Artist Statement:
I am putting up in this weekly feature, artworks that I have done in watercolours. I have been drawn into watercolours because of its lightness to handle and minimal preparations. Also I find it relaxing and enjoyable that goes into the act of watercolor painting. Its luminosity, transparency and color control from various touch of brushstrokes, makes the watercolors versatile and subtle medium. I am showcasing watercolour paintings from various subject matter; nature, beautiful scenic spots, flowers and still life.
