Watercolor Experiment Continues...

My experiment with watercolor keeps continuing, and as I do more and more, the learning is immense and teaches me what to do first and what next, as a step by step approach. Most important it teaches me patience to wait for a day to dry completely and then apply the next layer. This painting was done whenever had some 15-30mins free time, did not do in single stretch. Obviously friends and colleagues in office appreciate, but only I know where the mistakes are :) and ofcourse a professional would easily find them. As always your critics are welcome to improve myself.

Radha Krishna - Experiment on Watercolor

Guess what I did this weekend? yeah its again Radha Krishna in watercolor. This appeared to be easy at first sight, since I dont have to draw the real face, but ended up really difficult in preparing the background with those dark colors. I should have used masking fluid to cover the main picture and played around with the background dark colors, its ok, another learning. experiment continues...

Please provide your valuable suggestions to improve.

Peacocks - Color Wash

Another art which attracted me while browsing, must be a colorwash, so tried to keep my drawing board horizontal and did a color wash. Even though I could not match the original art, am satisfied with the result I got, for my serious third watercolor drawing.

Hope everyone like it, please share your suggestions to improve.

The Peacock Dance - Watercolor

The more and more I search for watercolor arts, the more I get inspired with the creativity and techniques used and trying my hands. After a long time, got a free weekend to explore watercolors. It looked simple when I saw, but when tried, the actual effort was known. Will surely try one more of the same drawing, with the learning I got from this drawing.

Hope you all like it, and please give me suggestions to improve.

Radhe Krishna - Watercolor

Quite for a long time I have been thinking to try my hands on watercolor, have been trying lot of techniques but yet to master them. First time trying Lord Krishna with Radha in watercolor, took long time leaving breaks for the colors to dry, to apply layers, required patience. Learned how the strokes and colors look after drying, ones looking dark are not goin to be really dark after drying :), I know there are lot to improve, please provide you suggestion and tips on where to improve and is there any other technique I can try to make it even better.

"India Today" Coverage - Self Taught Artist

Another exciting moment happened in Dec 2013 was an article covering about "Self Motivated Artist" in India Today. It was a pleasant surprise for us, when reporter and photographer from the Magazine visited us and started interviewing us about our passion. Very happy to see an article covering my photo while sketching during Chennai Weekend Artist's Sunday meet at Queen Mary's College, Chennai.
