Tree-Water colour on hand made paper 25 x 36 cm.

This is another plein air painting output. This is a tree in full bloom in my sister's building and I painted this in natural daylight at mid morning.I don't know what this tree is called , but in our mother tongue we call it "Krishnachura".

Plein Air - Garden, Water Colour

My first attempt at Plein air painting. This is a cross section of the garden below my building, done at around 7. 30 in the morning. I could not complete the whole painting in natural light, due to lack of time, as I had to rush to work.That's why I have not worked in shadows and light. I hope to do more as it is fun, exciting and the best learning experience.

Facade of old house- Water-colour

Tried a water painting again.I have been going through the works of various artistes. After getting confounded with various styles,I have come to the conclusion that different artistes use different techniques.There is a basic methodology, but at the end of the day, an artist has his or her own style.This is a painting inspired by a reknowned painter.I did this to get a hang of the spread and control of colours on hand made paper. I hope this will help me do an original painting tomorrow.

This is inspired by some anthuriums in the garden of my society.I had always been wanting to paint them since a year, but they were out of season for some months. Though its not the best season for flowers, I still brought them onto the canvas.I want to do another one when the flowers look more lush and pretty. Will wait for the right time of the year.
