Sketchbook 2

Portrait Detail from a Painting. Above is a portrait detail culled from a larger oil painting. The subject is the same as the one in the portrait below this. What's interesting about this is, here she's unmade-up while in the other she was in a more formal prettied-up pose from a graduation photo. I like this better than the one below because it's a more accurate representation of the real person.

Portrait in a Painting. Above is an oil I made for a friend way back in 1997 for her birthday. Impressions I get from this painting are of me prepping the canvas in a roomful of turpentine fumes with the Wallflowers playing on the stereo; of my old, trustworthy but cool Wayfarer sunglasses, long gone by now.

Life Drawing Model 1. I was lucky enough to get invited to an afternoon of sketching sometime in October 2000 at the Cebu Academy of Art. My hosts were Cebuano painting greats Jorge Lao and Kimsoy Yap, among others. We had three models that afternoon and the one thing that really stuck to my mind was when I had to rush out in the middle of the sessions on my Virago 400 bike because I had to log out of the office before the university where I worked closed its gates. What a bummer! When I came back, I was told that this model (above) took her top off. Totally missed it!
