Watercolour or Watercolor.I love it!!

What a splendid thing watercolor is to express atmosphere and distance, so that the figure is surrounded by air and can breathe in it”
--Vincent Van Gogh



Water colours have always fascinated me.I love it for its sheer brilliance of colours, and the speed with which, you have to work.It is so difficult to capture that play of light.This is a simple landscape that I completed yesterday.I have used ONLY 5 colours, in the whole painting.

Have been staring at it, ever since. Still not tired!

  2. Great! :)
    Watercolours are difficult! I'd probably make a big blur of blue and that would be my painting. lol
    Or red maybe, I'm feeling very fiery today.

  8. Why would I delete the comment?
    It was a lovely comment, even if not meant for me.
    I was just popping on here now to make sure that you knew that a comment for you was posted on my blog.

    Anyway, the painting is beautiful. I do that too -- after I paint something, I stare at it for a long time. I have a painting I did in the 80's hanging in my room, and I still stare at that one, too...

  11. I'm so glad you've put your painting up for us to see! At first glance it almost looked Oriental..like the classical Chinese art I've often seen.Love the greens!!

    And I am just assuming that you did realize that you posted this Van Gogh quote on his (and MY!) birthday???

    Thanks. From the both of us. Theo will pass out the favours or favors later.

  14. God I wish i could create art like yours. It is much slower to create emotion in words, but people can look at a painting and be taken to emotion in the space of a second.

  18. Thank you all!Your words really encourage.

    Gawpo: I didnt know you shared a birthday with MY MOST FAVOURITE ARTIST in the world!!! Now I like you even more!!(as though i needed a reason!)

    Mr.J: I applied a awash first.Waited for it to dry.Then did the whole thing.Total time taken, including drying time would be about 35 minutes approximately.

  19. No wonder you've been staring at it ever since! It sure is delightful and beautiful!

  20. one of the best so far in my eyes of course knowing very well that the really arty types of paintings dont interest me so much. This is right up my street and knowing you did this in less than 15 minutes is a masterpiece. Want this kind of a painting done on a large board, framed and put up in the drawing room. Fantastic pic....

    I haven't touched water colors after I started using Oil paints. But on seeing your paintings I wish to do one painting using water color on handmade paper...

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…
