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.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Hello Dipti, you really did it. Your brass color is wonderful.

  2. Beautifully painted -- I love the zen like quality - how you focused only on the bells ! You have indeed captured the brass in watercolors and I like the red in the painting.
