Monday 16th July 2018 – Cliffs of Moher

I painted several times some views of the Cliffs of Moher without ever seeing them in person until a couple of weeks ago. It was really interesting to capture the different natural aspects such as the wind, the sound of water, the depth of the greens. Breathing the air of that place helped me to grasp the infinite shades of the colors present. In this painting I rediscover the lived experience. I do not like photographic realism, but I wish […]

2018 Baia 10x10cm olio su tela

Monday 30th July 2018 – Irish Bay

In this very small 10x10cm painting I have depicted an Irish Bay.

In this period I am really drowning in these immense and deep colors. Happy monday and good […]

The cliff in the background, however, is nothing but a touch of wide spatulate of green above the blue, and nearby a tip of thicker white, which gives light to the waves. This second cliff in […]

Monday 3rd December 2018 – Melancholy

This Monday I present you a 2016 paper, depicting a green stretch of Irieland overlooking the ocean. To create movement in the expanse and bring out the shine of the green lawn I used tempera and oil pastels. The transparency of the water finds its maximum point in the central part of the work, where it appears as a breath of wind. I titled this opera “Melancholy” because it speaks of a beautiful memory, and a lived moment that was […]
