My dear photographer friend Ximena Romero took these pictures at the Illustration and Painting Workshop we did in November of last year. As she said “I have never painted in my life” some very interesting and creative drawings and paintings came out during the weekend, which is a proof that we all have plenty of artistic blessings, its just about bringing them out!
You should have a look at her blog, peti-rojo.tumblr.com. It has beautiful inspirational things and photographs.
