I found less time this month to paint. Today I was determined to spend the afternoon sketching and painting. I have a beautiful green bottle that I bought at Baroda many years ago. I have placed in the bottle two sticks of flowers made with sea shells. I have done a watercolour of the bottle some time earlier. I wanted to work with dry pastels on a tinted paper. As you can see I am so full of blue. On a tinted surface the green and blues worked fine and I did not have to worry about the sea shell flowers, their white got accentuated on their own.
