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.

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!

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.

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...

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.

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.
