Ms. Maricris Fabi Carlos will teach participants the step-by-step process in creating her magnificent art works from photographs. Her Amorsoloesque technique is a tribute to the late master painter and National Artist Fernando Amorsolo – the evocative color and distinctive lighting. “The Amorsoloesque concept, as inspired by National Artist Fernando Amorsolo whose art depicts Filipino culture, is a borne out of our own innate love for portraitures and landscapes,” Maricris says. “Through a brilliant amount of tweaking, a mere photo metamorphoses into a more dramatic work of art. The paintings of Amorsolo and his canvas live again in my photographs. Amorsoloesque is a learning technique; the only limit is your imagination.”
