black and white..

I tried using black colour in waterpoof ink and acrylic paints,this sunday at university campus.I have drawn tower so many times that i can draw it withuot looking at it!These sketches are done as an experiment opposit to watercolour sketches,meaning drawing a bigger sketch with black and white. the size of paper is A-2 size.

merry Xmas to all.

This the biggest sketch paint i have tried so far .The tile on my floor is 1feet x 1 feet(30 cm.)
the paper used is exposed ammonia roll.I have used black and coloured waterproof ink.Also used mostly sponge brushes to cover bigger paint areas quickly. it took me 15 minutes to complete this sketch...I enjoyed the process,but not the end result, as i had not attempted big canvass as yet..may be few more of such attempts and end results could be good too. have a look of the process.

A sort of demo

While i sketched and painted ,my office staff photographed the process.I was just experimenting with black and white sketching with a dash of colour.The size is bigger than normal sketchbook,and that was the challenge! can see the result.

before and after

i am putting some sketches in black and white(before),and same sketches with washes of watercolour(after).I was in rush to go to some programme and had no time for painting so did the colouring part at home.This is the first time i did that, but surely wont be a last time,as i can do more with this method..only problem is to find out time at home after sunday.

signature 1

i was trying to crop my images for collection of my signature,and some interestng compositions were seen .I sign my initials differently every time ,as a part of overall painting composition.I am posting some for you to see.They are not complete paintings ,but surely with some abstract values.
i also use date or place to enhance the signature and painting.

abstraction from nature!!??

there was a demonstration of how to make abstraction from nature,i.e landscape in abstract form.An artist did a painting and some of us tried to do on similarlines...
i just didnot see the point as any landscape we draw is an absrtaction any way.posting something i painted afterwards.

rainy sunday morning,

The global warming is really affecting the rain pattern in pune.It rained heavily on sunday morning,which forced me to do sketches sitting inside the temple which i had planned to paint from outside...But i enjoyed it as rarely i do interior sketches!..the courts within temple provided combination of outdoor and indoor spaces.I forgot to take my camera,but i am visiting the same spot next sunday,so will post photos of this beautiful temple next time.Till then enjoy the sketches/paintings.

trshund ganapati temple ,pune

I miseed my sunday outings for 3 weekends due to various reasons.I didnot missthis sunday morning and went to this temple which is 250 years old and is declaired as a heritage monument.It requires repairs badly.The actual temple is too difficult to paint,so i ahve done surrounding areas.

sketches ...and paintings...!!

I generally complete 8 to 10 sketches in about 3 hours of outdoor painting on sunday.Since i dont get much time from my busy schedule during the week,i try and draw as much as possible!! the necessity has become a habbit over the years and now it is called as style of my own by some of my friends!!..i take it with a pinch of salt! anyway here are few remaining from my last sunday collection.

painting or sketching

I am doing sketching with paints or painting with sketch effect.what ever it is i am enjoying it.I generally paint on pure watercolour painting and then go on to do sketching with use of pen and sketchpen alongwith water colours.i am posting both to show the difference.the first one is a painting.
