València vs India

Dibujo de una calle de la ciudad de Valencia realizada en tinta china sobre papel

I was drawing this drawing of Pintor Sorolla Street in the city of Valencia while listening to Miguel Noguera’s “Infrashow” podcast, a strangely recommended podcast (in Spanish).

In the reference photo it was a taxi in the middle of the street and I found it interesting to change it for a cow and thus be able to get an idea of what the city of Valencia would look like if we allowed the free movement of animals, as in India.

Conclusion: Yes to cows in cities.

Plagiarisms: Van Gogh´s Sunflowers

Lámina dibujo de los Girasoles de Van Gogh

When I went to the Van Gogh Museum, it coincided with a temporary exhibition that alternated paintings of the Dutch artist with Japanese ukiyo-e artists that could have influenced his way of understanding art.
The idea was interesting but in practice I discovered that the Japanese were very, very, very good and Van Gogh, on the other hand, when compared to them, was like a mere sundays artist.

Fallen like this the myth I decided to make to version of one of his best known series, the sunflowers. This image I show here is an almost finished version.
