Portrait... Javier Bardem in graphite

Javier Bardem portrait in graphite and watercolor pencils.

Meow there, Monday!  Wet and COLD weekend...  Glad Typhoon Ruby (international name: Hagupit) is on its way out of the country!  It was a rather anxious wait the past few days for the typhoon... with weather reports that were gloom-and-doom.  Thankfully it wasn't as bad as Yolanda (Haiyan)!  Anyway, posting the "finished" Javier Bardem portrait I was doing last week.  He has a very interesting (and good looking!!!) face, especially for an artist.  Lot of angles that play with light, shadow and contrast.  =^.^=

Added a little color, with watercolor pencils.  Kind of bored with doing all-graphite portraits... 

Javier is such a great actor!!!  "Biutiful" is certainly one of the best movies I've ever watched!  Watched it about four or five times coz it is such an great movie.  I love how he portrayed the character.  It's definitely not a pretty movie, it's actually rather heart-wrenching and some scenes are really harsh.  But I love it!   Watched also some of his other movies - Mondays in the Sun, Before Night Falls, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Goya's Ghosts... Can't get enough of his acting!!!  He really brings those characters to life and sooooo believable!

Very nice interview.  You get to know more about him as an actor and why he is such a good one.  And despite the very negative character he plays, he is actually a funny and positive person!
