About Francisco Sanchez Salas

I was born in southern Spain and was brought up amongst almond and olive trees, guitars and watercolour paintings. The almond and olive trees cultivated by my father and me would bring in the income and in the evening he would play the guitar while my mother and I painted or sketched. So you could say that music and painting are in my blood. However, like a normal teenager I misspent my youth and decided to travel, earning a living busking on the street or selling the odd drawing, or indeed doing any job available. When I finally decided to settle down I was caught up in the rat race of commuting and office work, having little time for anything else. One day I stumbled upon a forgotten box that I kept in my garage. It contained drawings and paintings that I had done as a child, and they sparked in me the dormant urge to paint again. I decided to disregard financial pressures, leave the rat race and dedicate my time to do that which I love most, painting. So after a lot of ups and downs I came full circle. I never had any formal training. I just read books, visited exhibitions and museums and followed my own instinct.

Over the years I have developed my own styles in watercolours and oils. Depending on the subject that inspired me or the mood that I was in, I could spend months on a detailed painting with the most exquisite and delicate brushstrokes or I could produce several in one afternoon by means of bold strokes or impasto technique.

Regarding subject, Iím fascinated by windmills and trees, lighthouses and beaches, and perhaps because I come from a country where the sun is always shining, I just love city escapes and rainy days and the reflections that they produce. So they are my main source of inspiration.
