New Painting, work in progress & Videoclip of Jardin Canario

More cactusueños on the way, started on a  new painting with transparent green toned ground color which will give good contrast with the skin tones later on. Laid the composition with dark brown and started to paint from top to bottom afterwards put the first coat of the sky with zinc white mixed with some green and pinkish tones. Landscape painted in three abstract wine red tones...Cactus and the figure is the next to paint now... I am taking pictures while on working on so you will see the development on this painting little by little.

Cactusueños 4, Oil on Canvas, 81 cm x 100 cm. (Work in progress)

Here is a videoclip of Jardin Canario, Gran Canaria. It's a beautiful botanical garden full of cactuses and many other plants. My inspirations for cactusueños paintings comes from this garden. More info at Wikipedia Enjoy it! Have a wonderful week.
