I'm off to Odessa tomorrow...super-excited! Its a port city on the southern border of Ukraine. All these European cities are teeming with history and beautiful architecture. Its such a joy to see those cobbled streets and road side cafes with baskets of overflowing Petunias...ahhhh! Not to forget the clear blue skies and the crisp wind...I can hardly wait!!
                                                My next post is going to be 'Odessa through my lens'.
In the meantime, I'm uploading a doodle that I did after visiting Paris.

I have been working on a watercolour. Have finally finished it. Not that it was very complicated; I finished it in 5 sittings.
            The design is not my original, saw it on the was free to download and print. But I drew it by hand as I don't have a printer and it was simple enough. Here I am showing different stages of the painting. I really enjoyed doing it...hope you enjoy looking at it -

This is the third session I think where I painted some of the leaves. Watercolours are very interesting to mix and play around with.

This is the next session where I painted some more leaves.

and this is the finished result with the background all done. Sorry for the quality of the picture. I do not have a good camera either. Lost mine on a holiday.

The shadow on the right lower corner is a jar I placed to hold the corner flat. Couldn't get rid of it.

The Letter 'H'

I am a lazy blogger...agreed! But I am only lazy in posting...behind the scenes I am working on some project or another. Here comes the latest one...It still needs a border to to go around it...Will post again after completing the border. This one is in henna style, rather than the classical zentangle style.

You can still see the pencil lines for the border.
