Beached Rowboat

Beached Rowboat, Watercolour on Paper, (14" x 20") 
I just cant get over these boats. Who knows I might have been a fisherman or a pirate in my previous life! ;)  I have not painted a rowboat before. I loved the interesting zigzag pattern of light and shade created on the planks that are supposed to support the bottom board. 
All comments and critiques are most welcome.

Adasa Hut

Adasa Hut, 
Watercolour on Paper, (10" x 14")
Another painting of these beautiful tiled roof houses in the village of Adasa. I have taken so many photos of this place that they may easily last me for a couple of years :).

Thank you everyone for dropping by. All comments and critiques are most welcome.

Old Fishing Boat

Old Fishing Boat, Watercolour on Paper, (14" x 20")   

Hello friends, its been really sometime since I have been able to produce something worth putting up here on my blog. I made this from a few old sketches I made from the below mentioned reference. I think the slant of the boat shape draws us into the painting and so perhaps make up for the imbalance in the composition. 

I think, for a change, I am satisfied with this one, and I would really love to know your opinion on this. So please do leave a comment. :)
