I am a self taught artist with a passion for water colors. Born in India, I was always attracted to the beauty of vibrant colors and deep hues of the cultural festivals. At the age of five I started drawing freehand looking at various story book pictures. Luckily I was born in a very supportive family. They provided me with all the materials I wanted to explore and never forgot to compliment me on my work, which further motivated me and built in me the confidence to continue.
How and when do you make the cast shadows?
@Diane Hi Diane, to paint the cast shadows start by applying a wash of clear water in the shadow area. Then, gently add some indigo blue while the sheet is still wet. Start at the base of the capsicum and gently sweep it away to almost making it colorless at the end. Then add a hint of yellow for yellow pepper to suggest color reflection at the base of the capsicum. Always start by dropping the colors close the base where the capsicum touches the floor. Hope this helps! All the best.

Water color is like a flow of energy and life to me. To me it is a form of self discipline and celebration at the same time. Controlling the flow of water makes itself a complete guide to self discipline and focus.
