Picasso Net News

Mirta Benavente - Atrapado en SueñosToday I received the December e-news from Spanish arts website PicassoNet.com - unfortunate name - showing samples of work by its newly joined artists. I noticed this intriguing thumbnail of a piece by Mirta Benavente: Atrapado en Sueños. Painting? Relief sculpture? Metal engraving? I visited Mirta's website page (title link) to find out. The answer: "mixed techniques". So I'm none the wiser. Oh well.

Hola, Mirta
For my English readers (and me) here's the Babel Fish translation of your message:

"Hello Coxsoft, I am the Catched author of in Sueños and I write you for contarte that is a painting (tecnica Mixed) that is based on acrilico, dust of marmol, guesso and vinilica tail. I send a greeting to you. Mirta Benavente."

Thank you for the explanation. In English, "tecnica Mixta" = Mixed Media. Painting translated correctly; "acrilico" = acrylic, "guesso" = gesso, a type of ground. The other media have me completely fogged. They sound like ingredients the three witches in Shakespeare's Macbeth might have put into their cauldron! At a guess you sprinkled dust or sand on the wet painting to give it texture. Anyway, it's a painting using mixed media. Thanks again.

Babel Fish:
Gracias por la explicación. En inglés, el "tecnica se mezcló" = mezcló medios (Mixed Media). Pintura traducida correctamente; "acrilico" = acrylic, "guesso" = gesso, un tipo de tierra. Los otros medios me tienen empañado totalmente. ¡Suenan como los ingredientes que las tres brujas en Macbeth de Shakespeare pudieron haber puesto en su caldera! En una conjetura usted asperjó el polvo o la arena en la pintura mojada para darle textura. De todas formas, es una pintura usando medios mezclados. Gracias otra vez.
