Ritmo y Movimiento

My plans for this painting was to cover it up and start a new one but the teacher at the Bellas Artes Institute asked me not to and to please include it with my work for the Bellas Artes Institute exhibit on May 7th. It looked so violent to me when I finished it, but I have decided to let it be and wait for the comments on it at the exhibit.

This was a fun painting that started with a completely different idea but the painting took me to the final result and I actually ended up pretty pleased. Something a little different, although I also see that the bottom half works well as a painting on its own.

Deep Water Blues

I had mentioned in a comment that there is one of my paintings that to me looks quite aggressive for my liking. This one isn't it, I still have to bring that one back from the Institute to take pictures of it.

The show will be on May 2nd and I have quite a few now, so I will work on varnishing, framing and signing them. After this show I would like to try a series of abstracts with a lot more glazing, very few shapes but quite a bit more texture. I have also been trying my hand on wc paper using watercolors, inks and different texturing effects. There is so much I would love to do, but just not enough time.

Two new ones

I finished these last two recently for the upcoming show, although I am still working on more so I don't quite know which six I will choose yet, of those I have finished. These seem to be almost the same color palette but my last ones are quite different.
