Golden Fields

Watercolor on paper
14 x 21 inches

I have used Saunders Waterford (300 gsm) for this painting. When compared to others, this paper is a little yellowish...good for subjects that don't have much whites!

Locked Door

Watercolor on paper
10 x 14 inches
Photo reference provided by Daniel David Talegaonkar. Thanks very much Daniel :)

I just loved the texture on this old wooden door and needless to say, the brilliant light and shadows. Did this on a rough paper to get the texture.

Light and shadow

'Police chowki, Udaipur'
Watercolor on paper
11 x 15 in.

This is the 'Police chowki' (Police station) in Udaipur. The bright light on the upper right portion of the building and the shadows caught my attention. Some unwanted elements were eliminated while composing, thereby keeping the composition simple and highlighting just the play of light and shadow.

Yet another study...

I'm not able to make changes in text alignment for quite sometime! Anyone getting the same problem?
