I have just completed another painting – after keeping away my brushes, colours, palette, and easel for some time – due to my shifting house.

As it is now, I have continued on my half-completed painting and have successfully completed it.

So you can see that some of the scenes from the beginning were from my old house. The last two pictures were done from my new house.

Well, here they are in pictures:

You can see that I chose a picture which I have snapped on one of my journeys and have used it for my painting. My desk, adjusted to slope slightly downwards and another side table for my paints, water, and brushes are visible in this picture.

The first layers were light coloured or even without paint, with the whites of the paper showing through.

After that, the more dense and thicker colours were added on, including the darker shadow areas.

Almost complete. I would hang up the painting for a few days and try to see what I could do to improve on it. I found that with just a few pieces of wire and paper clamps, I could conveniently hang it over another framed picture temporarily and observe it every now and then until I was satisfied with it.
