Hi there. Thank you all so much for wishing me speedy recovery. I actually did recover just in time for the workshop.

The workshop was a lot of fun. The first day of the workshop was indoors and the focus was on basic watercolor techniques, color theory, composition, design, simplification, sketching etc. Not only did we practice techniques and discussed about concepts we also did a complete painting each. Second day was outdoors. And the place we went to was Ulsoor lake. There was slight drizzle and we thought our plans to paint outdoors may all go awry, but thankfully we found a place with some protection over our heads. And we all really enjoyed ourselves painting in a cool rainy atmosphere by the lake. 

Though it was very tiring I really enjoyed myself. All the students were very enthusiastic and passionate. They really kept me on my toes all the time and I loved that. I hope the they were able to learn a thing or two and most importantly I hope I was able to fuel their sparks within.

Thanks to all the participants and all those at Penciljam studios who made it possible.

Here are some pictures of the workshop.

The pice are great. The students surely seem to be happy to have learned from you. Your demo painting is mindblowing. The wet-in-wet technique seems like your second nature now! :)

I'm feeling just a little jealous that I didn't get to go! It looks like such a great time. I would LOVE to see you paint, and paint with you outdoors would be just too cool. I'll add that to my bucket list. ;)

Your demo painting is gorgeous. And the pic of the girl engrossed in painting is awesome.

Prabal said...


I'll try and share my experiences at AOI. It will be a longer post than this. May take a little time.

Thanks for everything you said. :)

Prabal said...

I am so glad you liked this one. The workshop was really good. The students made it so.

AK sir,
Thank you so much.

Thanks man. Wet in wet is still as much mystery to me as it was sometime back. :)
