Sea of Space

I love watercolor as a medium, and it is possibly the best one to paint my favorite animal in. Painting with water might seem simple but the tricky bit is in managing the layers of translucency to create the right texture as the colors overlap and blend in with a shade of another. At times when I feel that I might have forgotten how to paint, it teaches me all over again – a dab of water and one stroke of color at a time. 

Not too long ago, I caught a glimpse of the ocean giant. At first, I could only see its eyes. Slowly, it emerged and drifted along to the billowy clouds in the sea of space.
