Using colour.

Using your imagination is important when you are an artist and you love paint. I start a new painting with a scenario that motivates me to paint and after photographs so I will not forget any detail of shadows and lights which change with the passing of the hours. When I am at front of my canvas, I can imagine the details that get to my mind at the time adding to each of my paintings a personal touch that makes it different and makes it my own style.  
I can paint scenes from children playing, seniors holding hands walking together, a puppy running, a blue bird eating food or just a scene of trees with many shades of green and yellow.
The most important thing for me is the use of colours in my paintings, many of the scenes I painted are full of yellow, ochre and brown. I like to use bright colour and scenes with many details, full of lights and shadows.
The use of colour is important because it allows it to reflect our mood, happiness, sadness, concern, passion, nobility and we can even reflect our personality through the colours we choose. My paintings are always intense, reflecting the passion and I paint all of them with a lot of motivation. I can express through the bright colours of the intensity where I live, the joy of being able to convey my passion for art and other generations seal with a unique style.

I imagine...

One year ends and another one begins... the decorations, the Christmas tree and cards are stored in a box  and they will remain in our memories, now it is time to return to studying, learning and teaching. Our new purposes are fresh as lettuce, we are full of energy and the desire to learn and to do new things, our spirit is renewed with joy and we are encouraged to succeed, we are one anonymous hero, we are drawing our history and we are architects of building our future.
Just now, I'm at front of my canvas imagining a new master piece of art and I look through the window as if I'm trying to find the answer to a question ... then I look my art studio and my eyes return to my canvas, I begin by drawing with some lines in different directions, my strokes are soft and transparent, I imagine the sky... the sunset is red, orange, yellow, blue and grey then some trees that contrast with its shadow and the blooming green of the evergreens in the winter, I know this will be a great work of art;
something stops me and reminds me of that big, fat, black crow that I saw a few days ago and I think it should be in my painting, imagine it would be a good idea in one of the branches in the distance and without noticing I decide to include him to complete the drawings. Now, I imagine a ray of light between tree branches... so I decided to include it. It seems that the imagination of an artist is always wandering, creates new ideas and returns, this is art!
