This is a very old painting. Probably among the first ones that I ever made using inkjet photo paper. Back then the papers were made with a heavy coat of gel that helped the ink to penetrate the paper's surface and I used it to my advantage to create a textured finish on it. Today, the papers are more sophisticated and efficient and the final effects are quite different.
Title: Beso detras de la cerca (Kisses behind the fence)
Size: 13x19 inches
I created a unique process where I paint by hand directly into different types of blank photo papers, using water, color inks, and some other unconventional household chemicals. Mixing them creates physical reactions that are instantly registered in the paper. The result is a painting with so much sharpness, tonal gradation, depth of field, and flowing movement that resembles the work of Nature.
I don't use a camera, a digital printer, or any other form of reproduction. Each painting is one of a kind.
