Title - Cosy
Size - 22 x 15 inch
Medium - Watercolor on Paper

I was trying this little different subject this time. It took me almost double the time I usually take for a painting. There were so many straight lines, play of perspective and so much of negative painting that had to be done that by the end of it I almost lost interest in this one. Hope you like it.

Love it.
The plant growing toward the light is well observed and the feeling of light and shadow is just great!

Crystal Cook said...

It looks fantastic Prabal. I can just imagine how tricky those straight lines were, I hate doing those. I love the way the plant is reaching for the light. Such a cool theme. :)

Yasha carol,
I am glad you liked it.

'The plant growing towarsd light'. What a nice observation.

Prabal said...

Thanks for empathizing. As I told they were so many of them that in the end I almost lost interest in this. :) But good thing is that I completed it. And better.. You like it too. :)

Like it? I love it! I love all of those lines in different directions which give it added interest - and those colours are just gorgeous! :0)

I love it! All those lines! I'm glad you didn't lose interest. Lovely colours.

Missed your last two posts - enjoyed your 'experiment' with the wet paper, but absolutely love Dusk on Mandovi!

Your straight lines paid off. They add so much graphic interest. Love how the vines are trying to escape and it looks like the shadows are trying to stay in.

Prabal said...

I am happy that you loved it. :) yes those l;ines in all directions are interesting.

I was wondering where you had been. Thanks for your likes.

Prabal said...

What an observation. I had not even thought about it. But now I see it too. :)
