Orville Giguiento

When all things slowed down due to covid 19 in the summer of 2020, I dug up my brushes and went back painting, started to join painting clubs and plein air competitions.

Though I dabble with oil, acrylic and digital media, I love the nuance and challenges of watercolor as reflected in most of my recent works. Being self- taught, I don't adhere to any set rule or styles, but is in continuous exploration of the magic that is, watercolor.
