Burst of Colours

When I saw the theme of IF last week ('burst'), I was really excited. I was also presented with the opportunity to make a birthday greeting for my father-in-law. He's an architect and so has an affinity for visual arts. So I jumped at the idea of making something arty for him.

IF or birthday greeting...I could only do one of them given the paucity of time. And then I thought why not combine the two and kill two birds with one stone. I will never kill birds, rest assured.

So mid-week I sat down to paint and came up with a bunch of flowers bursting with vibrant colours. Unfortunately, I got to take decent pictures of the artwork only late in the week, which meant I had missed the opportunity to post it on IF site.

Nevertheless, I wanted to share it with you all here in my personal space.

This is Camel Coloured Inks on Fabriano Watercolour paper.

This looks very very nice. I especially love how you have used the dots. I wish you had uploaded this in time for IF. Would have loved more people to see it. :)

Oh yes, Shree, I would have loved to complete this in time. It's a shame I couldn't. But I got the satisfaction that I at least did something arty. By the way, Alok's dad and everyone else liked the greeting card. :)
