Freddie Aguilar after two paint sessions

I'm definitely beginning to like where this portrait of Freddie Aguilar is going. I'm starting to feel the man behind the image.

Ka Freddie

And now for something completely different...
This is a sketch on linen canvas 20 x 24 inches of a Filipino singer, Freddie Aguilar, we went to see twice in his own bar where he plays several times a week with his band.

He is a folk/protest singer who started singing in the 70's and was active in protest against the Marcos regime.

He still has it, with his music today.
He has a short entry in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freddie_Aguilar

I am ready to start putting the paint on...
