Poster Wall

Watercolor & collage on paper
14 x 21 inches

Back to one of my favorite subjects - bicycles...
But for the lovely textured old wall with those old torn posters...typically Indian, this subject would not have been worth painting. I very much enjoyed painting this one as I could use a lot of watercolor techniques here - masking, wet in wet, wet on dry, dry brush, lifting, spattering etc. to create the texture on the wall. Finally I did some collage work, pasting those little posters and painting them over with little color and adding some shadows to make it look very realistic.
Hope you like it :)

Udaipur Vista

Watercolor on paper
14 x 21 inches

This view of Udaipur city is from the hill temple of godess Karni mata. The temple is approached by ropeway cable cars. The view of sunset from this point is the major attraction but by the time I reached the top, the sun had gone down but the sky still had that last glow of light...

Udaipur Sunset

Watercolor on Arches Paper
10 x 20 inches

I was gone to Mumbai for a week and hence couldn't upload any new work!
This scene from Udaipur is of the same place as my last post although in a different mood and color! Hope you like it. Comments welcome :)
