Winter afternoon at the lake. Tarde de invierno en el lago

The wonderful bright colors of the late Winter afternoon at the local lake. It had been raining the whole night and morning, then the sun was shining and the cold wind helped to achieve these textures.

Los colores maravillosos, brillantes, de una tarde de invierno en el lago local. Había estado lloviendo toda la noche y durante la mañana, luego el sol estuvo brillando y el viento frío colaboró para lograr estas texturas.

Rooster. Gallo.

One of my acrylics on canvas, small size. It has modeling past as medium to improve textures and thickness. The model is here
I love this model, I think this rooster has personality!

Old Locomotive. Locomotora antigua

 A model of a train, an old one from New York. this is a close up of the locomotive, it's inside an acrylic box next to a window. The dust on the box and the lighting gives it a sort of Surrealist effect.

This is a piece of fabric where I used to practice with my watercolors and acrylics. I've told many times how much frustration I had with the watercolors. I smashed the fabric, took a couple of pictures, and once uploaded in my PC took new screen pictures to add the texture of the flat screen and the deep black. Then I trashed it.

Nicobar pigeon. Paloma Nicobar

This acrylic was done inspired by Ivan Lesica's photo of a Nicobar pigeon. 
He has wonderful gallery and his pictures of pigeons are amazing.

Spiral. Espiral

I meant to paint acrylic on canvas with a knife, but it didn't result good. Lack of inspiration.... I scratched it, tried another one and didn't like it either. I was so upset that I began to pour the acrylics from the bottles directly on the canvas, with the background, and then put the canvas vertical, then rotated it a couple of times. 
I took a lot of pictures of details and then I scratched it all over, leaving a dark background for another painting. My family said I shouldn't have done this...

The light blue butterfly. La mariposa celeste.

 There's a cultural space about the jungle and rain forest for kids at the Santa Ana Zoo, California. In one of these rooms, there are glass tanks under very low light, with small simulations of the habitat inside. 

The picture below is not a motion picture, I took it with poor light and a low ISO on purpose, to get a kind of artistic digital painting. I used it as a model for acrylic or oil on canvas. Still practicing, I'm trying to learn from my own errors.

Red rose abstractions. Abstracciones de rosa roja

I made this pictures with a tiny Aluminum bag that had tea inside, just before trashing it. I thought it twice, why not taking a few shots and see if I could achieve interesting shapes, reflections and colors? 
I prepared a whole series and I'm not done yet, I am having a lot of fun with this bag. 
These ones have been taken with my cell phone, which has a red cover.

Pájaro en aparente simetría. Bird in apparent symmetry

A bird in apparent symmetry, or a ram? Maybe it´s an owl. Actually, it´s a fractal.

Non figurative colorful shots

I have got these shots using a Christmas plastic green bowl with some curls relief, inside it I put decorative feathers bought at the last year Gay Pride parade, so the feathers have the rainbow colors.
All pictures are in 80% high contrast.

Ellipses. Elipses

 One of my abstracts acrylics as seen through a new glass vase I have. The original painting has some colorful ellipses in a blueish background, I managed to leave one of them in focus. At least this acrylic was not trashed but "recreated".
