Answer

There are indeed a few references that García Lorca (1898-1936) had made paintings. However, the Grove Art Online -database only mentions him being a draughtsman besides a writer. According to Grove Art the drawings are "executed in pen and ink or coloured pencil". The outcome of our search was similar: There seems to be no paintings.

There are at least two books that deal with García Lorcas drawings:
H. Oppenheimer: Lorca: The Drawings: their relation to the poet's life and work (London: The Herbert Press, 1986)
Dibujos de Federico García Lorca (exh. cat. by M. Zambrano and M. Hernández, Paris, Cent. Lang. Cult. Espagne, 1990) [Sp. and Fr. text]

We also found a few images of his drawings from the internet:
