“Dried Espelette peppers”

Today’s model – a bunch of dried Espelette papers, hanging in our kitchen. I bought it a long time ago, but with all my love of hot chilies, it is still there, untouched, because it looks so pretty on a string.

“Garden cafe, Bagan”

This painting is also from my travels in Burma. We stumbled upon this lovely little garden cafe in Bagan, an oasis of fresh greenery, which was a pleasant sight for the eyes tired from miles of orange-red dusty (although beautiful) landscape.

“Burmese village”

For today’s painting, I looked through my photos from the trip to Burma. It was an amazing trip, although tough one at times. The reference photo was taken from the train somewhere between Yangon and Bagan.

Another painting/sketch which I have done with oil on paper.

The paper has almost no grain and still, I really like how oil interacts with it. You can put it on diluted or thick – it takes it beautifully.
