Havana Street

Havana Street

One of the best things in old Havana are the streets with colourful buildings and its Classic cars that people like to flash around. These have been in the country before 1950’s and can be seen in flashy colours. My todays painting was in acrylics- ‘Havana Street’ size- 20 x 30 inch. My focus here was to capture the essence of my travel and the wonderful time I had in Havana. Also I wanted to create texture and bring the brightness in the canvas.

What’s coming next?? 🙂 Follow me 🙂

‘Classic Blue’

After all the travelling and vacations this summer, finally I am getting back to my studio to paint and spend more hours. Here I take the challenge of  daily painting. Ever since I came from Cuba I have been painting the cars in my mind. Cuba apart from known for its Cigars and white sands it is known for it colourful classic cars. I got to take tons of pictures that I can use for reference for my paintings and form great memories. Today I painted a classic car that I believe to be from early 1950’s or much before. A very attractive small four door car stood outside the Celicia restaurant in Havana. The car had a perfect backdrop of plants and wall of the restaurant with thatched roofs. I am glad I painted using high quality material -it  is painted on Arches watercolour paper (100% cotton) and Winsor and Newton watercolours. Size- 11×14 inch.
