The Blue Door

"The Blue Door"
Watercolor 
11"x15"
Latest watercolor work.I saw this old wooden door on my last trip to Rishikesh.The paint was peeling-I couldn't decide which color was used to cover the other!The door was also modified and cut on the bottom to adjust with the slope of the ground.It was a modest dwelling with moss covered walls but an artist's eye can spot beauty in strange places....Don't you agree? Have a great Sunday.

  1. I think it is beautifully done, Arti. I've not seen a door cut like that before so I find that so interesting too. You also did a beautiful job on the bricks and mossy cement.

    1. Thank you Hilda, when I finished it, it looked too dark to me and I contemplated painting it again, this time in light washes...but it seemed like too much work!LOL
      Glad you liked it, worth spending time.

  8. This is fabulous Arti. I agree an artist does see beauty in the strangest places sometimes. I wonder around with my camera in tow a lot of the time these days as I never know what exciting sights are around that corner to paint. Take care. xx
