Murud House

This must be 33rd attempt of this particular spot. Don’t get surprised, I always do 2-3 attempts of most paintings .this one i do as a demo in my watercolor course to illustrate direct approach as well as various color and light relations. Fortunately I can still amuse myself by trying something new in that each time.

Mood and atmosphere in landscape is always assiciated with quality of light painted.
Early morning or evening shots with misty or foggy look with most objlects againt light create a drama of light and we tend to call it mood in the atmosphere.on the other hand wonderful landscapes or busy colorful streetscapes in crystal clear whether or strong sunshine hve differnt mood.they are not as often praised as mood carrying argument is "mood" is not just against light ,misty atmospheric perspective.anyway..
here is one of my "mood"scape.

Wai cross

watercolor for a change on my blog where i 've been mostly uploading acrylic stuff lately.
Arches is really the best watercolor paper available today.It can retain your washes wonderfully even if you go glazing over it many times.

Archway Blue

It is true that many people around here paint their walls blue and as long as it facinates me my blue phase will continue.
Fortunately i was on the right time because soon afterwards the guy in the house also painted the stones around the arch in the blue-paint left with him.

Turban Man Paint far...Face it

The top two are by David Lobenberg ..what he has done so far..,whom I am "facing" in this paint off ..He is indeed a bold colorist and good with faces.
and below some 3 attemptss I am still trying .Usually i do more than 1 attempts and realize probably first was the best.This time I am not sure probably first is not as good as third which is better than the second which is not as good as first it?
When it come to painting Face..face it, there is always a tie between a painterly rendition and getting likeness.
Masters are those who achive both.. like Charles Reid who make our life unhappy
You might wonder all three men look different..Ya ,most of the time people whom i portray refuse to look like their portraits...not my fault..
Pl. visit David's bog.. for his updated work.
