Keep in Mind Nature's Elements - Water colours

Watercolour Watercolours - Nature's Elements Watercolours (Slightly edited)

A watercolour that evolved out of a lazy afternoon and an idle mind; or was it a restless, active mind ... ? ;) I am not used to painting/water colours so you'll observe that the synthesis, composition is a bit amateurish. But everyone needs to start somewhere, so here I go. Any criticism is more than welcome! As far as the meaning of the painting - no specific theme that I can think of.

  1. Hi! Shamit, nice effort. I would recommend that you read some water-colouring basics online. The technique is very different for water-colours. I have struggled a lot with it and then, gave up (didn't have the patience). Maybe, you will excel in it! :-)

  4. Hi Shamit,Nice work, good original ideas.
    But certain portions are not very clear in terms of the shapes.also usually such hard boundaries are not used while painting(it makes the painting look very childlike)especially when u are trying to convey the idea that everything in nature is connected and then use hard boundaries to disconnect concepts within the painting, it acts as an irony.these are my feelings.But keep working on them, u have a very good intuition that an artist needs.Hope this helps.regards tnbalaji
