I decided to do the cherry blossom. Going back to the new transparent photo colour was not fun to begin with as can be seen in the first attempt. The petals came up ok but then the colour of the anthers came up too dark. Size approx 14cms*14cms.
I was going to say done but decided to give it another shot. This time the colours were right and I like it as well. Size approx 19cms*14cms.
Then came the challenge. We were to select one of the images and paint it using only two colours. I selected the musician son for this. Two colours used are ivory grey and skin hue. I feel sorry for this guy... I really made a bad work on the face. This is approx 13cms*24cms.

The monsoon god(megh raj) finally graced Delhi on friday and life is much better. The greens are greener, temperature nice, not much dust and on a whole more potent atmosphere for some work. I woke up at 5.40 in the morning and felt like painting. And picked up this one to work on. It is acrylics on strathamore watercolour paper. Approx size is 15cms*25cms. After completion, it found place on my closet : )

These days I am running a bit late on schedules and it took me a while to finish this painting.
It is difficult to remember how long it took, but in total must have been 4-5 hours in total. this is acrylics on canvas of size 20cms*25cms.
It was a good to finish it finally. There was no umbrella in the reference photo. But I just felt that she needed an umbrella when going out….!
I think the greens just got dark and darker and daker and have taken focus off the lady. But as I said these days I am happy with just completing the projects… Improvement will hapen along….Also the head portion looks bad. The hat is placed much above the head.... need to get back to bascis of drawing for a while I guess.....
