El Albanico 78x96cm is an oil painting on canvas on board. Painting made in 2016 as part of a solo exhibition in the southern Spanish town of Nerja in December 2016. This is part of a series of paintings of flamenco dancers. Made with brushes and pallet knife and I also included a little bit of glitter giving it a special shine when you look at it from a certain angle. The energy I wanted to give the painting is vibrant even though the dancer is contemplating and looking away, optimistic yet intense through the combination of colours. I love the power of the colour red which I use dominantly in many of my paintings and certainly in ‘El Albanico’.
