Holm Oak I (Encinas)

"Whirpool muse" (portrait sketch)

This is a quick ink drawing with some acrylic paint I did recently for a friend of mine. I love to play with line thickness modulation. Sometimes I feel like building an abstract scaffolding that helps me support the realist drawing. This time I used the hair, and I tried to let the abstract shapes get a life of their own. The balance between real and abstract increases the chances of making an interesting drawing that you can watch over and over; something that usually you don´t get with traditional boring portraits.

"Back and lines" (ink on paper)

Lately I´ve been very busy, with no time to paint as much as I´d like to. But I was able to pull out some interesting ink drawings.

"Don Quijote" (ink on paper)

This started as a sketch for a painting commission, but ended up being a good finished drawing itself.
