Welcome to my gallery of paintings



    I love everything related to pirates and privateers, and to go even further I began to paint the Navy in oil.
It's funny: I hated the paintings until the day I went to visit the Musée d'Orsay in 1989 in Paris, which gave me a kick of inspiration, but not strong enough to paint. It took me to start playing Magic cards (Magic The Gathering) and enjoy the fabulous work of artists who painted the fantastic creatures and landscapes of these playing cards.

I started oil painting in December 2004 by reproducing a drawing of the comic "El Cazador" (see below). I named this painting "The Galleons of the Armada." I'll let you read reviews of their making:)
