The Final Outcome

The searing heat is getting too much to bear so am off on a vacation.... In the meanwhile, as promised last week, here is a peek into what that last sketch turned into.

I haven't named this one yet; any ideas from you all, dear readers?

First Strokes

Does it ever happen to you?....

...That the first few strokes look so amazing that you never get around to working on the rest of it!!!

Yes, it happens with me many a times. This one lay on my work table like this for a week before I actually felt like going in and finishing it. Of course the finished piece always looks quite different from those initial strokes.

Come back next week and I'll give you glimpses of what this finally turned into!

Laburnum: A Quick Study

My walk in the park today drew my attention to the bunches of yellow hanging overhead. The Laburnum or Amaltas was blooming again, the faint sweetness of its fragrance hanging in the crisp morning air.

As I looked up, I could see a maze of yellow flowers, green leaves and brown stems, with bits of sky filling up the background.

That is exactly what I have tried to capture in this quick study of the Amaltas, a flower I have admired for long but could finally bring myself to paint only now.

Hope you all have a good weekend!

Again one of those abstracts that came to me as I lay in bed preparing to fall asleep. How these pieces assume shape and reach you through the haze between sleep and wakefulness is something I am unable to comprehend.

I remember thinking of beachy sunsets, and of that stage of sundown where the sky and the water seem to merge into one. And then this piece emerged.... carrying reflections of one in another.

The blues look strong and piercing through the camera but upfront they are a more pleasing shade.

Been doing some papier mache recently; hop over to my Facebook page to see what got made! Hope you all are gearing up for a good weekend....
