Title - After the Rain
watercolour on paper (size - 11' x 15')

As an artist and also an educator, my aim is not only just to transform my unique vision of nature through painting ,but also to evoke a sense of tranquility , peace , serenity and harmony. Here is a painting I did up in a few months ago. This is also a fully imaginative work of mine. A sudden spark of idea came suddenly in my mind after a heavy downpour, and I transformed the idea into a painting in my studio that very day.

A Lonely River

Title - Lonely River
Watercolour on paper (11" x 7.5") 

People often get confused thinking how the artist plans to start a painting. I have some different approach regarding this matter. Sometimes I make some initial sketch by drawing some basic lines with pencil or pen ,sometimes I also start painting directly with brushes fully loaded with colours. I always advise my students to keep the initial sketch simple and purposeful. I have also said you earlier  that limiting your palette will drive you to concentrate more on your values.

In this painting I have again used the white of the paper  in the background and the foreground . I have also used the backside of my brush to bring the effect of the big trees beside the bank of the river.

Abstract Landscape

Dominance of colour temperature should be displayed in a painting. But a balance should be there while using the negative space of your painting. Here I have used the  white of the paper to keep display cool. I have used bold single brush technique  loaded with colors. The whole picture was drawn with the help of single flat brush.
