and these are my jottings...


finished work: "man & divinity"

i finished this painting "man & divinity" before i left for manila last thursday however, i couldn't deliver it to its owner because the paint was still wet though i've applied the last stroke and left it to dry for over a day already.

i found this too soft, thus i touched it up with more glazes

you see, oil paintings can last centuries but they also take a long time to dry. Since i work with glazes when doing oils, i have to wait at least 24 hours before i can apply another layer of glazing. otherwise i lose both the depth and the vibrancy of colors.

the first stage of painting in brown and flesh tones

i'm flying to manila next week to deliver this, i hope my client likes it.
