After the rain

After the rain : Watercolour : 15 X 11 inches

This one is an attempt to capture the wet atmosphere after the rain. Guess I failed, more or less. The foreground is a disaster, especially the reflections. Nevertheless here it is for you to see.

Your comments, suggestions and critiques please. Thanks.


  1. I am not a water color artist and does not know the technicalities, but for me, overall this is a very nice attempt. I liked the colors and yes, u could have added some more colors in the sky! Well painted though! :)

  2. Sujit,
    This is a good painting. Well the reflections are good and the foreground too. A little more wet in wet would have helped in capturing the wet atmosphere.

  3. I really like the painting --its fresh, loose and has beautiful colors! And actually, I like the reflections!

  4. Hi Sujit
    It looks very nice to me. Regards the foreground...a few suggestive strokes (for stones, shrubs etc) either around the reflections and near the bottom might help in bringing in some variation there. But overall a nice painting.

  5. I think you were succesful at capturing that after the rain look. Reflections are tricky, though I think you did a nice job, we're always harder on ourselves than others are :)

    But when I feel like I just didn't get something right with my painting it's because I'm rushing and I didn't take the time to really look and interpret. I just try to interpret and usually get the information wrong. Was this done from life? I think it has a ver fresh feeling. Good job :)

    I just found your blog, by the way. Nice to meet you! I paint watercolors too.

  6. This is perfect. I think its my favourite watercolou of yours. Everything is just so right about this one!
