The Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid is a Research Institute belonging to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) since 1985 and has the singularity of being at the same time a Botanical Garden. In this project a series of paintings of small format of the Botanical Garden have been realized starting from natural notes taken during the months of September and November of 2015 and 2016. The series of pictures is centered in the capture of the light in different sections of the day as well as in the tonal variation of the garden throughout the months. 

 

The Oriental Club is a prestigious club headquartered in Stratford House (London). Through this project José Bautista will make a serie of copies (portraits of members of this prestigious club) recovering the complete figure because the original paintings were cut by for space criteria reasons and only the bust is preserved. For the portraits, José Bautista will study on site of the original paintings as well as photograhps that are preserved from them before being cut.
