Remembering Autumn

Its been more than decade since I have used water colors as a medium.Last month, thanks to amma and appa I landed myself a brand new set of water colors, brushes and handmade paper. I was incredibly happy to receive these as though using oil paints is much better and has its own distinctive advantage, water colors can be a quicker medium as they dry faster. So I set about painting this picture of autumn...

After completing this, I know why I prefer oils. The scope for modification and creation of depth is restricted, as the paper can withstand only a limited number of layers. Nevertheless I enjoyed the process and will continue exploring this medium along with oils.
