calligraphic watercolours.

I am sharing some of my initial watercolourpaintings.I had started using a flat brush and was painting in calligraphically, meaning was holding brush only vertical and making broken lines as calligraphic strokes.Now i have come out of that phase!!...but sometimes it is good to introspect about ones earlier works too.I had not even started to sigh my paintings then.

As i mentioned earlier,i am trying to combine watercolour paintings with sketches or say sketches with watercolour! i did these on sunday.The scafoldings or props for renovations at university buildings were interesting elements to add as sketch feel.

Certain section in the university of pune always attracts me to paint.This is a spot, where you see mostly roofs of the buildings at various levels.There is a lot of scope for composition studies at this spot.Very favourite outdoor spot for most of local artists.

two houses at revdanda

Being an architect am inclined to draw structures of all kind.My senior artist friends alway remind me to see objects as forms and shapes,which i try to,still my love for houses is evident in my number of houses.These are two houses drawn recently at a place called revdanda.

fergussion college campus

This was done couple of years back and presented to a friend after framing.Recently i saw it in his house and clicked it .To avoid reflection on glass the picture is at an angle.When i see my old works i feel the progress, the ageing, the maturity ,the lack of spontaniety...! etc.
