… and more old excersises


This painting is an encaustic on wood work. I chose a fragment of a painting by Klimt. The first step was silver gilding the wood and treat it with acid so it will get this strange shade. Afterwards I painted it with a mix of pigments and wax, which has to be applied after heating or it will solidify before painting.

As you can guess my teacher wasn´t very pleased with this one either 😜

Este es un cuadro a la encaústica sobre metal, la técnica de los cuadros de Klimt. Lo primero fue platear la tabla y luego aplicar ácido para crear efectos irisados. El motivo de pinta a la encaústica, es decir, con pigmentos aglutinados con cera
Otro motivo que no gustó mucho a mi profesora, jeje!


Medusa or The Furious wave. It´s a canvas painted with gouache and pastels. It was the time for Degas or Renoir, but I remembered this painteing I saw in the D’Orsay museum and couldn’t help but trying…

Medusa o La Ola Enfurecida, pastel sobre lienzo. Este era el momento de pintar cuadros de Degas o Renoir, pero me acordé de este cuadro que vi en el D’Orsay y me pareció mucho más inspirador…




Senecio. Caseine temple  on wood. Caseine has a lot of strength as an adhesive, so it works great when you want to use sand or something like that on wood or canvas in order to create textures.

Senecio. Temple de caseína sobre tabla. El temple de caseína es muy fuerte, por eso permite pintar cuadros matéricos, con grava, arena y otros materiales para aplicar distinta texturas.



Franz Marc’s blue horses. In this case we had to use papel as paint layers. The more papers you glue one over the other, the more intense color you get. This cannot be considered as painting but it’s a very interesting and fun technique to try.

Los caballos azules de Franz Marc pintados con papel pegado sobre lienzo. La idea de esta técnica es crear colores más o menos intensos superponiendo capas de papel de seda como si fueran veladuras de pintura. Una técnica bastante divertida 🙂
