What am I trying to do here,what is my focus and the visual statement..a desire to paint loose and abstract..pleasing large audience..painting or..just shutpnpaint..

I don't usually paint sunsets,whenever I tried somehow painting looks too melodramatic for my liking .This one mix media ,I am quiet happy with the look..what say..

examination point

we usually have our last day session of my workshop at this spot.A nice corner opp University building ,lot of us can sit together and paint.This is usually the outdoor session of my watercolor course and I insist students to work without looking at what I am doing.a sort of exam for them
coincidentally the building we paint happens to be a corner of exam department of Univ.
the paper used here is montval which is bad, slippery paper made for watercolor.the bad paper sometimes challenges to bring the better in you.

Manali Roofs

"faithfulness in emotional life and consistency in a life of an intellectual is one and the same thing
a confession of failure."
Oscar Wild character Lord Henry says something like this. A consistently great quality and wins can be a management virtues but in art you have to be a "loos"er from time to time to go further..

Villege n Nasik

Almost a travel back in time.It is going to be more and more "not" possible to see anything like this.
Though I have painted this one in my usual style I have very carefully added lots of details like tiled roof(you can even count them)bricks and little stones on the ground.
Details is a tricky thing..they can damage more than contribute, many a times.
Yet I believe as long as the tonal mass is not disturbed they can add up as texture ind interest..
