I already done the portrait of John, I had an interesting and disappointed story about the same, went I finished the painting, I call for John come to see the finished work , I wanna him to be the first to see the final piece. He love the work but he hate the red colour and I painted his suspenders in red, because the ones he had it was black. He said he can live with that, I promise to change soon as possible, the problem it’s, which colour?
All my time it’s around the portrait, I know I can’t do much more, the deadline it’s this friday….I’m trying to retouch some details.
I’m quite annoyed for can’t go Italy study, but in my life nothing been made at first attempt, so I need to try again. I hope my last sickness and the bad news about Italy are not showing in my painting, I don’t want any negativeness in my work. I try to used warm colors for give me some comfort went I look it.
I been enjoying so much my books of images and thoughts that I decided to do some paintings related to that. I think my books need to improve, but it’s only for me so I don’t really care.
This painting it will be a mix of figurative painting with some scribbles, it’s an experience…. but we never know.
Last days I only saw the portrait of John, I been work between 6 a 9 hours a day on this painting, at the end the day my eyes are burning and I need a rest… the concentration it’s massive. After finished the day I normally seat for a couple of hours trying take decisions for the next section and find mistakes on painting… and believe me… I always found some.This photo been taken later in the night… the quality it’s not good, but the reason it only for the details can’t be seen.(size 90x65cm)
I took also a photo of a pickle jar and have the idea to make paintings of different subjects and objects but all inside jars… It will be relate to my biggest concern the psychological distance and the physical approach.
