Cesar Torrente Legaspi (April 2, 1917 – April 7, 1994)
Cesar Torrente Legaspi was a Filipino National Artist in painting. He was also an art director prior to going full-time in his visual art practice in the 1960s. His early (1940s–1960s) works, alongside those of peer, Hernando Ocampo are described as depictions of anguish and dehumanization of beggars and laborers in the city. These include Man and Woman (alternatively known as Beggars) and Gadgets. Primarily because of this early period, critics have further cited Legaspi's having "reconstituted" in his paintings "cubism's, geometric ordering of figures into a social expressionism rendered by interacting forms filled with rhythmic movement". #arthistory #art #DOMSartmaterials #artph

Victorio C. Edades (December 23, 1895 – March 7, 1985)
He led the revolutionary Thirteen Moderns, who engaged their classical compatriots in heated debate over the nature and function of art. His introduction to modern ideas into the Philippine art scene, managed to destroy the conventions of domestic art, and also got rid of the clichéd ideology he believed stunted the development of Philippine art. Edades attested that "art is ever the expression of man's emotion, and not a mere photographic likeness of nature. Thus to express his individual emotion, the artist is privileged to create in that distinctive form that best interprets his own experience. And the distortion of plastic elements of art such as line, mass and color – is one of the many ways of expressing one's rhythmic form." That was the reason why his disproportionate figures are made that way – for the sake of composition. He was named a National Artist in 1976.

The Underestimated Medium
If you do a google search on oil pastel you might have noticed that not many artists seem to use them and an image search will return mostly kids drawings. Oil pastel maybe the underestimated medium but this medium is very fun and versatile.
1. Oil pastels spread well on dry medium
2. Oil pastels never completely dry so they will remain a bit soft, framing is the best option.
3. Oil pastels have soft and creamy texture
4. Easily mix colors or layering colors
5. Bring it on your travel
6. Blend colors for a smoother effect with a cloth or a Q-tip and a bit of baby oil

Sketching is a powerful process to use because it always helps discover the best ideas and solutions to a design problem. It is a difficult task to 'freestyle' a complex design out of midair without hashing out the details. This is why sketching will remain an important step in the design and development process. #arthistory #sketching #sketch#sketchart #artsupplies #art #DOMSartmaterials #artph

Know the Difference: Water Color Painting vs Oil Painting
BASE: Oil paints are a type of paints that utilize oil as their base, whereas water colors utilize water as their base.
DRYING TIME: Oil painting can take weeks to dry, while water color will just take hours.
TECHNIQUE: When using wet on wet technique, where the second layer of paint is put onto the first layer, before it has a chance to dry, water color requires more control and mastery to anticipate and control as they are more susceptible to bleeding and spearing.
CHANGES: On fixing a mistake, it is easier in an oil painting, as one can either scape the paint off, or paint over it with another layer. This cannot be done in a watercolor painting.
TRAVEL: Since water color dries quicker than oil, it is easier to bring your water color kit on your travels.
