Higham Hills Cottage, by Vinayak Deshmukh

Higham Hills Cottage, Watercolour on Paper, (9" x 15")

Most of the novels I read have made me dream about England and the english country life. I love to surf with Google Street View and visit places I can only dream of. I cam across this view in one of these "visits" ;) I used Fabriano paper for the first time today and found it a little too absorptive for my taste.

All comments and critiques are most welcome. To see my other works please visit


  1. Vinayak, this is so beautiful!! You have captured the feel of the English countryside so well. I like to google-visit around the world, too. :) My favorites are the British Isles and Italy.

  2. Very nice Vinayak! A pleasing painting :)

  3. Lovely! Google Street View is fantastic as it allows an artist to really get the feel of a place, far better than using photos. Enjoy your travels and keep posting!
