|Dancers- water colour on paper|
measuring 24" x 36"
Since the time I arrived in Reading, I have done at least 25 new paintings in water colour including a portrait done with coffee. I am constrained to use only water colour and coffee due to my present nomadic life style. The portrait ‘anger or anguish?’is a random face from crowd in India, but the expression is entirely my own imagination. I find coffee an excellent medium to work with. It provides results similar to charcoal but the technique used is more like painting. Since my present accommodation happens to be a serviced apartment, I cannot indulge in working with charcoal, a medium I love. Coffee is a great alternative !
One can realise from the variety in the collection shown below my unsettled frame of mind. Nevertheless, art helps me to remain happy in this situation. As I look back at the conclusion of the year 2012, I can sum it up as stimulating enough for me to evolve further as an artist.
