Travelling Light

Watercolour (15" x 11")

This is one of my old paintings. This is from the time when I used to copy works of established artists with an intention to learn. I dont remember the name of the original artist. I did not bother to note it then. However, today as I remember the quality of the original I have come to hold him/her in high regard.
I gave up copying works of other artist some time ago feeling that it would hamper the development of my individual style. I cant say whether the decision was right or wrong. Please let me know what you think about it and also about this sketch.
Thank you all for dropping by.

Not a care!

"Not a care", Watercolour, (15" x 11")

This is another of my older paintings. I do not thing the green shadow looks convincing. 
Anyways, the subject is so interesting that i felt it still deserves to be posted here. This "old man" can be seen anywhere and everywhere in India. There is of course the ubiquitious "beedi", the only thing he relishes in this whole wide world. At times he likes to give some unwanted advice to people whom he doesnt know. He has no role to play in the scheme of things, except that things would somehow look so incomplete without him. India wont be the same without his dirty dhoti and smelly kurta.
All comments, suggestions and critiques are most welcome.
