A dream painted grey

“Un sueño pintado de gris” (“A dream painted grey”) is a series of 20 graphite pencil drawings in 22×34 cm format. In the series I concentrate on the emotions that the music evokes in us. Onereic and pleasurable sensations which seem to plunge us into endless dreams.  Inspired by any sound whatsoever in, I sought the way to convey the great diversity of feelings that were produced when listening to a certain song.

Elías Tobares, 2011
