A scratchboard art surface with a different point of view.
A sun face with very purple swirls
Here is a new watercolor with very intense colors and mood. I did the basics of this piece when I was demonstrating for my class on layer painting in watercolor. The underpainting was done with inks in soft washes and I spread them on the wet paper with my fingers in a swirling motion. When it had dried in the sun is the point at which I gave the face its basic shape., The swirls of motion almost drew themselves. The many layers of dark purples and red are rich MaimiriBlu watercolors from Italy which are my favorites. This is a big painting and a powerful piece.
Here is the piece on Fine Art America.
Mexican Ancient Clay Mask
This Clay mask is from Teotihuacana, Mexico.
It depicts “Dios Viejo del Fuego”, Which was one of the oldest deity worshipped in the Basin of Mexico, known as Huehueteotl by his Náhuatl name.
200 BC – 800 A.D.
When I saw this face I just wanted to paint him. I love the animals in here and his expressions and also I chose a vibrant gold color because I felt he was rich and glowing.
Here he is on fine art america.
Palm Trees brilliant yellow watercolor
I love the palm trees for their majesty, their colors, their patterns. This watercolor has a lot of very intense color and the negative spaces are strong. This is one of my favorite color palettes.

Axolotl – the water monster
Axolotl means water monster among the Nahuatl tribe. It is possible to find this animal in the floating gardens of Xochimilco,a borough within Mexico City. However, there arefewer specimens that actually exist in the wild. Most water monsters now live in aquariums throughout the world. I is often called a salamander. They are usually 20 to 30 cm. long.
The most striking thing about the axootl is not only its appearance and the variety of colors it comes in, but the fact that it is able to regenerate its own cellular tissues. It can change its own colors. Due to water contamination and the use of this animal for medicinal purposes, there has been a huge decrease in its specimen count. It is almost extinct.
