A few weeks ago, Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior ship was here in Manila, and I was fortunate to be invited to talk about vegan food. At the event, I met Ms. Vigie of Greenpeace, and when we later had lunch at Pipino. While she was discussing Greenpeace’s upcoming projects with me, I took the opportunity to share the things that I love, and bring more people together to help the cause.
IFEX International Fine Paper Exchange provided us with Arches Watercolor Paper and Winsor and Newton Professional Watercolors.
As a little token, I gave the artists my superfine brushes. These brushes are now available at Commonroom ATC and Katipunan!
After a round of fun introductions and learning about each one’s favourite vegetable, we dove right into painting (with some chika on the side haha).
Everyone worked so fast!! I kept talking to my seatmates (lol) and kept standing up to take photos, so I ended up finishing last, haha. Check out all the artworks in progress!
After painting, we printed our artworks using the Canon Pixma G3010 printer. Everyone was sooo amazed with the color and print quality! You can hardly tell which one is the original from the print!
My chosen veggie is Monggo—because it’s easy to plant, always tastes like home, and is packed with protein at 24g per serving!
And here are the artists’ amazing works!
