Watercolor can leave me totally deflated and wondering why I
chose it as a medium and then I am seduced again by a
beautiful wash or the lacework of an intricate
detail which is impossible to create in
any other medium.” Joseph Zbukvik
Last year I had the opportunity to visit my husband’s ship which
had arrived at New Mangalore port for loading cargo in bulk.
One morning when I got up and looked out
of the porthole, I saw this “Bulk Carrier”
parked at the jetty on the opposite side.
It had probably arrived at night for loading.
The atmosphere was a bit hazy I loved the scene,
the mood and the composition. I had
decided then that someday I shall paint
the story of this ship. Painting is quite like
story telling. I paint what is on my mind
and leave the rest to the viewer to interpret
it in his/her own way.
I have used a very limited palette of Colors

Limitless and immortal, the waters are the beginning and end of all things on earth.” Heinrich Zimmer
A watercolor painting of Senibel beach scene from Florida,
inspired by a photograph from @tryatrip and I am
grateful for the same. Most of the times,
I try using my own reference photo,
however there are times when I come
across something beautiful which I cannot
resist and therefore go ahead and paint it.
