Colour Sketches



Two colour sketches from 1967 drawn while kicking around an idea for a Children's Book.


Dos bocetos en color de 1967 hechos mientras le daba vueltas a una idea a un libro para chicos.

omitiendo las insalvables distancias, me hace acordar a esa parte de la odiosa novicia rebelde de mi infancia,una parte cuando van al zoo, y están los deshoyinadores, los paraguaas y los cosos esos con propaganda que hiciste ahí atrás...
genial Oscar, el color...genial.
Ah, buenísimo el cambio de look a lo de Caro!

I love it that you're secure enough with your art to show the struggle as well as the victories.

Thanks, Oscar.

These are great! What did you use? And did the story ever finish?

Tha. FB. It was gouache. No, I seldom finish what I've started. I like to play at being the artist rather than being one.

Hermoso. Supongo que Alma Larroca habla de "Mi amigo Gregorio", que fué mi libro de lectura de primer grado en 1971.
¿No lo habrá dibujado usted, por casualidad?
