Watercolor Paintings: An Evening and a Forest

श़ब को गले लगाती शाम,
अपने घरों को जाते 
पंछियों से भरा,
सुर्ख़ आसमान।
वो दोस्तों से बातें करना
वो एक तारा ढ़ूंढने की कोशिश करना।
वो हवाएं हल्की-हल्की
वो घर जाने की जल्दी...
शाम अब भी हसीन होती है,
इंटरनेट के जाल में उलझकर,
हम देखना भूल जाते हैं, शायद।

I am participating in a colour-based art challenge on Instagram. Here, I am sharing my take on Umber and Brown colour.

The painting above is inspired by a lovely click by Namrata. She posted it on Instagram and I felt like painting.

When it comes to seeking inspiration, writers and artists have similar approach. Artist is a big word for me, but now that I paint, whenever I look at beautiful landscape/photos, I think 'Can I paint this?' Sometimes, they glare, as if saying, 'Tumhaari ye mazaal! {How dare you!}'

Here's another painting, a forest ---

And, this one ---

Just a practice painting {I was actually trying to paint a figure}. 

I have realized something that writing and painting are different in a very striking way. When I write something, I think it's good, but I don't like it when I revise it after some days. When I paint, I do not like it. I get up in the morning {I usually paint at night} and look at my painting, I think 'It's not that bad.'

I didn't like this painting initially {the left one got clumsy because of my impatience}, but now, I find it pleasant. You? :)

Sharing With Paint Party Friday


  1. Yes, I find your artwork immensely pleasant. Your watercolours are serene. I liked how you did the little figure too, it immediately adds another story to your painting. Happy PPF :D)

    1. Oh, thank you so much for your lovely and encouraging comment. :)

  2. Really amazing watercolours. The sepia really adds depth in the first, so dramatic and I love the purple leaves within the second. Both magnificent.
