Evening Coffee

'Evening Coffee'
Watercolor on Fabriano paper 300 gsm CP
14 x 10 inches

This painting is one of my most favorites...a small piece, I'm very happy about and much fond of. You don't feel that way with all your paintings (until, of course, you sell
Also this one has been chosen for the upcoming International watercolor exhibition in Budapest, Hungary from 9 - 25 Sep. 2016 organized by the IWS Hungary...yet another reason to be happy :-) I thank the jury and the organizers for the opportunity.

Traffic near Mayo Hall

Watercolor on Arches CP Paper,
14 x 21 inches

This is one of the important landmark buildings in Bengaluru - the Mayo Hall. I did this from my reference photograph that I took when I lived there for a couple of years. The building was painted in white then. Recently it was changed to red, which might look good to people, but to us painters, particularly watercolorists, it might not be so because the red sometimes feels chalky/opaque and may get muddy thereby losing the essence of watercolors- transparency and vibrancy.
