Last week's water colour painting

Last week we did some atmospheric painting of St. Paul's and buildings across the Thames. So here is my not so great attempt. The conditions were not easy to paint as it was windy and what with pollen flying all over I was struggling to keep my eyes and nose from dripping lol! We were also asked to paint a brick wall as homework. So I did my garden wall. I think I would like to paint it again with all the creepers going over it but since the teacher wanted only the brick wall I had to leave out the plants.


  1. Great efforts, Shashi! I'm not a watercolourist but I greatly admire anyone who works in this medium. I've heard it can be quite unforgiving.

  2. great fluidness to this.. I like them. I especially like the top one, the buildings..

  3. I love the lively and fluid style of your paintings Shashi. And I *like* the plants on the brick wall. I'd love to see you do it again!

  4. wonderful water colors shashi!

  5. I really like the St. Paul's across the Thames..... it is soft and magical....

  6. Great paintings, Shashi! I think you did an amazing job on spite of a runny nose and weepy eyes. I can relate to the misery of allergies- achoo! LOL!
