House in the woods : Sketch

House in the woods : Watercolour : 15 X 11 inches

Ended up working on this quick watercolour sketch today. Given that I haven't been painting for a while it hasn't been easy for me to persuade myself to paint. I rather reluctantly started to work on this sketch but I guess am fairly happy with the result.

If this sketch grows into a painting the dark shape ( the door) on the ground floor of the building is going!

Your comments please. Thanks.

Monsoon : Watercolour : 22 X 15 inches

This is my first painting after a pretty long break. I must admit that I feel completely out of touch. I wouldn't call this a disaster, but I guess there are not too many things to be happy about in this painting. Well, hopefully this is just the beginning of me returning to painting. Ahem !

Your comments please. Thanks

From the archives

Which Way? : Watercolour : 15 X 11 inches

Haven't had time to paint at all, due to lots of changes in my life that occurred in the recent past. I have a new job and had to move to a new city. I am still trying to get my feet wet with a bunch of things.

But that doesn't mean I've given up painting. I will soon have my brushes wet and hope to be able to churn out something 'post-worthy'. As a prelude to it, I decided to dig some of my old work out of the archives. Here's one of them.

Your thoughts, critiques, comments and suggestions please. Thanks.

Distant Mountains

Distant Mountains : Watercolour : 22 X 15 inches

Mountains again, but this time at a distance. The sky ended being the same tone and colour as the mountains. A lighter tone would have given more depth I guess. Nevertheless, I am happy with the result, especially since I have stayed away from foliage rich subjects for a while :)

Your thoughts, critiques, comments and suggestions please. Thanks.

I might be gone for a while since my work is taking me places. I will be on a flight a few hours from now but my sketchbook is going with me too. I hope to be able to make good use of it. Guess I'll know soon:).

Hope to be back soon. So long....

Mountains all over

Mountains all over : Watercolour : 22 X 15 inches

What happens when you paint mountains after mountains after mountains? You end up creating new :). This one came right out of my imagination. Wasn't too sure if it would work. Gave it a shot nevertheless. After all, it just paper :)

Some not so pleasing shapes in the sky ended up being those peaks in the background.

Your thoughts, comments, critiques and suggestions please. Thanks

Looking at the peak

Looking at the peak : Watercolour : 22 X 15 inches

This time I decided to add some 'atmosphere' to the painting and that's why you see the attempted mist and clouds :). I guess I was in a hurry with the foreground and that resulted in a not so fresh wash in that area. Have left a note for myself to be careful about it the next time.

Your thoughts, critiques, suggestions and comments please. Thanks.

The road uphill

The road uphill : Watercolour : 22 X 15 inches

One more from the mountain series. I added a figure for scale. Did that work? Also tried a different colour scheme this time, just to avoid monotony.

I have to improve upon my figure drawing. The guy in this painting is not as convincing as I wanted him to be. Well, something to focus on.

Your comments, critiques, thoughts and suggestions please. Thanks.
