Its been an eventful week and a whole new experience with the opening of my exhibition.There was news in the local newspapers about the exhibition and television coverage too. Past few days many of my colleagues came to see the paintings and their comments and feedback were really encouraging. I was also able to meet some old friends and made some new friends too. Together with me their were other two artists Ms Anitha Kartha and Ms Bindya Rajagopal . Anitha Kartha specialize in mural paintings and her oil paintings of nature are very detailed and pleasing .Ms Bindya is a professional contemporary artist ,she is an art academy award winner and she also has her own art gallery.
These are some of the paintings I have exhibited for the show. The phalaenopsis (orchid ) painting is one of my favourite.

Here I have lilies again in watercolor. The oldest flower was done on a darker tone than the others.
I have done lilies in water color earlier. Do have a look at them here.

So finally I could break my inactivity and start painting flowers. Today I completed a white lily picture I saw in a cutflower catalogue.These white lilies look lovely and robust .These are not fully opened as the other variety of lilies.I was more confident to take up painting white flowers in water color after I attempted the challenge of doing the last PADT (Paint and draw together) challenge of white flowers in a pot. Thankyou Lela.
Here for this picture I could mark out the white area well but had to do the background color a second time to make the flowers become more prominent. Size of painting 15"x10.6" water color paper
Let me know your comments.
Also I include the my picture posted for the PADT challenge

When I saw the photograph of Iris gardens in Japan posted by my friend in the facebook it was my turn to paint the next flower for my floral series.What a lovely blue!. Iris lilies are beautiful in a group as well as individual flower.The dark blue violet color is eye catching so are the shapes of each petal. In this variety the flower is small. Yellow flower is also a common color found in these plants . Happy to inform you this painting and 8 other paintings posted in this blog (apple blossoms,wild tulips,paeonies,lilies ,autumn leaves etc have been selected for display at Wallframes Art gallery Kochi.

I made another picture of lilies in a more brighter color and with the strong background washes.The color of this one is different from the subtle pink lily I posted last time.The color of the petals is not exactly orginal but there sure is a possibility that this color variety is available. The shape and color of the buds blend with the background washes .
