Practice Water Colour

This is a copy of an original, which was in oil.Trying to get a hang of water colours . However, I couldn't get the technique right I guess. My close friend, who is a violin artist herself took it to frame and hang it in her music room

WaterColour practice

This post is kind of emotional. A close friend of mine, who has been through my ups and downs, empathises with my interest for art and constant struggle to make time for it and learn more. This Dussehra (Indian festival), I got a huge art book home delivered from this friend, with Saraswati (Indian Goddess of Learning and arts) Puja (Indian religious ritual) done on it and encouraging compliments wishing me a future of great art!I was touched beyond words. The book is named " Women Artists", by Margaret Barlow.It comprises works of women artists over the world. This is a practice water painting done from one of the paintings from the book by Katherine Cameron.Water colour is a new medium for me and I am trying to learn the nuances. I must say this was a really really tough painting.
