The village

A village scene from western India.  I don't know if the figures in the middle are distracting or confusing .. would it look better without them? Also the closest roof doesn;t look quite right. I might make a few changes to this one..

The Village

This is a smaller sketch of flowers I did a while ago. As much as I like flowers, I must confess that I am not super excited by the thought of painting them. They are so perfect + I find it a lot harder to simplify the petals and the leaves and the beautiful details :) This one was a bit encouraging though, & hopefully some day I will not be as intimidated by flowers! Btw, these are plumeria or 'chafa' - so very reminiscent of home.

A cloudy day. In the city of Echoes, Illusions and Yearnings, as they say.
