Sa aking kaarawan, kasama sana kita
ngunit ang mga nakamaskara, kinuha ka
“Huwag mo siyang sasaktan, ako na lang”
ang huli mong hiyaw bago ka magpaalam
— isang likhang sining at maikling akda para mga magulang na lubus-lubusan ang pagmamahal sa kanilang mga anak

This is my first time that I painted tulips using acrylic on canvas! It’s a gift for a family friend this Christmas. The truth is, I don’t want to give it to them and put this drawing on my wall, instead. Wahehehe. So, this is my last drawing that I’ll post today. Advance Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, guys! :)
Our prof required us to create a self portrait using the painting techniques he taught us in a 18×24 canvas. The instruction is that, we should at least use 3 painting techniques and it’s much better if we can use all. The painting techniques are spotter, splat, blending, drip, mask, salt resist, wash, dry brush and water resist.
Me and my classmates talked about what we’re going to do with the painting. Many said they’ll use blending, and I said I won’t. But then, you really can never tell what will happen in the future, because I used it too. I thought about making it look like abstract but it was hard for me to do so and I don’t have my picture as a reference yet. And then I remember an old drawing I made a year ago. It’s a digital drawing and it’s only black and white. (below)
I decided to use this as a reference because most of the time, I take wacky pics of myself. It was hard to draw wakcy faces. lol. I can never be serious on cam. Smiling is love ♥
I was hesitant at first. Because I might not carbon copy the drawing. But still, I started drawing na. I created the border first, I used spotter technique. Then I drew the face, and then used the masking technique. Then drip on the hair.
I also asked my sister if she could take a picture of me while doing it. Glad she agreed. Hihi. And then after many hours of deciding what to do with the rest of it, using splatter and oil resist technique for the background, this is the result:
Tadaaaah! It doesn’t look like much as the reference but I think I achieve what I want to do. ;)
And oh, I use acrylic paint and oil pastel.
Last day, Friday, since I don’t have anything to do and it bores me to death, I decided to clean our room. It’s so messy I can’t stand it anymore especially our study table! (but do you believe that we never use it to study? Haha). After cleaning, and since I bought a new set of poster color, I painted the wall. The first plan was a whimsical tree and flowers but I changed my mind and I painted a shadow of a tree, a girl, and moon (since I am a Cancer and a child of the moon). Well I just hope that the color won’t fade since it’s only a poster color! Hihi
Because they were Roses and I was just a Dandelion.
It’s for a prelim activity, a whimsical Dandelions! Hihi. Tho I’m doubting If I will submit it or just post it on my bedroom wall and make another one. Waaaaaaaht???
Anyway worpy, sorry for neglecting you again. I just don’t have enough time to post somehing here. Maybe after prelims? I’m gonna post more fARTworks. Hihi.
