First Yellow House Entry: Drawings and Paintings from Upper Rock Quarry

Going to start art journal here.  I don't want to crowd my regular journal with these thoughts.

I haven't started reading for the exam in Sales yet.  I spent the afternoon making a drawing of the houses at Upper QM.  I used pastel on felt paper.  I'm enjoying that surface -- finally able to use white -- pure delight!

Houses at Upper QM. Oil Pastel

I've already finished one self-portrait but two landscapes are still unfinished.  Yellow felt paper is very conducive.  I'm going to buy dark blue felt when the rains stop and the moon's out.  I intend to do a night pastel of the city. [blue felt good, but not excellent.  only one good work in blue felt -- night still life. April 30, 2001]

This house (of Kuya Ellis) in Upper Rock Quarry gives me so much to paint.  Everything around's a motiff!  I hope I could paint all I see -- Naguilian Road area in the west, City Hall and MOunt Crest in the North, the Cathedral in the east and houses & buildings everywhere!  [I didn't really get to paint these during my stay at Upper Rock Quarry but I was able to make quick drawings before I moved.  Below are some of those drawings. Sorry for the blurry images. Aug. 3, 2011] 

Baguio Downtown with Cathedral.  This was my first crack at acrylic paint on stretched canvas
