Hanuman Dhoka-Durbar square

I was in awe seeing the architectural beauty of Nepal.  This is a glimpse from one of the many Durbar squares at Kathmandu valley..this one is near Hanuman Dhoka.  Still a long way to go before i get the balance between light and shade perfectly.  Watercolour on Brustro 300gsm 16X12 inch.

Nilgiris(blue mountain)

Picked this subject from a photograph of my classmate in facebook!  It's from the Nilgiris mountains..and it was challenging to catch the depth.  Goofed up a little with the washes and had to redo many layers, as well as the bushes in foreground.   Water colour on 300gsm Fabriano 12X16 inch.

Our Pug Diesel!

This is my first painting of our pug DIESEL.. Water colour on Chitrapat 320 gsm paper, 14 X10 inch.


Attempted a simple scenery picked from a newspaper. Add a few birds in the distant sky to bring some life.  Was satisfied with the clouds but not so much with the foreground and the water!  Water colour on Brustro 330gsm 16 X12 inch.

Tried to do a simple watercolour with multiple wash to capture the setting sun..the painting is from a TV advertisement...i was impressed by the intense colours which was a challenge for water colour washes!  Water colour on paper canson 19 X14 ", 150 GSM.

Another painting from a photograph taken at Leh!  A nondescript Gompa in Leh town caught my attention.  When I stepped in, I knew that I would be painting this one day.  The Gompa was so peaceful and silent, all I heard was the coloured flags' soft rustling. I was getting bored with my usual greens in my landscapes and hence it was a welcome change to check out my perspective talent! Water colour on canson 185 gsm, 29 X19 inch

Plein air- Lal bagh

This was  plein air done at Lal bagh about 10 days ago.  It was fun to join the Pencil Jammers after a long break. I had to correct this with a few washes to reduce the details in the background...  enjoyed the week end out doing what I like very much!  Water colour on hand made pad 14 X10 inch.

Silent Indus 2

This is the second painting from the Silent Indus series.  I realised the need to do a value sketch after doing the painting, as I had given a number of washes to get the correct value, but I was still far away from my objective.  It was a bold attempt to paint the sun rays.  Water colour on hand made paper 29 X19 inch.

en plein (misty) air: Sankey Tank

This was painted at Sankey tank (Bangalore) 3 weeks back.  The morning was misty and i could only see the island.  I guess there was nothing else to paint, so I kept it simple! Water colour on hand made paper 16X12 inch

This is my first attempt at a sea/landscape from an overhead view.  Taking heart from a few fellow bloggers I executed this water colours on a handmade paper 22X14 inch. The subject is from a newspaper photograph in the travel section of times of India. Happy New Year...and a big warm welcome to 2013!
