On travel

The Mangoes
Been busy with the preparation for my travel to Southeast Asia. I will be away for almost 2 months and probably may not be able to post any painting. But I'll open and hopefully write something here. Also I'll try to visit all your blogs to see your beautiful paintings. I have brought with me my graphite and watercolor pencils so that I can do some sketching. Until next time and I wish you all a very fruitful art days.
In this painting are mangoes from my photographs of my previous trip.

An orchid on gessoed watercolor paper

I was experimenting two days ago using gesso on watercolor paper and painted an orchid on it.
The result was not so encouraging but I decided to post it here, though it is still unfinished. I shelved it for a while and I'm thinking to try another one without gesso. Hope everybody will have
a fruitful art days in the coming week.

Rose sketch

 What do you do when you want to paint but no subject in mind to paint? This happened to me this morning. While thinking however of something to do, I grabbed my brush and sat on a chair of our dining table. Then came a picture of a rose in my head and then translated it into this watercolor sketch. Again a rose, :-).

Auxerre rose

Am busy doing other things. Sorry for not visiting your great blogs. Painted this rose three weeks ago. I named this Auxerre rose because I took the reference photo for this painting in Auxerre, France while walking in one of the streets there after a visit to a cathedral. Was there on 30 October 2011. I value your comments and suggestions.

Windmill and sunflowers

This is an impression on the windmill and sunflowers that I had seen last summer (2011) in Nuenen, The Netherlands. Nuenen is called by its people as 'Van Gogh village'. Here are a few pictures of the place. This is in watercolor on 300 gms cold pressed Canson Montval watercolor paper.
