Picked up the brush today

I seem to always like the light and dark contrasts so when I looked out of my guest room window the other day I thought the roses looked absolutely beautiful looking from inside. Somehow the colours looked so striking. I don't think they would have looked so striking from the other side so decided to see if I could actually put them on paper with my limited skills of water colour painting. It was a challenge because painting roses is not easy and especially this pink rose with so many petals was a great challenge. Anyway I just wanted to see if I could get that looking from inside out into bright sunlight feeling in this painting. Don't think I archived it though:-)

It's that time of the year

I love this time of the year. The garden is in full bloom. Just looking at plants gives such a joy. I am sure your gardens are blooming too and you are enjoying the lovely weather while it lasts

The other side of Lake

This is a follow up post from the previous one. Just thought I would show you my feeble attempt to paint the lake from memory from the opposite side. We used to go for walks often along the lake and somehow I can never forget how beautiful it looked with the mountains as a back drop. Ofcourse I painted this oh maybe 30 yrs back and I am glad I did it as it helps to keep my memory fresh even though the painting is not great :-)  I may have shown you this painting before but I am not sure so if you have been following me for a long time perhaps you have already seen  it :-)
