Hi, painting on and off over the last few days I completed 3 paintings, they are here,one is st pauls cathedral, though I had posted earlier, I did some washes over it to make it shiny, though it does not show in the photo, the second is of 3 boats, just to exercise my skills over boats, and the third one is of Tuscany, the landscapes of which are real designers' delight! Enjoy.

St Palus's Cathedral, London

The famous St Pauls Cathedral offers immense opportunities for a painter. I have done that previously, with a closure viewpoint. It is here.

Today I completed another painting, from a different viewpoint, from the start of the Millennium bridge. This is 28"x 20". Have a look!

I am in the midst of a big painting of St Paul's Cathedral, which is half way through and going badly!
As a diversion I did this quick one of an old inn from a photograph. Have a look!

Inside Westminster Abbey

There is a little garden tucked away in a nook of the Westminster Abbey, which was not open for public. I took some photos, and today made a sketch out of it for a future painting. Here it is:

Cornell Varsity Campus

As soon as you enter the Cornell University campus, where my son studies, you see this scene. I just made a sketch of it for the time being, may be a full painting later.

Farm House

Today I made a painting of a farm house with typical settings. Though it is ok overall, there are too many attractions which take the eye away from the focus, the farm house itself, I should have downplayed the foreground shapes a bit I think. Here is the painting.

This is a painting of a windmill, I wanted to exercise with the sky (clouds), windmill gave enough scope for that. A cloudy sky with light sneaking out. The water reflects the sky as well as the windmill(the difficult part of the painting). I think I did OK. Here is the painting.

This is a dorm in RoseHullman Institute of Technology, Terrehaute IN where my nephew teaches. We visited the institute last summer and I took the photograph which is on the left.

And here is my painting of the same!
