Recently, I have been feeling very artistic and my creative flare has been beyond bounds. This happens quite a lot when I need a break from college and when I’m ignoring my incomplete lab journal. :p
So this time I went exploring with various art forms. From sketching to sculpting and my favourite, painting with watercolours.
So this post is going to be a compilation of few off my many random watercolour projects.
I’ve only included completed projects.
So, lets go!

I am not very verbose. I am more of a thinker than a speaker. Usually you will find me reading something or the other. For me its an addiction. because reading opens up doors to a world very different from my own. Books give me an opportunity to ponder on the thoughts of other people and experience life from a different point of view.
I have been reading this amazing book by Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram.
I am sure many of you might have heard of this book.

The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
