From far away by lillo

Something which has been lost nowadays, the emotion transmitted by a handwritten letter.
Original: watercolor, color pencils and pastels on Fabriano 300gr paper. 24X18cm

I am a Spanish illustrator and painter and I have worked as a graphic designer for many years.
I often discover my inspiration in some dream, or a fleeting impression lost in my memory.
My work has also been much connected to the written word, and the rich and suggestive world of tales and stories.
I am specially attracted to portraying human beings, with an emphasis on character and attitude, and their relationship to their surroundings.

    WOWOW~!!!! Sensational artwork … love the hair merging into the golden glow behind the figure … the woman’s concentration on the letter from far away … she looks rather disdainful, not pleased with whatever the news is anyway … :))

    These textures, the golden light, transparency….amazing and so, so beautiful….

  • You’re right. The casual beauty of the textures are unique. Should be exploited.
