Looking at the sky

This I have drawn few weeks back from a reference photo  I got in the net. Decided to use payne's gray to draw trees in dry brush technique .

                              Watercolor on paper
I am still not comfortable handling actual watercolor paper mainly overdoing the foliage and trees. Still uploading to keep a track of my improvement.

I am trying these simple subjects on watercolor paper. Here I have given two wash as well as masking fluid to capture the light. but still i am not happy, something is missing.(sold)

Still I am not comfortable with watercolor paper compared to handmade paper. I am using a particular brand Brustro, which is good i feel. But i must confess  either i am overdoing my painting or I am slower than the required speed . But painting on this kind of paper seems much brighter so i have decided to carry on , doesn't matter how it come out.

Sometimes some simple glimpse of nature can be so beautiful. I hope to capture them and mix them with my imagination.

I have some sentimental attachment with this painting "jyotsna"(moonlight) as this is my first painting which got sold. My sister Amrita Sarkar purchased it recommended by my daughter Anouska

learnning the use of masking fluid.

                                                               The golden corn

                                                                   Pristine petals

When I first started watercolor few months back after a long gap, i was desperate to find some resource online to learn and start afresh. Fortunately I came across an eBook " The landscape painter's essential hand book" by Joe Francis Dowden.It is a outstanding book to learn and get inspired.I am grateful to Mr Joe Francis Dowden.The above two painting are done by me from that book.In both the picture I have used masking fluid for the first time.In the first painting the golden corn are masked before giving the second wash and the second painting the white flowers are masked before doing the foliage.
