Tiger beetle. Escarabajo tigre

My acrylic on canvas 16"x20". Based on a picture by Eduard Florin Niga, posted on

I had a lot of fun painting it, I did not follow the proportions exactly, my goal was to learn how to paint those insect hairs. I decided to spread the white acrylic without medium. The rest of the painting has two types of medium, thick matte and semi liquid glossy.

Abstract birds series. Serie de pájaros abstractos

These are details photos of one of my non figurative acrylic on canvas paintings, though at some point, part of it intended to be a bird, but resulted to be something else. I used a 100 mm lens, ISO 100 in a low natural light environment, that is why they look somehow blurred and more abstract. 
The original painting can be seen here

Estas son fotos de detalles de uno de mis acrílicos sobre tela no figurativo, aunque en cierto punto parte de esta pintura intentaba ser un pájaro, sin embargo resultó algo completamente distinto. Para las fotos usé un lente de 100 mm con ISO 100, en un ambiente de baja luz natural, es por ello que se ven como esfumadas, lo cual contribuye al efecto de abstracción.
La pintura original puede ser vista aquí

Abstractions in nature. Abstracciones en la naturaleza

Abstractions in nature, branches popping out of water after the Winter rains.

Ducks intersection. Intersección de patos

Ducks intersection in different water reflections, it is interesting to see how with their motion they are breaking the colors that are created by the trees nearby. The ducks are blended in the water, they can be barely seen.

Intersección de patos en diferentes reflejos en el agua, es interesante ver cómo con su movimiento rompen los colores que son creados por los árboles cercanos. Los patos están mimetizados en el agua, apenas pueden verse.

Some pictures of Marc Chagall's art

I'd like to share these non-edited pictures that I have taken in January 2015 at Los Angeles Art Show. I was delighted to see some of Chagall's works, he's one of my favorite artists. 
The colors may be distorted, and I used an old camera. I remember them brighter.
From wikipedia:

Marc Zakharovich Chagall (/ʃəˈɡɑːl/ shə-GAHL;[3][nb 1] 6 July [O.S. 24 June] 1887 – 28 March 1985) was a Russian-French artist.[1] An early modernist, he was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in virtually every artistic format, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints. Art critic Robert Hughes referred to Chagall as "the quintessential Jewish artist of the twentieth century" (though Chagall saw his work as "not the dream of one people but of all humanity"). According to art historian Michael J. Lewis, Chagall was considered to be "the last survivor of the first generation of European modernists". For decades, he "had also been respected as the world's preeminent Jewish artist". Using the medium of stained glass, he produced windows for the cathedrals of Reims and Metz, windows for the UN, and the Jerusalem Windows in Israel. He also did large-scale paintings, including part of the ceiling of the Paris Opéra.

Neo-cubist animal.

I'm having a sort of conflict with this acrylic on canvas because it was not intended to be an animal but a non-figurative with a geometric shape. But while I was advancing, the shape took a more organic pattern which I think it was due to the use of the knife. And somehow I saw a couple of  intertwined birds, then it ended up being a weird animal.
I told my associated, take a look, what do you think? I'm going to cover it completely. And he said, no, I like this "animal" and its neo-cubist spirit.
And I replied I didn't like the main structure too much, and he said, the eye is bothering you, let it be, a painting doesn't need to be based on a beautiful thing.
It was horizontal but he said it must be vertical with the eye in the far left corner.
And here it is, I'm not going to scratch it after all. At least not for now.

Deep in the hole. Profundo en el agujero.

These are photos depicting a hole. I´m taking it as an exercise of shapes and textures. I made them with a glass, with water inside, with low light. The glass was on a shell composed by pieces of Mother pearl.
I slighted moved the camera to create the cloudy effect, though it was already created with the low twilight. The shutters were open in a gloomy day.
Most probably I´ll take one of them as a model for an oil or acrylic painting.

Estas fotos muestran un agujero y las tomo como  un ejercicio de formas y texturas. Las hice con la ayuda de un vaso, conteniendo agua, en luz baja. El vaso se posaba sobre un caracol compuesto de piezas de  nácar. 
Apenas moví la cámara para crear el efecto de nubes, aunque ya estaba creado con la penumbra. Las persianas estaban abiertas en un día nublado.
Probablemente tome alguna de ellas como modelo para un óleo o pintura acrílica.
