1 Line drawing and free interpretation of the very well known painting from Diego Velazquez "Las Meninas". The 1 line drawing is then overlayed on a digitally modified photo from the Segura river in Murcia (Spain), close to the City Council. To make the image even more related to Murcia, I added two 1 line drawings: a "pastel de carne", a well known Murcian speciality and a "caña" (beer).
About the drawing technique: the 1 continuous line is a very innovative, experimental and rather difficult to execute technique, where the chosen tool (in this case an ink marker) creates an image with a single trace. The markers is not lifted at all until the picture is completed. The technical challenge of this technique is remarkable, as the artist’s hand is on the visual area for most of the execution time, and no corrections are allowed! Then, I add watercolor to enrich the image and add depth.
