The Boat

My resolution for this year is to work more in watercolors. This boat was a new subject for me and I enjoyed painting this.These boats are very popular with the tourists who visit Nainital, a small valley in the foothills of the Himalayas in India; which boasts of many beautiful lakes. Recently one of my friends visited Nainital and I borrowed one of his holiday snaps!
I finished it in three sittings, total time spent; about 4 hours.
Watercolor on paper, A3 sized
