The subjects that I frequently use are street scenes, especially those in Manila, the capital of the Philippines. I spend 1 and a half months creating every piece, 5 days a week, 5 hours a day, in the size of 21x29 inches.

What's good about this subject is that it shows an ordinary scene in an extraordinary time, which is frequently unnoticed by us. I've chosen watercolor because I believe this medium can show the soul and character of the subjects, as well as the characters in every piece. Another reason why I chose watercolor is that it is also one of the hardest mediums when it comes to painting.

I'm impressed. Using watercolor and getting these rich tones isn't easy.

How very sad - the horse is in misery - skin on bone, and all that heavy junk on him. The painting depicts real life and I'm sure this was a real scene at some time. Notice the years of the cars shown. Wow

I love these. Some scenes look straight out of Mexico or Central America, but then the Asian lines come through strong... Amazing.

These grayscale paintings may be even more impressive (if that's possible). They display such a mastery of contrast.
