village alley


Tried on a smaller area (10" x 7") this time.
Made this one without any reference..
Wanted to get a perspective looking upwards from gound.
Spent considerable time correcting the perspectives.

you see any mistakes with the perspective ?

Mustard field

I wanted to finish this painting since almost 2 weeks and here it comes.. Prabal found this pic on the net (without a copyright :) )..
When I saw prabal's painting, I thought the mustard flowers should've been a bit more yellow.
But, when I completed mine, I figured out that the yellow had faded too !
Tried to apply a mild wash of yellow all over again, but did not yield good result after drying..
Any suggestions for retaining the freshness of yellow ?
I used lemon yellow in this painting.

size : 1/4 imperial
paper : imported from Pune :)

And here's a quickie as usual. Tried to retain as much yellow in here..

size : 5" x 7"
paper : Canson Montval
