Water colour Indian inspiration

Sitting on the front porch of our house in India I suddenly thought I should paint so here is what I did. The first one I think the lamp came out pretty cool but the rest.... I would like to ignore it. I just couldn't get the folliage right in the second painting also it was very frustrating as the paints kept drying up so fast. I think I need to practice a lot painting in a hot country.


  1. These paintings are wonderful Shashi; I hope you are going to frame them and put them on your wall! The first one especially will be a lovely reminder of India.

  2. Shashi, I love these painting! My favorite is the second one of the window - love the vase sitting there and the trees in the background.

  3. Hi Sashi nice to have you back ,I love the paintings especially the second one ,it has beautiful movement in the trees.
    You are so lucky to have such a beautiful view to paint .

    I also love all the dolls your ladies made you must be a good teacher to get them all to achieve such amazing dolls.

    love from sesga xx

  4. I hope you are feeling better now. Your paintings are wonderful. They capture the mood and essence and I think that is hard to do. Try not to be so critical of your painting as you do such wonderful work!
