Flowers, Glasswork and Pottery
One thing I love about Madrid is that explosion of color and light, suddenly, after a freezing cold winter.
The technique is resin-oil; the resin being ventian terpentine with other essential oils that I mix with natural historic pigments using a palette knife.
Wild flowers and glass is what I like most in still life especially reflected in the mirror.
Another resin-oil with that candied look to it. Poppies in transparent emerald-green glass is amazing to paint. I like the way the glass bends the light destoring the stems in the water.
These yellow and pink spring flowers vibrate against each other.
The Mixed Technique
Mixed technique refers to egg tempera and oil mixed in specific yet different ways to get a desired result.
The Deep Red Poppies and little wild flowers are so colorful and elegante.
contrasting with and complementing the red vintage glass bottle.
This is the tail end of spring. It was beautiful while it lasted.
This large pink Rose in a blue glass ewer is an egg tempera painting made by mixing pigments with an emulsion made with egg and other essential oils mixed with a palette knife.
One day there was a gigantic rose on my terrace so…
There is a white rose bush on the terrace. Sometimes I wait for them to bloom so I can paint them in one of my favorite glass vases.
I tried a new color to see how it would affect the look of the glass and the pink rose. The color and light effect is a bit different than usual.
The candelabra, the blue ewer vase and the Andalusian clay deep dish are my favorite objects. I like to adorn them with simple fruit.
The roses are from the terrace. When they start to bloom, I usually paint them. My grandmother left the vase in my care. It is an old Talvera vase.
I could paint them in differnt places all my life.
