Angel Locsin recently tried “something new": Painting.
She recreated contemporary artist Leonid Afremov’s Passion.
Afremov's website is currently selling a 54"x40" version of the artwork, which he created with oil paints and a palette knife, for $700.
Meanwhile, Angel’s work was lauded by fellow celebrities.
Marian Rivera left a Heart Eyes emoji, which thrilled almost 1,500 netizens who liked the Kapuso actress’ comment.
Parokya ni Edgar vocalist Chito Miranda, who is also a Fine Arts major, was pleasantly surprised, “What???!?! Di nga?! Ikaw gumwwa nyan?!”
He added in the comments column, “Galing masyado.”
Angel’s best friend Dimples Romana echoed, “Napakahusay namaaaaan.”
Siblings Bubbles and Paolo Paraiso were also impressed.
Same with Iza Calzado, who remarked, “Seriously???? Your are so good!!!! Gel, make more!!!”
Sarah Lahabati asked, “Is the re something you can’t do?” Her exact comment was, “WOW [heart eyes emoji] Ganda, Gel!!! Ano bang hindi mo kayang gawin!!!”
Of course, Angel's fiance Neil Arce did not miss the post, and dropped three clapping hands emjojis.
Responding to Chito’s comment, Angel said she used Paint by Numbers—a painting kit which has a board with light markings to indicate areas to paint, and each area has a number and a corresponding numbered paint to use.
She added, “Sinubukan lang, tsong :)”
