"Krus na Daan"

This was my friend E's favorite painting from the art gallery of The Ayala Museum which we visited last thursday. This 61x76 cm oil on canvas artwork by Renato Habulan was painted in 2007. He plays with light and shadow to produce a dramatic effect which transfixes the viewer.
The beautiful chiaroscuro of this painting highlights the graceful curves of the subjects and the the fluidity of the artist's fine strokes.
