Pong Pagong and Kiko Matsing.
My childhood friends
I saw them on my way to Recto last weekend.

They didn't even recognize me.

Manila Fire




Why am i painting fires?
I wanna find out how dark i can get
with watercolours without ruining the paper.
So far, I couldn't get anywhere as dark as I want them to be.
Watercolour is a very tricky medium.
It's dark enough when wet.
But when it dries, it gets way lighter.
I need more practice.

ink and water

The Patient's Patience

An old man waiting at a Manila Hospital.
He was staring into nothing, not moving.
So i did a quick sketch of him.
Finished the piece with some loose ink drawing
and a few watercolour washes.



Mother and Child in ink

My wife Lisa and our baby Rain.
Also from the same hospital scene.
A quick unfinished pencil sketch
topped with ink and watercolour.



Under The Sun's Warmth

Yeb, 6 and Kydlat, 4. My nephew and son.
From a black and white 135m photo of them.

watercolour studies


I use to love watercolours when I was in college.
But then the more i studied it, the more scared i got.
So I stayed away from it and drifted towards oils.

I haven't touched watercolours for many years.
Until now.


This is Rain. My 6 month old daughter.
She's the reason I'm trying to get back to watercolours.
I have to rediscover my long lost love for it
because I couldn't find time to do oils since she was born.





And I'm having fun so far!



More to come...
