Imagined Dream Paintings

Acrylic on canvas, 2011

A series of paintings that were part of my creative process while trying to find my style.

These paintings are not illustrations in the sense that they are not representing any story. However, I’m posting them here in case a similar style is needed for illustration.

About the creative process: I was trying to explore movement. I started by drawing all kinds of things that resembled movement, and found out that the horses were an ideal subject to explore it.
I also searched for intriguing elements, such as dresses and children and made compositions in order to discover how to do it.
After this I started exploring dancers, as you may see in another project.
They were done for a solo exhibition.
