Detail of my painting

ENG: Yesterday night was very special for me as I took part to the ROI Art Event Evening at the Mall Galleries, sponsored by Winsor & Newton. Non-associated artists had the privilege to paint for three hours alongside the ROI (Royal Institute of OilPainters) members from a selection of three models, while the public could observe us at close-distance. The environment was very friendly and inspiring, and it was such a privilege to be painting alongside wonderful and well-known painters from the Society. I was quite nervous in the beginning because I was challenging myself after a long three months period away from the brushes. I didn’t have the easy touch that I normally have when I am in full activity, but the pressure and the adrenaline came to help. A great news came, at the end of the available time for painting, as I was awarded the joint Second Prize for my portrait! Certainly a very good way to resume my painting activity.

ESP: La noche pasada fue muy especial para mi al tomar parte en el ROI Art Event Evening en la Mall Galleries, esponsorizada por Winsor & Newton. Pintores no asociados tuvimos el privilegio de pintar por tres horas junto a los miembros del Royal Institute of Oil Painters desde tres modelos a elegir, y delante de un público que nos observaba desde muy cerca. El ambiente era muy amigable e inspirador y fue un gran privilegio pintar junto a pintores muy conocidos y de mucho nivel. Estaba bastante nervioso en principio porque me retaba a hacer un retrato en tan solo tres horas, y después de un largo período de tres meses alejado de la pintura. No tenía la pincelada fácil como en los días de actividad regular, pero la presión y la adrenalina me ayudaron. Al caducar el tiempo disponible para pintar vino una noticia maravillosa, mi retrato había ganado el segundo premio compartido con otra artista! Fue la mejor manera de volver a la actividad pictórica.
