Pink Flowers

Watercolor on paper
11 x 15 inches

Usually flowers are not my preferred subject but seeing some floral paintings by some very good artists got me inspired to paint them and anyway I feel that an artist should try painting various subjects! I also looked for some good books on painting flowers and have short-listed a couple of them. Meanwhile, I tried to paint these pink flowers (don't know what they are called... :)) from my garden and really enjoyed it :)

Two commissioned paintings

'Coca Cola Bike'
Watercolor, 14 x 21 in.

'Bicycle in the garden'
Watercolor, 11 x 15 in.

A client who very recently purchased 4 of my paintings was interested in some more paintings with bicycle themes and I could not be more happy... :)
Fortunately, I had some bicycle pictures from my trips that I wished to paint and now I had good reason to do so. Initially, I made some sketches and showed to my client out of which he selected two. I did larger and final versions of those and shipped them yesterday. Today I got a call from him that he liked both the paintings very much :)

Here are the sketches of these two paintings:

Another good news I wish to share is that my painting 'Chinese fishing nets' is also sold. It was bought by an art collector in Hyderabad a couple of days ago.

Have a great weekend!
