The painting SUMMER (1) is an oil work on linen fabric mounted on a wooden frame of 130×162 cm. (100F).
To reinforce the oil appearance, powdered marble was added to the painting.
The title is not descriptive, but barely evocative and has been given afterwards because the colors of the painting may remind of a summer atmosphere.
The image source is located on a small photo published in a magazine, manipulated with wax crayons (water-soluble color bars “Neocolor II” Caran D’Ache) with the intention of turning it into an abstract mini-sketch (10×12 cm.)(2).  The final picture is an extension of this outline to which some changes have been added.

This work (1) evolves from a previous one, a collage (DIN-A3 paper. Size: 29,7×42 cm.)(2), which in turn comes from an ink drawing on paper (same size and made with a regular writing roller ball pen) representing an invented landscape with a slightly cubist style (3).
The first ink drawing has been photocopied on a previously stained watercolor paper. Then we have added the acrylic white spots and stuck some different papers. The picture is an extension of the work on paper.

The origin of the painting ARCHAEOLOGISTS (1) is a photograph from a magazine (2).  From this picture, three enlarged photocopies have been made on cardboard in sizes DIN-A4 (21×29,7 cm.)(3,4) and DIN-A3 (29,7×42 cm.)(5), and over it has been worked with acrylic. This way three variations has been achieved on the initial subject that have served as a starting point for final picture (especially the latter).
