Nafisa, Shashank and I went for a walk to the Horticulture gardens in Alipore to see the annual rose and chrysanthemum show! The flowers were beautiful, but possibly not as much of a variety as last year! The sun was going down as we walked and suddenly I saw this wonderful bush with brightly coloured leaves, in yellows, golds and green, like a beacon of light against a carpet of dead and fallen leaves! The kids patiently watched as I started taking reference photographs!
These are 2 of the pictures that came out of the afternoon walk! I have begun to use a black ink pen to enhance my paintings, and like the effect....but I also like the very wet on wet style of someone like David Webb! I feel anxious sometimes that I haven't decided on any one way of painting, that becomes my own distinctive style. Ah well!!!! One will continue to practice and learn!
