#1 – Mangos

I couldn’t resist the temptation to buy the iPad Pro…  and yes, I’m talking about the gigantic one! Now, I’m discovering how to use all these amazing tools for drawing, sketching, coloring, and also trying new ways to ally technology to my old fashion way of doing art: pen, pencils, watercolor, mixed media and oil.

I’ve decided now to work on watercolor because of its freshness and unexpected final results. It’s been a long time since I’ve worked with this particular media and I need to practice to regain the skills I lost to express what I want to. As the seasons in Spain change, the variety of food changes with it. So I decide to start a new project: to capture the Spanish way of enjoying food .

Street vendor in Paraguay

The portraits of street vendor boys from Paraguay represent the lost childhood, the anguish of living in the streets, never knowing when their next meal might be. Their features are nonetheless simple, despite the everyday hardness. They look intriguing, sweet but also rebellious.
