" I put my heart and soul into my work, and I have lost my mind in the process."
Vincent Van Gogh
Created four more study works in water colour medium using my photographs from Himachal.
I have also used a few photographs from Leh Ladakh trip which were provided to me by a close
friend of mine.
Most of the paintings as below are done with very limited colours. Since a major part of the
landscape is covered with snow, the other colours that I use are ultramarine blue, crimson,
burnt sienna, sap green, raw sienna and sometimes Indian red.
I keep creating these small works and then when I want to create a larger work then along with
the photograph I use these water colour sketches. After completing each one of them, I write a
few notes under each of these paintings, as a reminder to myself regarding some new colour
that I used OR if I have made a mistake and how to rectify it when doing a bigger painting.
Most of the times it helps.
