My first baby-steps in the blog and the real reasons for the existence of the Universe

So here we are and probably you wonder "what the heck is Pintador?". Actually,   it is a contraption from two spanish words : pintor (painter) and toreador (bull fighter). Let's just say that this parallels my views of art.

I'm not entirely sure how I will organize this blog (I guess, I will be learning as I go), but my initial idea is to organize my art by subjects :

I work with traditional art on canvas (acrylics and oils) and in the digital realm. Sometimes, I start in one to finish with the other. I welcome with great pleasure any constructive critique and I'm open to discussions and advices (en français, in English, en español, po polsku). On the other hand, I can't stand "bitching" just because you don't like my titles or you don't understand my art-rendered critiques.

So, my blog is now officially open. With time, I will be adding new paintings, some techniques I find useful when working digitally, either in Corel Painter or Corel Draw, and links to interesting Web pages on different subjects.
