Georgian Bay - watercolor

Georgian Bay is a large bay of Lake Huron, located entirely within Ontario, Canada.

Years ago, I spent my vacation in the Bay area. The watercolor painting shown here was done at site.

For those interested in learning watercolor painting, I would like to tell about “The Masking Fluid”.

When you want to leave the paper white in places (instead of using white paint), draw the shapes with the masking fluid on the paper and paint on top of it. Later, using an eraser, you can remove the dried up fluid and expose the paper as the white shape. In this painting, I created the shapes of the white seagulls in the sky by this technique.

The reason for introducing the topic of the Masking Fluid here is this:

I started experimenting with it and took its usage to extreme. The result was unique textures which cannot be achieved by any other method. I shall post a sample of that kind of work next week in Vallamai.

  2. சீகல் பறவைக்குச் சிறகுதந்த வெண்மையும்,

    நீரின் மேற்பரப்பில் நிறைந்திருக்கும் நீலமும்,

    வானைத் தொடமுயலும் மரங்களின் பசுமையும்,

    மேலும் பலவண்ணக் கூட்டணியில் பூத்து,

    காணும் கண்களுக்கு விருந்தாகுஞ் சித்திரம்

  3. Dear Su.Ravi, VaKoVi, Anna Kannan and Sachidanandam,
    I thank you all for expressing your appreciation of my art work.
