purpose is to decorate our dinning room. Tulips is the first one and my first time making watercolor flowers, I choose Tulips because here in Iowa are very popular, and Im waiting for the next year Tulip festival.
The print is available at my etys store.

Here a awful video that I made painting (Im not good filming)...

BLUE JAY AND HEART (I)


















I love Blue Jays and definitely is one of my favorite birds, I made this illustration with watercolor and graphite of this beautiful bird standing on the heart with branches and few leaves (probably mine haha). I think is very representative, lot of feeling in it with this quote that I love "Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts." by the genius Albert Einstein

I think I can see on this illustration what I feel: NATURE.

This print is available on my ETSY shop.

TIME OUT



I had very abandoned my photography and more the surreal style, my desire to do this kind of pictures have always been but I have devoted my time to the visual arts. ( thats why this pictures is called "Out of time") I will never forsake surrealism in photography, drawing or painting.

Today I made this photograph and I feel like Im back...

If you were watching the behind the scenes you would not believe it. Improvised fabrics, furniture all over, the tripod above the coffee table, and my daughter supposedly helping me with photos and playing with cookie monster.

I hope to edit more :)
