Season of Wet in Wet


Monsoon is perticularly problem for many watercolorist. Paper remains damp for longtime after washes but then in some paintings it can be used to your advantage.

This full emperial size wet in wet is done from multiple photos as reference. Guess i succeded in creating mood by using wet in wet washes without adding much details :). As paper remained wet for long, did it in breaks and took me unusulaly loner time almost 4 hours

This is wonderful Ajay! You've captured a feeling of unceasing rain and damp with that sky and shimmering water.

It looks so wet and rainy, I feel the cold of the rain! Vey well done as usual. A hair dryer is quite useful in such circumstances, at least for me :-)
