A soft pastel painting of “Frothy Sea Waves” by Manju Panchal


Choose only one master - Nature”.  Rembrandt

The soft pastel painting below is inspired by the beautiful “Frothy sea waves” which 
reach the shore after a long journey. When observed closely, 
the froth creates interesting shadow patterns on the sands 
below. Soft pastel, I feel, is a great medium to capture the beauty 
of these waves on paper.

For most of my pastel paintings, my preferred choice of paper
 is undoubtedly “Canson Mi Teintes” which is available 
in many different shades.

How important are edges in watercolor

Very few people know that there are three kinds of edges in a painting. A loose edge a soft edge and a hard edge and you must know where to add hard edge in your painting. The hardest edge point will become your focal point.

Motherly instinct 5 x 7 oil on linen

A water colour painting of a beach scene by Manju Panchal



“The world always seems brighter when you’ve just 
made something that wasn’t there before.” 
Neil Garman

I recently completed one of my watercolor paintings 
on Canson Moulin du Roy paper and am posting the completed work
along with the steps involved in creating it. It was an early 
morning scene, when we were at Colva beach 
and it was not crowded. The stretch of sand far across, 
and the misty look in the distance motivated me to create this work.

Size 5.5” X 8”

Step 1. Created the sky using a mix of warm and cool colours, and added the distant foliage on the left. Used wet on wet technique as I did not want to have hard edges in the distance.

Step 2. Created the bushes on the left ( Camlin Artists water color tubes ), the sandy seashore and the ocean. At this stage I have not added details anywhere.

Step 3. Added layers of colours to the bushes on the left to create the form and shadow, and flat wash of colour on the sandy seashore. Added details to the figures on the beach.

Fishermen returning home. A water color painting by Manju Panchal


“Dance with the waves, 
move with the sea, 
let the rhythm of the water, 
set your soul free”. 
C A Martine

water color painting of a scene that I came across
 while I was at a seashore in Goa. Through this painting 
I wanted to capture the monsoon atmosphere,
 a cloudy evening sky and its lovely 
reflections at the beach. The fishermen are 
returning home after their day out at sea. 
The painting is also intended to tell their story.
