My loved one/s!

Blue and yellow - two of my loved primaries, close to my heart, are the basic colours in these two paintings! The yellow roses I wanted to finish on Valentine day but could not and the blue one I finished today . The roses were from a demo in a magazine, just wanted to loosen up, the ship painting is a repeat of my earlier study which I wanted to do on a bigger sheet of paper, just to re-experience the joy I had while painting the blue sky and the water  for the first time. Thanks for your time, comments welcome!

Many Splendored thing!

To borrow a line from Emily Dickinson, like love, Hyde Park is a many splendored thing. It has got immense variety, ever changing colours and moods! Just cross the Serpentine Bridge and the Kensington Palace Gardens offers no less! Living close to these sisters in bloom, it is no surprise that I have done many paintings inspired by these two parks. Recently I did four paintings, each from a different angle showing different feelings. Hope you will like them! If ever you visit these places, try to locate these amazing scenes!
This is the Lido Restaurant, Hyde Park.

This is a view of Kensington Palace in winter!

Sunrise on the serpentine bridge !

Another view of snow-laden Hyde Park.

All done on half sheets, rough surface.

My Pet Project II

This time it is the turn of my grandnephew, Pranav. He is four and a half years and cannot stomach the fact that I painted his sister and not him. His sister's portrait is in hiding till now and it can be made public only when I paint her brother! Now that I have accomplished that, my grandniece's portrait can be shown to all now!
I am happy that this has come out nicely, hope he likes it when he sees it, it is waiting for him.
Comments welcome!
