Learning to paint in water colours
This is my latest fascination...learning to paint using water colours. Again something I have been wanting to do forever. I love the softness of pictures painter with water colours, the transparency of the medium..There are 3 of us in class, which is held in my friend Jyoti's (a practicing) art gallery. Its a lovely space in a quiet part of Kolkata, and certainly inspiring.
This is my first attempt...a sprig from a bougainvillea plant, and I felt very pleased when I finished it. Habib, the teacher, is a gentle soul and spends his time telling me not to be afraid to experiment and that I need to practice. So lets see where this takes me....
