Brothers by Padmaja

9"by 12" water color on paper by Padmaja
I have always admired the way my dad was close to his four brothers. They were more like friends. So thought of doing this for that pleasant memory. I have tried some glazes here.

A rapid sketch....By Suresh Pethe

Today I was going through my sketchbook and I paused at this palm size  sketch. Some months back I was sitting in an auditorium. She was sitting few rows ahead. During an interval I began to draw her..... but at next glance, she was not there and the sketch remained in complete.
But now, I feel, I have caught the essence of the character. What your views are ?

Hilly Path

Watercolour (11" x 15")

This watercolour was done with an intention to achieve a bold and loose effect. I wish I had used a bit of variation in the large piece of foliage on the left. But I am still satisfied with the overall result. Please do give your comments and suggestions.
I find great inspiration in the works of David Taylor. He paints with such a lovely loose and bold style. Unfortunately, I am not being able to put a link to one of his pages here, but I urge everyone who hasn't come across his work to search it on the net. You surely wont be disappointed.

" Mansoon mood " -- by Suresh Pethe

This one is a purely watercolor painting ! Its of Nandi temple at Mahuli near Satara. Strictly speaking you may find it  an incomplete one, as I was earlier. Because of the rain I had to pack up suddenly  thinking that , later on I will complete it at home. But then I thought, I may loose certain natural happenings even I touch it ! Tell me your opinion. The size is  10"x14".
