Mano Po, Lola by j0rosa Mano Po, Lola by j0rosa
... a Filipino respect way for greeting our parents and grandparents (but mostly done now to our grandparents).
Sort of Impressionist style for the original photo was so small that i needed to enlarge it resulted to a very pixelated copy. I need to guessed where to put the neccessary details (shadowing, details on faces, etc.) myself...
I added the cross on the right corner to represents the majority of Catholics and for Filipinos being religious ...
As well as the reason why we, Filipinos, don't name our baby girls "Lola" for it's grandMom in Tagalog ;)

acrylic on 14"x18" stretched canvas

Mano Po, Lola (c) JOKing

May I have your permission to use it on my site? www.filipinoplanet.com I have a section about filipino traditions which includes mano po and your beautiful painting perfectly illustrates it. I would certainly give you credit and link to your deviantART page too. It would be included on this page [link] Please let me know. Thanks!

Marami pang kailangang matutuhan. Self-taught, natuto lang maghalo ng kulay nung nanduon kami sa Australia. Di pa kayang walang photo ref. pagnagpe-painting :nod:

How do you keep your acrylics from looking so dull? what are your references (artists that inspire you) when you are painting, especially creating bright brights and rich darks? It is a very beautiful painting, so loose and it does have a feeling of calm.

I use the "medium gel" with my acrylic paints when painting, then once i'm done with the piece, coat it with the "soluble varnish" (two to three times) to get the oil looking effect ;)
