Delhi Based Contemporary Water-colorist Since childhood, I have refused to admit that water is colorless, shapeless and odorless. I used to look at paintings and wonder, how one can say that water can’t create shapes? Years later, I joined the Art College at Kolkata. There I picked the brush, dipped it in color and turned to the blank canvas for the first time. Ever since, I have never looked back. That was the beginning. I’m sure there are countless artistic souls out there who try to capture the beauty of Mother Nature on their blank canvases. Be it a clear sky, a landscape or a flock of birds heading home at dusk carrying straws in their beaks, the picture simply doesn’t leave you.
The picture lingers in your head. Hours later, you desperately try to bring that out on your canvas. But unfortunately, the end result doesn’t please you. Reason –The absence of the knowledge of using watercolors. In other words; The absence of “The Stroke”. So, watercolors like a dream and bring your pictures to life. Why watercolors are the toughest to use? The usage of watercolors demands certain amount of expertise. Watercolor paintings depend on the feeling of light and shadow of an object from nature. Watercolor paintings are considered a unique way, to creatively represent dreams, illusions, emotions, and bright feelings using water-soluble pigments. Hence, they call for a great deal of precision and control. This medium of art is very popular, and keeping that in mind we have prepared a list of some really impressive watercolors that will surely inspire you.
