Optical Illusion (Watercolor)

This painting is what I call optical illusion. The original photograph was so small that no details were visible. But I was compelled to give it a try because of the 'light' in the picture. The painting also does not have clearly defined details though I have painted the shadows very carefully. The impact of the painting from a distance is simply great but if you look closely it may not appear to be a pretty picture. But I love it nonetheless!!

Moving to Larger Paintings (Watercolor)

I have started painting on a larger paper now and it has its own challenges! With practice I should get a good handle on it.

Value-scape (watercolor)

This one is based on a photograph I took in Seville, Spain. At first I was overwhelmed by the details in the photo so I decided to make a small thumbnail value sketch. I then realized that it was really the reflection of sky in the wet road which made the photograph interesting. I then decided to do away with most details and painted this similar to the original value sketch. I liked the results!
