Watercolor work is nowadays as valuable, as a mean for artistic expression, as oil is. The masters of XVI century already started using it to create not only sketches, but paintings.

This kind of painting is for me an irresistible attraction as it is challenging to express something in the first attempt, unable to correct it due to the restrictions of the technique itself.

I'm Mexican, I live near a large archaeological zone called "Teotihuacan" where there are murals, sculptures and monumental architecture, and although my work contains almost no pre-Hispanic elements, I feel fortunate in this environment that inherits the artistic talent of our ancestors.


Some of the works display nudity, if you're within the category of people who shouldn't be looking at them, please refrain from entering to the gallery.
