View Full Version : Oviedo Street Scene
05-13-2003, 01:54 AM
Watercolor, 16x11 " aprox, in Arches 300 grm paper, from a pic I took in La Rua Street Oviedo, Spain...
well, I think my fight with handmade paper has paid the effort... when returning to Arches, I achieve more powerful colors and shadows, and more contrast too... I'm happy with this one.. what do you think??? All your comments and advice will very appreciate...
Thanks for your time

I like this very much Hector. I like the way you've used the white of the paper to show the brightly lit street. The buildings have lots of energy and adding the people brings the scene to life.
I would love to be sitting in that cafe and watching the people passing by.

Hector, a wonderful impressionist-style painting--very fresh. I think this is my absolute favorite of all your work that I have seen!
A very nice, energetic street scene, Hector
I like the way you suggest details without getting them "tight"
I'm really enjoying this series!

I agree with your assessment of how your painting has advanced. You definitely seem to be painting with "more powerful colors and shadows, and more contrast too" lately.
This is a very dynamic streetscene with wonderful strong lines in the buildings, terrific colors, and movement with the people in the street. Very nice painting.

Hector, this is very dramatic and full of life! Have you given up on the handmade paper, or decided to take a rest from it?

Hector! Thanks for share! (Thought I would say that first :) )
This is a most interesting piece! I love it but I am not sure why! Colors are nice - blacks are calligraphic - ....
I think it must be the tonal values that make it sing! I just like it dammit......

This is a nice painting!

Thank you very much for your kind comments...
no, I don't think about abandon the handmade paper, even with their "eating-color" problems, their texture and feeling is very peasant for me... I must work more a more to achieve the deep and powerful colors I want....
sure I will be able with all your support.. thanks..
