“Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art.” Leonardo Da Vinci
I have not posted anything in my blog for a long time now. However I have been painting and uploading my works regularly on my INSTAGRAM page, which takes a little less time and is fairly simple. Moreover it also helps me keep a record of my paintings, papers and paints I use etc.
Today’s post is a Still life painting of “A slice of Apple” on Fabriano Aquarello 200 gsm paper. I placed this cut apple near my kitchen window in the direction of sunlight, to get the desired composition.
I have been using Fabriano Aquarello 200 gsm paper for a quite some time now. I find this paper very good for the following reasons:
- It is acid free
- The colors stay bright on the surface
- It is made of 25% cotton, is a student grade paper but a high quality paper to begin with.
- Very economical compared to many other similar papers.
This is my personal evaluation and from artist to artist the opinion always differs. I purchased my Fabriano Aquarello pad from Amazon.in , however there are many different online art stationery stores which sell this paper today and it can be

Size 5” X 7”
The paints used for the above still life painting are Winsor And Newton Cotman tubes and find them really good for the price that I have paid for it. I purchased individual tubes of those colors which I use predominantly in most of my paintings.
Thank you for browsing through my artworks and do go through my INSTAGRAM feed to view some of my latest works and techniques.
