Luis Caballero

I first saw the work of this artist in Bogota a few years ago. They were huge canvases, oils overlaying charcoal. Washes in oil. Amazing stuff. He's Colombian, but studied in Paris.

New Series

Ok, so here's one of the paintings in the new series I'm working on. It's an oil on canvas, 80" x 48". It's fun to revisit my passion for comics, that I've had ever since I was a kid. The comic work for this is from The Treasure of Tranicos, an original story by Robert E. Howard. Pencilled by John Buscema, inked by Klaus Janson. 
I sold this piece, and when I started, it was really just an experimental painting. I loved the way the mediums looked so I did a series. I'll have 6 paintings when I'm done.
