Perspective (Watercolor)

The chair in the background creates incredible depth in the picture. That's the main reason why I love painting this again and again.

Two new paintings (watercolor)

Here are two paintings which are little different than the ones I do normally. One is more like a portrait of a tree and the other one is painted very loosely. I hope you will love both.

Guruwar Peth, Pune (Watercolor)

I did a sketch on site and then made this painting based on photograph. I loved the composition with the shadow angling across the building. Painters will tell you that it's very difficult to stop once you start painting the details. This one is a prime example - where I had to tell myself to STOP. The bricks on the wall was the last detail I painted.

I'd been to Anjarle in Konkan in February 2012. Here is a painting based on an early morning scene captured in my camera.

Lavasa 5 (water colour)

The road to Lavasa goes through some small villages fortunate enough to be away from so called developer's eyes. So one still finds some beautiful green fields there. Here is one such farm bathed in the late afternoon sunshine.

Lavasa 4 (Watercolor)

The road to Lavasa has many twists and turns which people find exciting for various reasons. Those who love driving enjoy them and those who have car sickness are excited for wrong reasons! For me each turn presents a beautiful scene worth painting. Here is one I liked.

Don't touch! it's wet! (Watercolor)

A friend had posted a photograph on facebook of unusual rains in Muscat. It made a very nice subject especially for watercolor painting where we paint "wet on wet" to create the atmosphere. Hope you will enjoy this.
