I am really happy to share with you some of my loose work in this colorful and exciting country.
Temples and statues everywhere, bright colors, gorgeous atmospheres… India is a real gift for the painter!

Indian woman holding a jar demo

Hi guys!

I realized that there was a last demo from my Indian prep sketches I didn’t shared with you yet! 😉
That’s a short video where I sketch a woman wearing a yellow sari and holding a jar on her head. What a lovely scene to paint! 😊

I sketched this after a photo and I am really looking forward to painting this kind of subject, on location, in India, next February! 😀
I am so impatient!!!

I am sure that, on location, for some people sketching, I will have to paint even faster than 7 mn for a sketch! 😉

Indian woman watercolor demo. And only 3 places left for the workshop in India! :)

As an inspiration for the week end, here is a video where I am painting a loose watercolor sketch of an Indian woman wearing a red sari. That’s a 5 minutes painting so that is definitely the kind of quick sketch I would like to do a lot in India, in my travel diary, taking advantage of the beautiful and colorful outfits of the Indian people! 😀

By the way, our little group for India (I chose to limit it to around 10 people) is growing gradually. 😊 Thank you so much for the artists that have decided to take part in this adventure with me!! 😀😘

There are only 3 places left for the watercolor trip there, by now, so, if you think you are interested, think about sending me an email or sending one to Nancy, from Going Places Together.

All the information about the watercolor workshop I am going to lead in India from the 19 Feb 2017 to the 6 March 2017 is here on the website and there on the Going Places together website! ☺️

I hope it will be interesting for you to watch! 😊
I admit that it’s interesting for me, too, because it’s a chance to take a step back and to consider how I work with another perspective. Continue reading
