"Campina" (Countryside). Original Acrylic on Canvas, 20" x 16." (Click on image to enlarge)
In "Campina," Costa Rican artist Hernan Pérez Pérez depicts a panoramic view of the Costa Rican countryside, filling three-quarters of the canvas with sky, conveying a feeling of immensity and emphasizing the light sifting through the atmospheric phenomena of the clouds. This painting was created through the process called "pouring," and the finest details being executed with needle knives (estiletes de aguja in Spanish) and scrapers, never with a brush.
