Bahay Kubo (Nipa hut)....

-----------------( click image to enlarge )
This idea came to me while i was washing a pair of pants today humming a very popular filipino folk song about a Nipa hut surrounded by diffirent kinds of vegetables.... I got inspired by a song ha-ha....! Nipa by the way, as it is commonly known in the Philippines is a palm tree variety that only grows amongs the mangroves along the banks of shallow and muddy rivers....


The sword shape leaves of this palms can be folded, arranged and stitched in a row using the fibers from the same tree over a thin bamboo splitting to form a meter and a half long ply that are then being used as a roofing material for bamboo houses.... The Nipa roofs can last for five years.... =D

Rooster and hen....

-----------------( click image to enlarge )
This is my version of a Rooster and its Hen.... Still using my Corel Draw software.... Okay ba....? It's not as hard to do as those ones i did in oil before because i can easily draw and colour this software-generated art less the trouble of preparations and mixing of colours, and most of all the mess, but still this kind of art helps me a lot in exercising my hand as well as my brain to further improve my talent and skills....


I'm having a lot of fun using this fantastic software ha-ha....! I think i'll just call these Corel arts my study because i might transfer them to the canvas later on.... =D

Durian....

-----------------( click image to enlarge )
Ang Durian bow....! This is probably the only fruit that i haven't tried yet in my whole life and i guess i'll never will ha-ha....! It has a reputation of being the most stinkiest of all fruits....


They said that it will take a tough nose to stand it's smell but don't be fooled by that, the meat of this fruit is said to be very tasty and sweet, you have to avoid the spikes though....! I've enjoyed drawing this so much because of those spikes, they are very challenging to draw.... =D
