Romeo Tabuena’s depiction of women vendors is an ode to the technique that he made his own. His style is a mix of using geometric shapes and playing with the transparency of overlapping layers. The sepia colors used in the work elicits drama and an overall tranquil mood. Like many great modernists, Tabuena was heavily invested in the group that exhibited at the Philippine Art Gallery. Here he learned and worked with the Moderns, developing similar techniques and even subject matter such as cityscapes and vendors.
