Plein air painting in Lalbagh

Watercolor on bockingord paper
11x14 inches

Last Sunday early morning I went to Lal bagh botanical garden with my husband and my sister. We usually go there in weekends. They do morning walking/jogging, I do sketching/painting. Every time I was disappointed. I was so confused what to do what not to do. This time after searching for some time I found this small bridge with bambo trees.  I sat there and did one small sketch, n then did this painting. And yes water was not there, I included in my painting  :-) For the first time I like the outdoor painting output and the experience also. 

Thanks for visiting!

Here is the color version of temple bells. Yes I could able to get the illusion of brass in water color :) :) :) I am going to share what colors I used to get it , brunt sienna, yellow orche, french ultramaraine and little bit of scarlet red. I applied various layers of wet in wet and then few brush strokes in dry. In this I added red ribbon to get more divine feeling. Hope u like it.

Temple Bells

Pencil on paper

Temple bells. Done form a photo reference by my friend. Actually I was willing to do a painting. But not sure how to get that brass color. So I did this sketch to get the correct values. But still I will learn how to get that brass color in watercolor and then I will attempt to do this in color.
