Sometimes....

Sometimes, in a summer morning, having taken my accustomed bath, I sat in my sunny doorway from sunrise till noon, rapt in reverie. ~Henry David Thoreau

She's beautiful. Love the aesthetic of the painting, almost black and white with just the touch of color, and the neat lines.

Hi Kazumi...I usually make use of a limited palette if its only the face..if it includes the model's clothes also,then I use vibrant colors for it. Thanks anyways.

Ramona Davidson said...

Lovely composition. The colors are perfect.

Possum Patty said...

Kathy N said...

Aarti,

I love the expression you got in this one and always enjoy the accompanying quote. Sue

Jim Pierce said...

Aarti, I like this one but it appears the woman is winking because the left
eye (looking at the painting) appears open a bit. Is that the case?

Aarti Harish said...

Hi Jim....glad you spotted that... infact...I realized this myself only after I posted it...somehow..when i painted it..probably...a part of her eyelashes were forgotten to be completed...I guess it is looking funny...thanks that you derived a decent expression of this woman...winking...a different angle to it.

Hello Aarti,

Although I'm somewhat random & inconsistent with commenting on the work
of others (for no obvious reason, else it would not be 'random &
inconsistent' ), I thought you might like to know that your rapid
progress with your own work has not gone unnoticed by me. Watercolour
can be a rather tricky medium, so that's another reason that I wished to
specifically comment just now.

Very nice Aarti. So often, I notice a little something I forgot AFTER I post (I read the comment about the wink and your response). I like your color on this. The mouth is super, maybe because it's the real spot of color - I don't really know why.
