“La Barca Rotta” (The broken boat), oil on linen, 114x162cm

This painting is the result of some sketches that I made several months ago, in December, when the initial idea was of a boat astray in the open sea, with no oars, perhaps in a misty atmosphere. After leaving this work aside for a long time, while I have been busy with other projects, it took a slightly different turn, although it keeps some of the spirit of the first sketch. I show you those first studies below.

ESPAÑOL:

Este cuadro es el resultado de unos bocetos que hice hace varios meses, en diciembre, cuando la idea inicial mostraba un barco a la deriva en el mar abierto, sin remos y en una atmósfera neblinosa. Tras haberlo dejado de lado, ocupado en otros proyectos, el cuadro al final se ha desarrollado en una imagen ligeramente distinta, que pero conserva el espíritu del primer boceto. Te muestro esos primeros bocetos debajo.

    Brilliant. What more is there to say.

    I love the way you have captured the light and the atmosphere.
