Summer Bloom 🌸


Its been a while since I painted a realistic flower so here it is! It took me a long time to finish this piece of art. Initially I started with very high energy but then I was running out of patience so I stopped working on this one. But then looking at a finished piece I feel like those patience paid off , what say?

What I did is I tried to follow the same process throughout the entire painting, meaning every petal has the same style of layers. First one is very light wash of colors, second is medium dark colors then darker values etc.

Below are the progress photos, I tried to capture photos gradually, also you can see a couple of work in process video clips on my Instagram.

Material used are Prima Watercolors, Mission Gold Watercolors and Arches Cold Press 140 lb Paper.

If you get inspired with my artwork and create any, then don’t forget to share on Instagram with #inspiredbyartbysnehal so that I can see it too.

Ohh yes two more things, first is You are welcome to suggest me a title for this painting and second is I will be participating in #worldwatercolormonth which started tomorrow. Stay in touch for tomorrow’s post 😀

Thank you for stopping by.



Happy Monday everyone! 🙋🏻

I painted these lupins over weekend. It was pretty hot outside in Denver, so I spent weekend painting some refreshing flowers at home. These lupine are one of them.

Material used are – Prima Watercolors, Bee Paper and Raphael Brush. If you want to see a process video, just click here.

Goldfinch in the meadow

Painting background was a challenge in this one. Bg colors are so bright and vibrant, to make that yellow little birdie stand out from background was another challenge. Somehow I managed it for now but I think I might need to give it a try again in near future with different painting style.

I have used Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors and Arches 140 lb cold press watercolor paper. You can see some pro images below.

Brush pen roses

Today I went to public library. I took brush pen and WN color palette 🎨 with me. Got bored of reading so painted these roses quickly.

Have a great day ahead. You can follow me on Instagram @artbysnehal for daily paintings.

Bye bye 2017- Hello 2018

There were so many ups downs in this year. 2017 made significant change into my life on personal front. I lost my two near and dear family members. We had enough unexpected surprises. Bye bye 2017.

Hope 2018 will be a fresh start. May this year bring all the colors and fun in life-like these beautiful flowers in the painting. I hope may you too have a warm, happy and prosperous New Year ahead of you. Happy New Year friends 😀 Cheers 🥂
