Water color painting of Poppies, we artists just love them! The shape, the colors -- aren't they beautiful!...... Pity that I overdid the background to death, here! Hopefully, next time I would know where I am going!....

This is again a semi abstract style of painting with lots of colors and hues ( I like it that way!) I intend to put it on my room's wall...These are watercolors, by the way, but I used them with less water, making textures like I would do with acrylics...However, I used a bit of white acrylic in some places.

Treasure hunt

This was done from a photo that I had taken of my son picking up pebbles at Brighton's pebble beach, UK. As it happened, I was looking forward to taking a lot of photos that day, but the sun decided to play spoil sport.When we reached the beach, it became so cloudy that my spirits were dampened! This photo did not have any sunlight,too...But I have visualized it as I wanted it to be and added my own light here!

Dancing in the Sun

Semi-abstract sunflowers...trying to loosen up a bit ( so much so that did not paint the stems!)! Experimented with colors also.Replaced the green of background with a more contrasting blue ...and gave the same treatment to the browns of the centers of flowers.Does it work?....

Who is That?...

May be he is wondering who is this 'dark guy' which moves along with him...
