Snippets of Life, in Watercolor

Winter and summer..together, hand in hand! I was unable to find a subject to paint last week.This is what I did instead- small watercolor sketches from my old photos.Bottom one was done first, then I decided that 'less' was 'more',and did the top one with very light  amounts of color. I like that one better!
All these were different photos, I just put them together.


  1. I love both of them, but think I like the bottom piece a wee bit better. Something about a man and his young son that is so touching. Plus the fabric folds are awesome, Arti. As always, just fabulous work!

  2. That's a great idea, to put together bits and pieces from different photos! I love the winter and summer analogy. This is beautiful, with all the soft blending and dreaminess to the scene. I also like the drawing below! Your work is always so inspiring!

  3. Bonjour Arti,
    Je découvre ton blog avec beaucoup d'intérêt. Ton talent est vrai. Il te permet de saisir des instants de vie, avec une grande sensibilité. Ton sens de la lumière, de la couleur, du mouvement, font le reste.
    Bravo et à bientôt,


  4. Love these Arti. :)) My fave is the bottom one.

  5. You are becoming quite the master of the media.
