An Off Day

Boats make such an amazing subject for painting and I so wanted to paint them.Unfortunately,these days I do not get much time to paint. Even a few days break from painting made me feel all rusty.The hot temperatures here made this watercolor piece even more difficult for me.The paper dried up so quick and I couldn't manage to get the desired result.I also ruined the paper at some places.:( I wish and hope to learn the art of time management too so that I get to paint more frequently.:) 


  1. My eyes cannot see the places where you messed up!
    The waters look good!

    Nice art again! ;)

    PS: How do you put up your paintings? I mean do you scan them or what?

  2. I can't see a thing wrong with it, Yasha....perhaps you are being too hard on yourself. I know I tend to be that way at times, too. :)

  3. This has such a peaceful quality about it . . . very nice!

  4. I agree with Carol and Enigma,there are'nt any faults,but I do see a beautifully painted scene,especially the light on the water.

  5. @Enigma Thank you for your lovely comment.I appreciate.
    I do not scan my paintings but photograph them in proper lighting.Sometimes it can really be troublesome though.:)

    @Carol I am glad you liked my effort.May be self critique is a way to improve myself.:)

    @Linda Thank you so much.

    @Maria Thank you.Its good to know that you liked it.

    @Azra Thank you.I tried my best to capture the mood of the atmosphere well.:)

  6. Hi, Yasha. This is a lovely scene, and beautifully painted. Makes me want to have a go at watercolors myself! :o)

    Take care, and happy painting,

  7. This is another lovely painting Yasha. The light is wonderful. Very nice work, even though it was a rough go.

  8. Beautiful painting Yasha! Cannot see a problem at all :)

  9. Hi Yasha, yes do paint more regularly. I like this pic. I cannot identify where it went wrong. Looks good to my eyes.

  10. It looks wonderful and a very nice painting of the boats and water.

  11. it is very lovely Tasha. You did a great job on it.

  12. Spoilt, where? I can't see ? All I see is the boats and the reflections in the waters, and the ripples.

    Nice work, and paint when you feel like, its your call totally.

  13. It is such a beautiful subject, handled so very beautifully Yasha, trying to be hard on oneself is nice in a way, it does bring out the best out you.

  14. Yasha, you may have had a different output in mind, but the result is Beautiful. I love the color balance and the water.
    I wonder what more could you have done with the "perfect" condition!

  15. yasha, I have been away too long. You have been doing some outstanding work! This piece is wonderful - love the reflections you did in the water. Great work!
