Friday, Art & Poetry: Omnia Caelum Studios Valencia for Collectors

(Original artworks by FBC, Omnia Caelum Studios Valencia)

Painting, at least this type of painting that I do, rather abstract, a bit expressionistic and very figurative, begins in the head…

Days before I put a drop of well mixed, highly thought of paint, creating the initial colour from which to develop a theme, a composition, the reference had fully developed in my imagination, i.e. in my head…

The development of the painting then proceeds, either extremely fast, or slowly, taking days or weeks. It all depends on how clear the reference is, because at times it can sort of hide from the view of the mind’s eye…

But once the message is clear, the theme is fully developed, and the first few bars…in comparison…are played, in this case painted, the process of improvisation takes over…

Finally, after the principal element, or elements, of the composition have guided my hand to the last corner of the canvas, I can say the painting is finished.

Then it sits, well lit at all times, in a corner of my studio until it “talks” to me to tell me that it’s over…the Jazz song’s been played, the rhythm was outstanding and the improvisation has resulted in a finished product. Then I take it down, varnish it for further protection and place it in my gallery. It is now ready to be sold to a collector…

The three paintings above are all from the 2019 “JaZzArT en Valencia” collection that I’ve decided to offer for sale to collectors. They are all done with acrylics on canvas. The middle one…square one…is 60 cm x 60 cm x 2,5 cm. The other two are 40 cm x 60 cm x 2,5 cm.

Inquiries are attended to immediately. Contact Omnia Caelum Studios Valencia via my Instagram: @Francisco_Bravo_Cabrera

      Thank you Margaret! Sometimes people may not realise that a lot of painting goes on in the head, especially if you are not a portrait or landscape painter…take good care and all the best,

    I love this post, your approach to painting abstracts is different than mine, so very interesting to learn of your process!

      Thank you Tiffany, I really appreciate your reply. Yes, we all follow different approaches trying to get to what we want to communicate. Take good care and all the best,

    I love your honesty. Thank you for sharing your methods—it’s the same with writing, waiting for the ideas to develop and speak. I’m also very glad you mentioned ‘time’ because I have paintings that have almost created themselves in just a few hours and then ones I’ve been fighting with for years! 🤍

      Thank you! Yes, that is so true, some paintings, some poems, some stories, just develop themselves and others take a long time and much effort. It’s like childbirth I would think.
