    Awesome works. I commend you for your alla prima water colours. I'd never have the patience for that! Great chroma, you really know your colour theory. I'd love to see any oils, if you do them.

    oil demos

    Thank you for your compliment. Experience of the disciplined practice can give you great results. But the kind of "discipline" am talking about here is the one that comes from a good teacher. Only a good teacher can know what "that" course of discipline is or what that discipline is. There are a lot of teachers/professors. A good teacher is the one who has not only seen the sugar cube (metaphor for wisdom) but has also tasted it. Only then is he able to communicate the taste. The person who has tasted the sugar cube has a better understanding of its taste, compared to the person who's been observing the sugar cube for years; no amount of observation, even it's from every angle, can beat the person who has tasted it - even if he has tasted it for only a second. Frankly speaking, we have a lot of teachers/professors who don't even know about the sugar cube, let alone "seeing" it, "observing" it or "tasting" it, and forget about communicating about it. Posting a few oil demos here.

    Wao ! these are amazing. The first watercolor process piece is priceless. I have never seen watercolor done to such level of delicacy and expertise. Bring it on. I want to see all ur demos !

    Btw, maybe u should set a thumbnail for the thread. I almost missed it because tehre is no pretty thumbnail You can do that by attaching images in your first post but dont insert them into your post itself. The system will grab the first uninserted attached image as thumbnail.

    I love the watercolors! By my opinion, this is the most difficult technique for painting.

    this one have some proportional issues, but overall i love your works, color and volume is really believable and planes defined very well.
    i saved some of them to my "inspiration folder", that one is my favourite.
    thank you for sharing these drawings and paintings, and please, do not stop posting!

    -cheers

    Agreed with the proportional issues on that one drawing, but overall very nice work. May I ask where you learned to draw like that? Any particular teachers?

    my training

    I learned to draw and paint representationally like that in India (Bombay) at the prestigious Sir J.J. School of Art. They wasn't just one teacher per se, but a few of them at different times (5 year BFA with a 2 year focus on foundation) during my training for different media. These teachers, my Gurus, changed my life!
