London Eye from St James Park

I desperately wanted to finish this one which was on my table for quite sometime, before I leave for India for a month! Feels good that there is no unfinished work to come back to! The sky was spontaneous and I like it. The foliage and the buildings also came good. But I had to work hard at the water and the reflections. Am I satisfied with the result? Yes, I can say yes, sort of. Anyway, here is it, and plese judge for yourself! Thanks for looking and may be there will be a break in this chain for sometime, planning to do some sketching in India. See you soon!

Mellow mistfulness

London in a mood of mellow mistfulness! I tried a different technique to bring out this mood of London in this, lot of work, pouring, masking, pouring, masking, it goes on, till I get the desired results. Used only three primaries in this experiment. I won't rate it great but after working so hard, I thought I should share it with you. It is a love's labour, after all.

Brighton Marina

One more from Brighton visit. It is the same West Pier but with a different atmosphere! I included a family with children playing in the beach to show some activity. The sky is overcast but I cropped it to give a peaceful look. Thanks for looking. Comments welcome!
