Watercolour is an amazing medium when you get it right and you never seem to put a foot wrong Ajay! Your paintings always combine simplicity with intricate work like this incredible tree trunk and then those wonderful colours just pull it together. Always love your work.

Beautiful work. Nice and loose. At what time of the day did u paint this?

Ajay Patil said...

Liz, Thanks for kind words, I am honestly still struggling to find ways to simplify the paintings.
Vinayak, it was about 10.30 morning, being summer more sunny than usual

You achieved great effects here with minimum use of color.
