My original watercolor artwork of Philippine Vinta on tropical / Philippine / Filipino themed Christmas cards and gift items now available via Zazzle.com.
For this artwork, I have used my newly purchased pastel palette of watercolor pigments from Charvin Paris. I really enjoyed using this watercolor palette. It's such a wonderful discovery, and I hope it showed in the finished product.
Watercolor painting is my full-time hobby and side passion. I have collected a few paintings over the years, and also sell some Filipino-themed creations online via Zazzle.com. Please remember to change the domain (.com, .fr, .uk, etc) to your shipping location when ordering. This will give you a better price for the shipping.
Hi I'm Rio, a watercolor artist based in France. I'm a Software Engineer / Data Engineer / Cloud Architect (tech geek in short) by profession, with watercolor painting as one of my many interests. I had no formal training in watercolor painting, only self-learned to paint via tutorials on the internet. Back in the early 2000’s, I took a crash course in photography back in the Philippines, and took a short course on Drawing at La Salle College of the Arts in Singapore in 2014.
