The place in this painting is Takmachik village in Ladakh. Alleys are always very nice to paint. And this one also had the perfect lighting along with very beautiful houses and those flower vases on the windows.

I'll be on a break for a week and hence will be absent from blogsphere. See you all after a week. Till then enjoy this one.

Apricots and Doodles

I did some experimentation once again. The paper I used for the first painting is normal cheap drawing sheets which are quiet smooth and have no texture. I did not use any pencil because I thought it was unnecessary as I was just doing a trial on the paper. It took about 30 minutes to complete. Though this paper does not reflect as much light as a proper watercolor paper, I did quiet like the end result.

The photo for this came from a friend which she clicked at Ladakh.

I have also posted some doodles from my sketch book.

Painting vertical

For this painting I kept my board almost vertical on the easel and tried to paint. The idea was to see how it would be.

Well it was different, but I really cant tell how it was different quantitatively. I think that is because in case of this one it was not so different. But it did feel good.

Color Scapes Gallery

Bangalore now has a new art gallery at Whitefield. Its called 'Color Scapes'. The entire gallery and the space surrounding it is very aesthetically designed. There is a lot of open space and it seems in some days there is going to be a small cafe there. So if someone is planning to spend some arty time there one can do it in leisure with some hot coffee for company. And it is conveniently located about a kilometer off from main Whitefield road opposite Herbs and Spices restaurant.
I am posting some pictures of the gallery.

Wondering why am I telling you all this? Well you'll be able to spot some of my paintings in the gallery. :)

Before I sign off a very very happy, safe and prosperous Deepavali to all of you.
