Waiting Flower Girl

IMG_5026

In Havana, a pretty flower girl was seen in her traditional dress, waiting for customers and tourists who would be willing to pay her some money for a picture they took. She stood waiting at the center of square in Havana. What a lovely long dress she wore bright red in colour that would draw anyone’s attention. A head gear that completed the attire and held a flower basket on one arm and a Spanish fan on the other side to beat the scorching heat.

Painted the “Wating Flower girl’ in watercolous- Winsor and Newton pigments on Arches paper (100 % cotton). Size – 8×11 inch.

Ride through Cardenas

IMG_5019

The beauty of reflecting on a piece brings back memories. It also creates appreciation for regions and people around in this world. During the recent Cuba tour I and my daughter went on a sugarcane plantation trip which included a fun XX century steam train ride and sightseeing around Cardenas. As the steam train zipped through the villages, the simplicity of people was visible. Kids with their innocence gazed at the train carrying tourists passing by. I wanted to capture the scene as we passed through the villages in this painting. The variety of flora made me sing the ‘song of beauty’ that I got an opportunity to admire.

Painted this in watercolours on Arches paper (100% cotton) with Winsor and Newton pigments. Size- 10.5×5.5 inch.
