Painting pink-purple Barcelona Flowers

The other day I've uploaded a video in YouTube with my latest flower painting after a photo taken this summer in Barcelona. If you follow me on Facebook, you've already saw the photo taken from the video I want to share with you below:

I've started to draw and paint after the photos taken this summer in Barcelona. The photo was taken at the Palau Reial in Barcelona. 

This is now finished just yet, I want to add some shine on it and I think golden paint will go very well over that vivid purple.

Journal girl - Messy face

Haven't been posting about my girls lately, but I've created a lot...and I've been doing some illustrations, too! Here is a girl a little bit different that what I was into until now, just trying different styles and techniques. Love ones more than others, but they are all fun to draw and color!

This face has a messy look 

I've started by adding some background. Painted red over some notebook leftovers I had and then cut them into pieces and created two hearts and some squares that I placed randomly onto the page.

Than started to actually paint the face with acrylics, free-handed and without too much care! Don't let yourself fooled, the acrylic used is not black, but a purple mixed with some leaf green, resulting a dark purple. I don't use black too much, it's too bold to me. 

I have to stop and remember myself to take more photos in the process instead of 'jumping' into the almost finished result. Next time!

A close-up

And the finished result. I should have played more with the background and add more colors, texture, stamps, etc., but for now I'm happy with her!

And here goes Romania

I don'y usually write about politics and all that "crap", but I've found that many young people "woke-up" to a not so good reality that we live in - one that has to change - and that that "crap" called politics concerns all of us. And that the laws they vote concerns us, our country, our land, our wealth. And what is even more upsetting is that young people died on December 1989 so that the governants that came after could steal our country and sell it piece by piece. 

The protests against Rosia Montana Project are far from an end. People are getting out of their homes and   fill the streets and boulevards of main cities of Romania.Here is a picture with the Unirii boulevard at night, filled with thousands of people protesting against gold mining using cyanide. Is this going to transform into a protest against the Romanian government, too? The people are also angry about the HUGE stray dogs number in Bucharest and other major cities, dogs that eaten alive a four-year-old boy in Bucharest. 
It's incredible what's happening in Romania. It's incredible how our Prime Minister, Victor Ponta, turned his position 180 degrees regarding to Rosia Montana Mining Project a few days ago. Despite the fact that, when in opposition, Victor Ponta said "no" to the project, on August 27 he declared his official support for the Rosia Montana. He now turned again and sent the project to the Parliament, so that he won't have to assume the responsability for the project!
