We had a painting contest in the office “Story on Canvas”, theme was artwork should be inspired by any famous book/ movie/ character or Series. That being said how can i miss an opportunity to paint anything inspired by Studio Ghibli movies right? So tried my hands on this Dawn scene from ‘only yesterday’
This painting is a scene from a one of the very famous movie of Studio Ghibli.
“Only Yesterday”, directed by Isao Takahata. Movie follows a 27-year-old woman called Taeko across two different timelines, Taeko being a child and her younger-self.
Upon feeling intense wanderlust, she takes a long holiday to visit some distant family members in the countryside to help with their safflower harvest. This particular scene is a one view of safflower field.
During her trip, Taeko recalls various childhood memories of family dysfunction, puberty and first crushes. Her time in the countryside is a transformative experience that connects her to her younger self, leaving her to wonder if she has built a life her childhood self would be proud of.
Only Yesterday couldn’t be more appropriately named.
Friends just wanted to take a moment to thank my friend Charlie, who has featured my work on his blog doodlewash.com
I would like to thank him to connecting me with other artists, you know watching other artists work is always inspiring. Charlie does connect artist to artist. He has a his special skills of quick sketching. He does awesome sketch in few minutes. I really love his artwork and the way he describes the story.

Its been a long I painted roses, so choose roses for today.
In this painting I just focused on those 3 big roses and other I merged it in the background. I wanted to show dried rose on the bottom right corner but some how i need to try it one more time to get that effect 🙂
today I tried this flowers in loose watercolor style, and I am pretty happy with the result! 🙂 i like loose watercolor style and gradually I am practicing it. I have added the same colors to background to create some rhythm.
One thing I have learnt is you don’t need to do everything in detail, suggestive forms are enough with proper light and shadows!
thank you for visiting! Stay tuned for more flowers 🙂
The flashy Poppies were today’s challenge. Actually i am very bad at shadows. As i was little scared to draw them with watercolor, i did it with color pencils. Quite happy with flowers but Need to practice more shadows.
This is my very first time with landscape in Watercolor!
First I did pencil drawing then started with grass in wet on wet, after that trunk and branches and finally added suggestive flowers. I tried to show perspective with colors and sizes. Your suggestions are welcome! Thanks!
