A painter of land

Pastel is the art technique that has always fascinated to the painter Maribel Jimenez. At school age started using it, then uses it to paint portraits of his family and close friends. Intuition and visual analysis guide her work as a portraitist, at that time, compared to reason, does not follow a defined and particular technique. Her goal was to work very clean, using transparent colours to capture the facial features of the characters. All this is done though she never had a teacher guide in this pictorial genre. At that moment her dedication to painting was complete and made it her expression.
