Another Open Canvas..

Open canvas is what we call our this activity.There was live music going on .Derek Julian improvising on his guitar and we six artists painted six canvases enjoying his music.
The idea is ..I had a very uncertain image of what I wanted to do and as the music started I want to let the music dictate the colors and strokes..on the other hand Derek was improvising looking at the canvas being painted.It wasn't meant to find any parallel between the two mediums but to just get inspired by each other. As for me it was Euphoria defined..

Bike

this was parked in the courtyard of a building .you can see one tree still standing in between the 4 concrete walls constraining it from 4 sides.
A little shower makes a huge difference..in fact all the difference.
My studio is up there in the same building

examination point

we usually have our last day session of my workshop at this spot.A nice corner opp University building ,lot of us can sit together and paint.This is usually the outdoor session of my watercolor course and I insist students to work without looking at what I am doing.a sort of exam for them
coincidentally the building we paint happens to be a corner of exam department of Univ.
the paper used here is montval which is bad, slippery paper made for watercolor.the bad paper sometimes challenges to bring the better in you.

Manali Roofs

"faithfulness in emotional life and consistency in a life of an intellectual is one and the same thing
a confession of failure."
Oscar Wild character Lord Henry says something like this. A consistently great quality and wins can be a management virtues but in art you have to be a "loos"er from time to time to go further..
