Vicente Manansala is a master of color manipulation, using translucent colors for its power and evocative appeal. His oeuvre is widely celebrated for his dexterity in amplifying the beauty of each rendered subject matter and theme. As he utilized his signature transparent cubist style, he stayed close to figuration and produced renditions in basic geometric shapes through different mediums. Through his technical approach to watercolor painting in particular, folk images and everyday objects are also masterfully depicted in its domestic context. The overall coherence in this painting is achieved by his distinct sensibilities of perception and color and ability to provide structure and texture.
